How do you imagine your luxury safari honeymoon? Picture this…
It’s dawn. This morning you rose in the delicate hour just before sunrise, enjoyed a coffee, then slipped out of the camp. Your private 4x4 finds its way over the terrain, the pre-sunrise glow showing you the way. There’s no ‘goal’ as such: you’re here to watch nature, and enjoy whatever gift she bestows on you this morning. She never disappoints. Yesterday, it was an elephant matriarch and her tight-knit family, youngsters frolicking alongside their plodding parents. Today, it’s a lioness on the hunt, who spots you long before you see her. The jeep stops. Through the tall grasses, you watch the lioness and she watches you. A mutual exchange of fascination and wonder. Transfixed, you reach for your partner’s hand. Can this really be happening?
Yes, it can be really happening. This isn’t a one-off. This is every day on safari.
Above all else, a safari is about connection. Connecting with wildlife, with earth, with other cultures and, most importantly whilst on honeymoon, with the one you love.
Africa is home to some of the world’s most remarkable safari destinations, and Tanzania stands proudly amongst the best and most diverse.
Its highlights include the iconic Serengeti, backdrop to some of the most dramatic moments in the natural world as the wildebeest herds make their death-defying annual migration, the soaring heights of snow-capped Kilimanjaro, and the UNESCO World Heritage site of the Ngorongoro Crater, home to hippo, rhino, flamingo and lions.
For something a little different, perhaps try remarkable Ruaha National Park, home to East Africa’s largest elephant herd, or the wetland environment of the Selous, where you can even track the elusive leopard.
In all these locations, Tanzania can boast some of Africa’s most luxurious, private, and ecologically-minded accommodations. Spend a romantic evening on your private terrace or take a dip in your plunge pool, watching the wildlife roam just beyond your walls.
What’s more, after the thrill of safari, consider decompressing on the pristine shores of Zanzibar or its neighbouring islands. The choice is entirely yours.
