In the summer of 2022, Gary and Yasmin set off to Tanzania for the honeymoon of a lifetime – a safari in one of East Africa’s wildest parks and a exotic island retreat in the sparkling Indian ocean. Here’s where they went , what they did, where they stayed and a few pictures from their travels.
“We've had the trip of a lifetime! From putting the trip for our honeymoon together through to the amazing concierge service while we were away, this has been not only a dream honeymoon but a dream experience.” – Yasmin Mirdamad

Gary and Yasmin arrived into Tanzania’s capital, Dar Es Salaam and checked in at The Hotel Slipway. This is a beautiful four star hotel with views over Msasani Bay and everything you could need to unwind after your travels and ready yourself for a Tanzanian adventure including a pool, spa and gym.
Landing in Ruaha National Park
Days 2 - 5
They left their hotel and made for Dar Es Salaam’s local airport to fly South to the little-known wilderness of Ruaha National Park where they spent four days on safari enjoying incredible elephant encounters, saw lions, leopards, giraffe and more! They stayed at Ruaha River Lodge, which sits elegantly on the banks of the Great Ruaha River and it’s unique location offers game viewing right from your veranda throughout the day.
