Tanzania – The Perfect Honeymoon Destination

Tanzania – The Perfect Honeymoon Destination

Congratulations! You’re getting married! And where better to honeymoon than in Tanzania? You’ll get three honeymoons in one – mountains, Savannah and beach. We suggest you don’t rush it – there’s a lot to see and do, and you’ll need chill-out time after all the excitement of the wedding. So take a three-week honeymoon to make sure you get the most out of this beautiful country.

Together you’ll face the once-in-a-lifetime challenge of Uhuru Peak, the summit of Mount Kilimanjaro. Cuddling up together with a cold beer, gazing at the clouds below you and the sun setting before you after a hard day’s hike through montain forest and alpine heather is one memory neither of you will forget. And you’ll always remember the vast plains of the majestic Serengeti and the stunning wildlife of the Ngorongoro Crater. To end with, chill out with a visit to the white sand beaches and crystal clear waters of Tanzania’s Spice Island, Zanzibar.

Three honeymoons in Tanzania

There’s nothing like kicking off married life with a bit of adventure. Start your honeymoon teaming up to climb Kilimanjaro. You’ll need to be fit and healthy and raring to go. Ascending Kilimanjaro is a physical and mental challenge and really underlines that you’re a team. Your adventure starts at lively Moshi, the base town near the foothills of Kilimanjaro and you’ll be driven through coffee and banana plantations to the start of one of the routes up the mountain. We suggest the classic Machame Route because we think it’s the most beautiful. It’s an six or seven-day accompanied hike that takes you through four different climate zones and you’ll be camping under a sky full of stars. Highlights include a scramble up the “Breakfast Wall”, a challenging but doable climb just after breakfast at the Barranco Camp on Day 5, and of course the ascent to Uhuru itself, started in darkness but your achievement greeted by the pinks and apricots of dawn on the rooftop of Africa.

Kilimanjaro – the challenge

Tanzania is world famous for its plentiful and diverse wildlife set in a jewel of a landscape – the Serengeti National Park. For your second part of your honeymoon, book a safari to make sure that you experience the wonder and the magic that is this very special, unique place. It is big skies, vast plains and a magical kaleidoscope of wildlife in all of nature’s glory. The majestic landscape is a stunning backdrop to one of the world’s most dramatic stories – the annual Great Migration of wildebeest and zebra across the savannah in search of food.

Safari time – the wonder

For the final adventure of your honeymoon fly to the azure skies and sparkling seas of Zanzibar, Tanzania’s spice island, green and fragrant with dozens of herbs and spice farms. You’ll have an amazing choice of white sand beaches (on which to sip a naughty cocktail) and turquoise waters to swim in and you can spend the entire time just chilling out. But there’s more to Zanzibar than relaxation – you’ll have the opportunity to kite surf, snorkel and dive in some of richest waters in the world. Take a cruise by dhow, a traditional wooden sailing vessel, to Pemba Island, just to the north of Zanzibar. Pemba Island has a stunning coral reef and vertical dive wall and is rich in all the marine wildlife you’d like to see – and there’s a great chance of meeting up with some dolphins, too! Take on some culture in the Zanzibar’s Stone Town, a coral-hued architectural maze of ancient buildings, touched by Arabian, Indian, African and Portuguese influences, and don’t forget to visit the amazing street food market at the Forodhani Gardens.
