A list of the best honeymoon activities and accommodation in Tanzania

1st March 2019

When you are looking at booking a honeymoon, no stone must go unturned to ensure you get the absolute best and most special trip possible, and for the best price possible… Especially when paying for weddings are also involved! At Tanzania Odyssey we really do know our stuff and can guide you to the most romantic lodges, experiences and special offers the country has to offer both on safari and on the beach.

Let’s kick things off with the most romantic honeymoon experiences Tanzania has to offer.

Hot air ballooning in The Serengeti and most recently, Ruaha National Park

Now make note that this is not a cheap experience. It is definitely for those who have ample budget, and want to splash out on an extremely different safari experience. You start early (very early, even by safari terms!) and drive out from camp to the hot air balloon site where you will ride for around an hour over the vast Serengeti plains, and time of year dependant, you could even be lucky enough to catch the thousands of grazers involved in the Great Wildebeest Migration below. To have a chance of being on your balloon ride over the Migration, you must be in The Serengeti from July – October, as the herds are generally in the north at this time of year, and northern Serengeti is the only area of the park that allows balloon rides. Price-wise, you are looking at around $550 per person…

In the Serengeti, the best honeymoon hideaway is Serengeti Safari Camp for a truly authentic, tented yet absolutely and utterly romantic safari experience…

In Ruaha, you can’t get much more luxurious or much more wow factor than Jabali Ridge… We absolutely love this lodge.

Sleeping under the stars in the Selous Game Reserve

There is nothing quite like looking up and seeing the milky way in all it’s glory. What set’s this experience apart from any other is that in The Selous you are surrounded by pure African wilderness and all the stirring of the night which goes with it. Just you, your partner and a guide – it is an extraordinary experience and will probably be the most memorable evening you share with your new spouse.

Stay at Sand Rivers for unrivalled barefoot luxury either side of a sleep out under the stars…

Dinner at Emersons on Hurumzi in Stone Town

A little hidden gem in Zanzibar’s Stone Town can transform a nice evening wondering around it’s cobbled streets into a really special one. Book in advance for the Emersons rooftop dinner experience as it tends to get booked up pretty far in advance. You can either sit at a table or on the floor on the Zanzibari cushions… Wherever you sit though, the unmistakably atmosphere of Stone Town is all around.

Where else to stay in Zanzibar for your honeymon than at the beautiful Xanadu Villas… You may not make it to Emersons though, as it will be difficult to pull yourself away from their ex-Michelin star chef…

Happy planning!
