Travel Overview

After exchanging your sacred vows, your honeymoon is the perfect time to lay the foundation for your marriage, spending uninterrupted time together. It paves the way for your married life together. A great deal of effort is worth it so that you can take home perfect memories to carry you through the years ahead.

East Africa Travel Company can assist you with a smooth and glitch-free honeymoon, so you can focus entirely on what matters – each other.



The notion of a honeymoon safari in Africa is often associated with vast open savannahs, balloon safaris, luxury tents secluded from the rest of the world, and intimate moments gazing over huge herds of animals. Tanzanian honeymoons offer all this and so much more.

An experience of true ‘Out of Africa’ can be found in the vast open plains and unspoiled, palm-fringed beaches of the coast.

The East Africa Travel Company offers unrivaled wildlife experiences, including the famous Wildebeest Migration, excellent service and guiding; an array of luxury accommodations; and the unique Maasai and Swahili cultures.

A dedicated honeymoon specialist familiar with Tanzania will steer you away from the throngs of jeeps and busy lodges and towards our carefully selected remote and romantic camps and lodges.

Often very modest in size, these hidden-away properties go the extra mile for honeymooners, offering exclusive dining, special surprises, and unique experiences, such as sleeping under the stars or picnicking in the middle of the bush. A honeymoon is made up of these magical moments, and Tanzania is full of them!

Honeymoon Safari Holidays in Tanzania

Our favorite honeymoon destination is Tanzania. Romantic, exhilarating, luxurious – just let us know what you want, and we can design the honeymoon of your dreams.

 The country offers a wonderful combination of adventure and romance. Tanzania offers a number of small, intimate, and authentic camps and lodges. which offers an excellent game viewing option to book a private vehicle for game drives.

You can also combine your safari in Tanzania with beach time on Zanzibar!

If you prefer, you can spend time on the beach first, followed by a safari – the choice is yours!

Where to go on a honeymoon safari in Tanzania

When it comes to safari destinations, Tanzania divides into two sections – the famous ‘Northern Circuit’ and the off-the-beaten-track south.

Our top picks for honeymooners in the North are…

  • The views from the rim of the Ngorongoro Crater will leave you breathless. Well worth a visit for the scenic vistas alone; The Crater is also home to some incredible big game, including big tusker elephants, a large pride of lion, and herds of buffalo that often stand up to the big cats.
  • The Serengeti – From witnessing the Great Migration to catching sight of the big cats that follow the herds, you and your partner will be mesmerized by this national park every time you set off on a traditional game drive!

Both pack a mighty punch when it comes to the sheer volume of wildlife, including all the Big Five.

Recommended honeymoon activities in Tanzania

  • A game drive 
  • Walking tours
  • A romantic bush dinner
  • A private dining room
  • Breakfast in the bush 
  • Hot air balloon rides at sunrise

In parts of the Serengeti and the Ngorongoro Crater, you can see the Big Five – lion, rhino, leopard, elephant, and buffalo! There are also many smaller predators and herbivores, as well as hundreds of birds. A guided walk is a great way to get a sense of the bush and wildlife around you if you are interested in walking safaris.

To add in a bit of romance, we highly recommend a bush dinner or speaking to our experts to arrange private dining. You can find more details on unforgettable dining experiences here.
