Everyone wants an unforgettable honeymoon. Something out of the ordinary… something magical. And with Earth being a melting pot of exemplary destinations, picking one country to go on a honeymoon is not easy.
There are places we fondly call “city of love”, “city of romance”, “city that never sleeps” and while these make great honeymoon destinations, there is one place far more secluded and untouched, providing a unique flavor and a heap of intimate vibes perfect for a romantic getaway: Tanzania. So how is it any different? Well here is all the information you need to know if you are planning to spend your honeymoon in Tanzania.
TANZANIA FOR HONEYMOONERS
Tanzania is located in the Eastern part of Africa, neighbouring countries of Kenya and Uganda to the North, Rwanda and Burundi to the West and Zambia, Malawi and Mozambique to the South. The main airport of Tanzania is in Dar Es Salaam, although you can also fly straight to Kilimanjaro for the Safari takeoff places or Zanzibar in the East.
Tanzania offers a perfect setting for honeymooners with a combination of unique experiences in the wild and some of the best beaches in the world. And to top this, it still sees a relatively low amount of tourists each year which helps to ensure you get a more pristine experience without the huge crowds that you easily find in more popular places.
The popular choice for honeymooners visiting Tanzania is to combine a safari with relaxation at the beach. The most well-known places to see wildlife up close is the Serengeti National Park and the Ngorongoro Crater. Both are located in the North-Western part of the country with rich wildlife and almost guarantees sightings of the big 5 – Elephants, Leopard, Buffalo, Lion, and Rhinoceros. This is also where you can experience the famous annual Wildebeest Migration taking place.
If you are looking for a more pristine and less visited place to see wildlife, you should head South where you will find the Selous Game Reserve. For the beach, nothing beats the amazing beaches of Zanzibar. Here, you will find the whitest powdery sand and crystal clear waters, perfect for swimming or snorkeling. Plus, Zanzibar has plenty of other experiences such as spice tour, dolphin watching, or a walking tour of the old town of Stone Town
