Honeymoons & Weddings

‘Bush & Beach’ Honeymoons in Tanzania

Tanzania is a very popular honeymoon destination as it offers amazing game-viewing in iconic safari destinations such as the Serengeti, Ngorongoro Crater and Selous, and beautiful beaches on a variety of idyllic islands such as Zanzibar. Crucially, the different safari regions can easily be combined with the coast, with excellent scheduled flight connections, making Tanzania an excellent ‘safari and beach’ destination. There are also some very affordable safari options and beach hotels, so Tanzania is able to offer a wide price range, though of course the higher quality options are still expensive.

Tanzania does offer great variety in terms of safari regions and beach properties, so we can really tailor-make your honeymoon to suit your personal tastes, interests and budget. The Ngorongoro Crater and Serengeti in the north, and the Selous and Ruaha in the south, are all such fantastic safari regions (especially for first-timers on safari) that even if the Tanzania coast does not appeal, you may wish to consider a Tanzania safari in conjunction with a beach extension further afield, such as northern Mozambique.

There are many safari options to choose from in Tanzania. If you’re looking for romance, exclusivity and pampering, consider Beho Beho in the Selous, Ngorongoro Crater Lodge at the Ngorongoro Crater, Faru Faru in the western Serengeti, and Sayari in the northern Serengeti

For a more adventurous and down to earth safari experience but still with a big ‘wow’ factor in terms of setting and service, try a tented camp such as Serengeti Under Canvas or Serengeti Safari Camp in the Serengeti.

For those looking for a great wildlife experience at a more affordable level, consider Selous Impala and Lake Manze in the Selous, and Mdonya Old River Camp and Kwihala in Ruaha.

It is always possible to combine a more adventurous tented safari with a more luxurious lodge safari to create the perfect balance between romance, pampering, game-viewing and adventure. Tented safaris may require a more adventurous pioneering spirit, but the whole experience is so much more personal and intimate than you might experience in larger, seemingly more comfortable, lodges.

For the beach, the range of properties is huge. On Zanzibar there are a range of excellent resort-style hotels like Breezes and the slightly more boutique Ras Nungwi Beach Hotel. At a five star level, try Baraza Resort.

There are also intimate beach lodges such as five star Palms Resort and Kilindi, four star Matemwe Lodge and the more affordable Shooting Star.

For a more remote and escapist stay, look at some of the islands off Zanzibar, such as the stunning Mnemba Island, or more adventurous Chumbe Island or Fanjove.


We have arranged numerous romantic weddings in such iconic locations as the rolling plains of the Serengeti and the white sand beaches of Zanzibar. Your wedding can be tailored to suit your requirements – either with all the frills, or just romantic simplicity. There is a little more paper work involved and you will need a few days in Tanzania before the wedding, but overall, it is relatively straight forward. Obviously your wedding can be incorporated into a longer safari and beach itinerary.
