WHERE TO EXPERIENCE IT

IN REMOTE NATIONAL PARKS AND AT WHITE SANDY BEACHES

With one-third of Tanzania’s land dedicated to conservation, you can choose from a number different destinations for your honeymoon experience – all special in their own right. From remote tropical rainforests teeming with butterflies to vast and wide savannahs dotted with Acacia trees. The Zanzibar archipelago is home to stunning beaches – lounge on a sunbed or embark on water sports activities. In Tanzania, you can expect an exceptional safari and beach retreat.

When to go

You can visit Tanzania all year round, but there are some important things to consider. Tanzania does not experience summer and winter. Instead, it has two dry seasons and two rainy seasons. The main dry season occurs from June to October. Importantly, it is the period with the best weather for a safari and a beach break. However, it is also the busiest time of the year – book early or venture off the beaten track to more secluded areas instead.

June to late OctoberBest for great weather and wildlife viewing

Tanzania’s main dry season is the ideal time to plan a honeymoon to Tanzania. The weather is not too hot and there is little to no chance of rain. Additionally, humidity levels are low during the day, making it comfortable. This extended dry period attracts wildlife to water sources and the vegetation is not as dense, allowing for easier wildlife viewing. The short dry season in January and February is also an excellent time to visit Zanzibar, with fantastic diving conditions. Be aware that it can get quite busy in the Northern Circuit parks as well as on Zanzibar during this time. For a more secluded experience, travel during the shoulder or low season or choose less visited parks.

March to May marks the season of the long rains in Tanzania. The South-East Trade Winds are responsible for this phenomenon, carrying moisture from the Indian Ocean inland. The short rains between November and December are typically less predictable. Afternoon rain showers are common during the short rains, but they are unlikely to affect your honeymoon. Both the long and short rainy periods transform Tanzania’s landscapes into lush greenery. While game viewing may not as easy as during the dry season, you will have a more exclusive experience with fewer other visitors.

What to expect on your honeymoon in Tanzania

On a honeymoon to Tanzania and Zanzibar you can mix and match to create your perfect trip: a private guided safari, romantic sundowners on cliff tops, a hot-air balloon safari that gently drifts over the canopy of trees, a private bush dinner under the stars, and snorkelling on coral reefs.

How to experience your Tanzania honeymoon safari

It’s best to be guided by knowledgeable and skilled Tanzanians in specially adapted 4×4 Toyota Land Cruisers. Depending on your budget, you can opt for an intimate group safari, a private safari, or a fly-in safari that takes you to secluded destinations. We have compared a fly-in safari versus a driving safari on our Getting to Tanzania page.

When visiting the national parks in Tanzania, it’s important to note that there are hardly and signs to guide you in the right direction, making navigation quite challenging. Additionally, parks can be quite far apart and driving styles may be unfamiliar. For these reasons, we generally do not recommended to embark on a private self-driving safari.

When deciding on where to go, you have the option of exploring the northern, southern, and western circuits. While parts of the northern circuit may be busy from June to October, the southern and western circuits still offer secluded options.

How to experience your Zanzibar honeymoon

When planning a honeymoon to Tanzania, it is more than convenient to conclude a safari with a visit to the tropical beaches of Zanzibar. This archipelago, situated only 35 km from Tanzania’s coast, comprises over 50 islands and is a captivating semi-autonomous region. Its location has been hotly disputed for centuries, making it an excellent destination for those interested in exploring its rich cultural heritage.

The three main islands, Unguja (commonly known as Zanzibar), Pemba, and Mafia, all have amazing beaches and accommodations. Let one of our country experts assist you in finding the perfect place to stay.

Typically, following a final scrumptious breakfast in the bush, you will board a small plane to Zanzibar. Upon arrival, you will receive a warm welcome and be taken to your beach retreat where you can enjoy the barefoot luxury life.

Whether you want to swim in the Indian Ocean, explore the reef on a boat ride, dive with whale sharks, or simply unwind on pristine white sand, the opportunities are endless.

How to plan your Tanzania honeymoon package

What to see and do on romantic getaways in Tanzania

A honeymoon is a fantastic opportunity to enjoy some of the most unforgettable experiences of your life, and Tanzania is fortunate enough to offer an abundance of unique and memorable experiences.

A Guided Safari

There are various types of guided safaris, such as group, private, and fly-in safaris, each with its unique features. However, one thing that is consistent across all our safaris is exceptional wildlife viewing.

A Fly-in Safari

For a truly unforgettable honeymoon, consider a fly-in safari. Why spend your precious time driving in a 4×4 between parks when you can fly into remote, beautiful and rarely visited regions of Tanzania? Stay in luxurious accommodations and experience the wonder of Tanzania’s wildlife and secluded landscapes.

A Balloon Safari

The name does not do justice to this experience. Arrive before the break of dawn to climb into a basket and be warmed by the burners. As you rise over the plains you watch the sunrise over Africa. With the burners off you drift silently over incredible landscapes to watch the wildlife below. It is a magical experience.

A Private Bush Supper

A table for two under countless stars and surrounded by only the sounds of nature has to be the most romantic dinner on the planet. Amazing food in the middle of nowhere will also make your tastebuds very happy.

Coastal Experiences

Zanzibar offers a variety of activities such as relaxing, snorkelling on the coral reef via boat, participating in a half-day spice tour, touring conservation areas, exploring the historic Stone Town, and scuba diving.
