Honeymoon meets safari in Tanzania

If you crave an adventure after your wedding, our Tanzania honeymoon packages take you to Africa’s top safari destinations. Dive into the depths of the Ngorongoro Crater, witness the Great Migration in the world-famous Serengeti and discover gems like Lake Manyara or Arusha National Park. In these beautiful landscapes you’ll come eye to eye with African animals of all kinds, including the Big Five.

You want to add that special something to your safari? Then head out after sunset during a night game drive. Your heart will beat a little faster when you spot some shy nocturnal animals or simply a pair of eyes in the dark of the night… the perfect excuse to move a little closer to your loved one.

Tanzania is also home to Africa’s highest peak, Mount Kilimanjaro. Of course you can climb it with your partner – an experience which will strengthen your bond even further.

Private honeymoon safaris

With your personal safari guide and vehicle, immerse yourself in the safari experience at your own pace. You want to see all the highlights in one national park or travel around to see as much as possible from this unique country? Everything is possible: our private honeymoon safaris are tailored to your wishes.

Spend lazy afternoons observing prides of lions, start early to witness elephants bathe at sunrise, or picnic under acacia trees in absolute privacy before heading out to search for that animal you’ve always wanted to see. The itinerary of your Tanzania and Zanzibar honeymoon is 100% up to you.

Safari and beach – a match made in heaven

When spending your honeymoon in Tanzania, Zanzibar or another paradise-like island should be on your list! After a safari filled with wildlife and wonder, it’s time to discover another side of Tanzania.

Slip away to Zanzibar or islands like Pemba, Mnemba or Mafia, which are almost made for honeymooning. Lounge hand-in-hand underneath the palm trees, wander along the pearly white sand and jump into the turquoise Indian Ocean.

Of course you can also fill your days with cultural and thrilling activities: from wandering through the alleyways and spice markets in Stone Town to swimming with whale sharks – boredom is something you won’t encounter here.

No matter how you spend your day, end it with a candlelit dinner for two for that very special sparkle.

Activities for your Tanzanian honeymoon

Adventure, culture, relaxation – there are plenty of unforgettable activities for your honeymoon in Tanzania and Zanzibar. These are our top three:

  1. Sunset dhow cruise: Set sail aboard a graceful dhow ship built in the ancient Swahili style as the sun sinks slowly behind Zanzibar’s horizon. Enjoy tropical cocktails and delicious bites while grooving to live music and snuggling close to your sweetheart.
  2. Hot air balloon safari: This special safari offers perspectives of Tanzania’s wilderness that few will ever witness. You and your beloved will lift off gently to Cloud Nine (almost) with a colourful balloon and in a woven basket. Simply slow down, fully soak in the majesty surrounding you and enjoy.
  3. Visit a Maasai village: Get to know this fascinating tribe and learn more about their everyday life and traditions. Nice plus: you can get some Maasai jewellery as the perfect honeymoon keepsakes. And if you want, you can even get married again in a traditional ceremony.
