An East African Honeymoon

Combine the wilderness of the East African Plains with the Beaches of Zanzibar


The Tanzanian Experience is a 12-day luxury safari and island honeymoon bringing you the best of East Africa:

The wildlife in Tanzania is legendary: the spectacle of nearly two million wildebeest and thousands of zebra on their annual migration through the vast plains in the Serengeti plains; the amazing birdlife and forest animals of Lake Manyara; the abundant game of the Ngorongoro Crater; and the teeming schools of tropical fish of the Zanzibar Islands.

Tanzania’s people, culture, wildlife and beauty make it one of the most amazing honeymoon destinations in Africa. The safari lodges and hotels in this itinerary each offer something different, romantic and unique to each landscape. The service and food at each property are of the highest quality and combined with location it’s a winning combination for an all round successful safari experience.  Ending with a few days on a beach on Zanzibar Island is the perfect chill out at the end of an awesome wildlife experience.

Day 1 - 2: Onsea House, Arusha

Fly in to Kilimanjaro International Airport, the gateway to the northern safari circuit of Tanzania, and transfer to Onsea House in Arusha to relax and get into the safari mood.

With glorious mountain views - of the Maasai Steppe and Mt. Meru - and a large refreshing pool, Onsea House is a great way to start your holiday.

Meals: breakfast

Day 2 - 4: Lake Manyara Tree Lodge, Lake Manyara National Park

A short flight takes you to Lake Manyara National Park where a large soda lake attracts thousands of birds and the forested shores are home to a diversity of animals including tree-climbing lions, elephants and yet more birds.

Spend two nights in the wonderful Lake Manyara Tree Lodge enjoying nature walks, game drives and plenty of good food and wine in the middle of the Tanzanian wilderness.

Meals: full board including local drinks

Day 4 - 6: Ngorongoro Crater Lodge, Ngorongoro Crater National Park

From Lake Manyara it's a scenic drive to the magnificent Ngorongoro Crater - the world’s largest intact volcanic caldera and UNESCO World Heritage site - festooned with wildlife living in a Utopian paradise. And it’s not just animals that favour the crater: along the way, stop at the Olduvai Gorge (also called Oldupai Gorge) outside the crater and visit the museum showcasing the oldest known fossil records of the human species who no doubt appreciated the permanent source of food and water in the crater.

Explore the crater on a guided game drive safari and retreat to the comfort of the Ngorongoro Crater Lodge on the rim of the caldera, 600m above the plains.

Meals: full board including local drinks

Day 6 - 9: Grumeti Serengeti Tented Camp, Serengeti National Park

Fly from Ngorongoro to the Serengeti Plains. Time it right for The Great Wildebeest Migration and you have, quite possibly, the greatest wildlife show on Earth as a two-million-strong sea of wildebeest and zebra cross the great plains towards fresh grazing.

Even out of migration season, the Serengeti is one of Africa’s best game reserves and all-round safari destination. Enjoy three days on safari in the Serengeti in a private concession far from the busy tourist routes of the public park.

Meals: full board including local drinks

Day 9 - 12: Baraza, Zanzibar Islands

Fly from Grumeti after a leisurely breakfast to the island of Zanzibar and transfer by road to the east of the island.

Baraza is a small and luxurious hotel on a secluded, white-sanded, coconut-palm-fringed, azure-watered beach. Spend three days relaxing in the shade or snorkelling, diving, fishing, exploring the island and gorging on fresh seafood.

Meals: full board including local drinks

Day 12: Departure

From Zanzibar you can fly to Europe and onwards or you can fly back to Dar es Salaam to catch your connecting flight home after what must surely be the best East African safari and beach holiday you could ever imagine. See you next year.
