Honeymoon Guide to Tanzania: An African Adventure

Offering the perfect balance between exhilaration and relaxation, Tanzania could be the ultimate honeymoon destination. Imagine a spectacular African Safari searching for the elusive big five (the lion, elephant, buffalo, leopard and rhino) contrasted the following day by beautiful white sandy beaches and crystal blue waters to help you unwind from your wedding celebrations.  Tanzania bestows upon its guests romance in abundance with spectacular sunsets and brightly lit star filled night skies over the breathtaking plains of Africa.

African Safaris feature on most people’s bucket list and experiencing this amazing display of nature is undoubtedly one of the most unique experiences you will ever have. If you think a safari equates to roughing it in the wilderness, think again; there are luxurious safari lodges available that have all creature comforts matched with the superior service of some of the world’s top hotels.  Think exclusive villas and private sanctuaries overlooking the open plains or perched upon the treetops to spend one-on-one time with your other half.

Our top pick in Tanzania, is the famous Serengeti region thanks to its vast, open plains that epitomise Africa and its stunning display of the circle of life with year-round wildlife viewing options.  Close by the Serengeti is the Ngorongoro Crater, an old volcano now home to many of our favourites – the rhino, lion and even the hyena.  Likewise, full of continuous wildlife encounters, this crater has breathtaking scenery, creating absolutely stunning photography opportunities.

For an island retreat to remember, check out the stunning island of Zanzibar. Full of white sandy beaches lined with palm trees overlooking the crystal clear waters with hints of barrier reefs, take time out to snorkel, dive and explore this paradise. This small island is not only brimming with beautiful beaches, but with history and culture. The world heritage site of Stone Town can be easily found alongside the stories of the spice and slave trade of the 19th century. Zanzibar is not just a stopover, but a destination in itself sitting idly ready for exploration and relaxation.
