Romantic, adventurous, luxurious - Tanzania is one of our favourite honeymoon destinations!

Tanzania Honeymoon Safari Vacations

Tanzania is our favourite honeymoon destination. Romantic, exhilarating, luxurious – just tell us what you would like, and we’ll design a honeymoon that is absolutely perfect for you.

This country offers a fantastic combination of adventure and romance. The game viewing is exceptionally good, and Tanzania offers a number of small, intimate, and authentic camps and lodges, many of which provide the option to book a private vehicle for game drives.

Additionally, you can combine your safari in Tanzania with beach time on Zanzibar! Most of our clients who choose Tanzania for their honeymoon want to start with a safari before spending a few days relaxing on an idyllic beach. However, you can easily spend time on the beach first, followed by a safari – the choice is yours!

Where to go in Tanzania on your honeymoon safari

When it comes to safari destinations, Tanzania divides into two areas – the famous ‘Northern Circuit’ and the off-the-beaten-track south. 
Within the North, our top picks for honeymooners are...

  • The Ngorongoro Crater - The views from the Crater rim are sure to have you gasping with awe. Well worth a visit for the scenic vistas alone, the Crater is also home to some incredible big game, including big tusker elephants, large prides of lion and herds of buffalo that often stand up to the big cats.
  • The Serengeti - From witnessing the Great Migration to catching sight of the big cats that follow the herds, you and your partner will be mesmerised by this national park every time you set off on a traditional game drive!

Both pack a mighty punch when it comes to sheer volume of wildlife, including all the Big Five. 
But there’s plenty to see in the South too, specifically in...

  • Ruaha National Park - Located in the heart of Tanzania, and being the country's largest national park, Ruaha is a fantastic area to visit. It is predator-rich and far off the beaten track - an office favourite for value alone!
  • The Selous Game Reserve. - The Selous is a watery world filled with palm trees, boat cruises, and of course some wonderful wildlife. This reserve is perfect for a quiet and romantic safari!

Recommended honeymoon activities in Tanzania

  • Game drives 

  • Guided walks

  • Romantic bush dinners

  • Private dining

  • Bush breakfasts 

  • Sunrise hot air balloon rides

Parts of the Serengeti and the Ngorongoro Crater are amazing for game drives featuring all Big Five – lion, rhino, leopard, elephant, and buffalo! There are numerous smaller predators and herbivores too, and hundreds of birds. If walking safaris appeal, we suggest spending an afternoon on a guided walk to get a great sense of the bush and wildlife around you.
To add in a bit of romance, we highly recommend a bush dinner or speaking to our experts to arrange private dining. You can find more details on unforgettable dining experiences here.
