Itineraries - Tanzania honeymoons

Welcome to our itineraries page! Tanzania is a large country, and is actually one of the most complicated in terms of working out which parks to combine (true for Northern Tanzania mainly). It can therefore be a good idea to browse through these options as some inspiration for your trip. Something may catch your eye about the Ngorongoro region which makes it a must-see for you, or you may fall head over heels with a lodge in the wild west of the country.

We can craft any itineraries to suit you entirely, providing that it is all logistically possible with your time frame and budget.So please note this page is merely here to give you an idea of some of our favourite combinations. We hope this serves as a useful tool for not just inspiration, but so you can work out the kind of trip you can get for your budget and time frame. 

Happy browsing!

A GUIDE TO TANZANIA SAFARI HOLIDAY ITINERARIES


All of our 50 itineraries are tailor made for each individual client, according to their budget, requirements and preferences.  We don't sell pre-packaged trips of any kind.  However, in order to show you how some of the different elements can fit together, and some of the kinds of trips that previous clients have taken, we set out here a few example itineraries.  These are for illustration purposes only and should not be read restrictively.  Your trip can include elements of any combination of any of these itineraries - the only limitations are your budget and your timeframe!

Below please select the kind of trip you are after. If you are unsure, here is a little guide... 

  • Northern - Northern Tanzania including Ngorongoro and The Serengeti
  • Southern - The Selous, Ruaha, Mahale and Katavi
  • Honeymoon - These are a selection of the most romantic spots on the continent. 
  • Family - When taking the family, you need to be sure all ages are entertained and the lodges don't break the bank when paying for little ones, so here are our favourite picks throughout the country. 

Then select the style of trip you are after; 

  • Adventure - This is still not camping as we know it! Expect here rustic, but comfortable and authentic accommodation. No frills, but no compromising on still exceptional levels of comfort and service. 
  • Classic - A step up from adventure, this is a perfect style for those who are after a barefoot luxury experience. With very high quality camps, but no super luxury frills. 
  • Premier - For those who are lovers of luxury... Not much is missing on these trips! 
  • Expert - If you are after the very best the country has to offer, this is for you. Private pools, butlers and even private safari parks... This is the creme de la creme of Tanzania holidays.

Team this with fantastic rooms, lovely food and great service and we have ourselves a champion of beach lodges.

    Machweo Retreat is the newest addition to Onsea House, its sister property.  Onsea House is one of Arusha’s best little properties and Machweo retreat is right next door, replicating the same level of quality in service and rooms.  The food here is exquisite and some of the best in east Africa.

    Plantation Lodge is probably our favourite coffee plantation in the Ngorongoro Highlands.  It’s tranquil, scenic and in a great spot for easy access to the Ngorongoro Crater and Lake Manyara.  The rooms are simple but luxurious and the food is particularly good as they make use of their fine organic vegetable garden.  There are other great places such as Gibbs Farm in the area but we feel that Plantation is setting the highest standards at the moment.

    Siwandu reigns supreme in our opinion. It has a fantastic location, great guides and gorgeous tents offering every luxury in a truly authentic style.  Discreetly tucked amongst the palm trees on the banks of Lake Nzerakera, it has everything you could want in a safari holiday and is definitely our number one tented camp in the Selous.

    Jongomero is an absolutely exceptional safari camp.  It is one of our favourites in the whole of Tanzania, which is not a compliment we hand out easily.  It is the most luxurious camp in the park as well as offering fantastic service, the most remote location and guiding so good it borders on genius.  Jongomero really is a firm favourite and one we highly recommend.

A blockbuster of an itinerary.  Finest lodges throughout, with safari time split between river crossings and a private reserve.  Private island on the beach to end....

  • There are few luxury properties in and around Arusha, of all these the Arusha Coffee Lodge is the best.  Owned and run by Elewana, this property maintains great levels of quality and service.  Being located on a working coffee plantation allows a different sort of feel and air to your stay.  A stay in Arusha would normally be a one night stop, at most, two. If you are looking for something a bit cheaper then Onsea House or Machweo Retreat would be our first choice and if they are full then Rivertrees is the next best option.
     

  • Without doubt one of the top ten hotels in the world.  Perched on the rim of the Ngorongoro Crater and with views to die for; people come to Tanzania just to stay here.  This is &Beyond’s flag ship property; quirky and something different from other properties on a northern itinerary.  &Beyond call it ‘ Masaai meets Versaille’, we find it verging on over the top - but if you can afford it  - you must stay here!

    Singita Faru Faru is one of our very favourite lodges. Run by Singita, the lodge is the lovechild of Paul Tudor Jones (a billionaire who runs them as his playthings!) and Faru Faru can be counted as probably the best safari lodge Tanzania.  One of three of their supreme properties (Sasakwa and Sabora being the others) it forms part of the private Grumeti Reserves, situated in the west of the Serengeti.  Yet because it’s a private park you can night drive, horse-ride and walk.  A modern interpretation of a classic safari lodge, it has intimacy, luxury and excellent guiding in spades.

    Travel writers have often named Mnemba as one of the top beaches in the world, certainly in Africa.  Mnemba is the ultimate definition of barefoot luxury, one of the few places where you can snorkel straight off the beach and onto pristine reef.  Owned and run by &Beyond, the food and service is top class- however, all this does come an eye watering cost…

    Lamai Serengeti is an absolutely fantastic lodge.  It is of the highest quality and probably boasts the best service in the region.  It sits upon the Kogakuria Kopje, with breathtaking views down onto the Lamai wedge.  It is like a breath of fresh air when compared to a lot of luxurious safari camps with its quirky style and incredible location.

    Beho Beho has been blessed with one of the most sublime views in the Selous game reserve.  It provides its guests with every luxury and more, whilst over looking a huge area of true wilderness. The lodge consists of 9 stone bandas (the panoramic view comes free) that are not left wanting in terms of providing their guests with every comfort possible. The food, guiding and service are all of the very highest standard.

    Greystoke is one of the best lodges in Africa, there is really nowhere else like it and the game experience is very different – trekking in the Mahale Mountains for Chimpanzees!  Lake Tanganyika is an ancient lake and the second largest by volume in the world.  The main thatched building sits on the white beach and the 6 bandas are hidden into the edge of the undergrowth with incredible views out onto the water.  It’s not cheap but if you have travelled all this way then you simply must stay at this lodge.
