Home to iconic national parks such as the Ngorongoro Crater, Lake Manyara and the Serengeti with its spectacular annual wildebeest migration, Tanzania is a premier safari honeymoon destination with increasingly popular beach options. Although less developed than other parts of Africa's Indian Ocean coast, there are real cast-away beach lodges that offer pristine snorkeling, scuba diving and sea kayaking. A Tanzania honeymoon can bring together the classic combination of safari and beach, with the minimum of time spent traveling between centers.
For those who like their honeymoon safaris to be more wild and remote, the vast southern Selous Game Reserve is the ideal setting for a honeymoon adventure. The lodges and camps are small and boutique, and whilst there is a lot of game, including the Big-Five, it takes a bit more effort to spot. But people say that lions outnumber people here, so if you’re looking for a more exclusive experience, a honeymoon in Tanzania’s southern parks is a rewarding choice.
Arguably a safari combined with a beach holiday is as good as it is gets, and a Tanzania honeymoon is just about the perfect mix of these activities, as there is also easy access to the powder white beaches of ancient spice island Zanzibar from both the northern parks and southern game reserves, via light aircraft.
If you are both looking to begin married life together tackling one of the most exhilarating challenges in the natural world, look no further than a private climb of Kilimanjaro. Admittedly a more unusual approach to this life ‘big event’, but just like any other Tanzania honeymoon, it’s easy to add on time relaxing on an Indian Ocean beach.
