Tanzania is becoming known as the ultimate luxury safari honeymoon destination and we’re not surprised. This vast country still has many areas where one can get off the beaten track, never compromising on luxury, and experience vast remoteness unlike anywhere else in the world.
What could be more romantic than that? Days are spent in areas with vast open plains, rivers and forest, in small and intimate camps where private candlelit dinners and sweet sundowners are the order of the day – where lions roar into he night as you snuggle into a warm and comfy bed.
This is Tanzania, and it is magical.
The Tanzanians really know how to look after their honeymooners, nothing is too much trouble, they add extra touches to make sure you really know you’re on honeymoon. Safaris represent an old freer world where areas were still being discovered and this brings out the romantic side in everyone. The light in Africa is also magical. From sunrise to sunset there is an ethereal quality to the light which makes the phrases ‘rose tinted glasses’ seem more real.
Tanzania is close to Zanzibar, which also boasts some of the most luxurious and spoiling beach retreats in all of Africa,so the two combine beautifully to create the perfect safari and beach honeymoon. Many of the beach properties offer a discount for honeymooners, and also include honeymoon treats and surprises. The safari properties don’t tend to offer discounts for honeymooners but once again they will include treats and surprises to make this a once in a lifetime trip.
Having said that ultra luxurious Selous lodge Sand Rivers Selous is currently offering 50% off for the bride. This lodge is extremely luxurious and romance here is undeniable. Set on an s bend in the Rufjiji River this camp is heaven. Tanzania and the Selous in particular also combine very well with Mozambique, which offers island retreats and always offers discounts for honeymooners.
