There’s So Much to Love about Tanzania


tanzania safari authentic african holiday

Africa is one of the world’s most romantic destinations. It is completely unique and so much of the continent remains untouched and unspoiled. And just as opposites attract, Africa is a continent of contrasts. The modern day Africa is a vast continent of 54 countries and thousands of different cultures. It is a place of people constantly on the move, growing centres of technology and, of course, home to some of the most epic wildlife viewing on the planet.

Legendary Eastern Africa Safari

Couples, young and old, are drawn to the East African coastline because it features the best of both worlds. That is, a wonderful balance between what Africa is traditionally most known for (think safaris and adrenaline-pumping adventure) whilst also providing the appeal of soaking up the rays while unwinding in a gorgeous beachside resort.

If you choose the right time to go, you probably won’t have to barge through a conga line of tourists competing for the best vantage point. Nor will you be caught up in the hustle and bustle of western life, only in a different country.

The Totality of Tanzania

Tanzania lies in the north-east of Africa. It’s home to two of the most well known African natural landmarks: the Serengeti and Mount Kilimanjaro: the first, an almost boundless expanse of savannah and diverse wildlife; the second, Africa’s highest peak, and the tallest free-standing mountain in the world.

Tanzania features options to suit many different types of traveller, those seeking both total relaxation and exhilaration. The more physically ambitious can take off hiking, view the epic Mt Kilimanjaro and indulge in water and adventure sports while pure relaxation seekers can enjoy some shopping, amazing photography or just taking it easy by the beach. And all this without even mentioning the game drives and wildlife which can be done at a pace to suit any type of traveller.

Tanzania Safari for Honeymooners

We’ve blended the very best eastern Africa has to offer in our tailor-made Tanzanian honeymoon special. This carefully crafted itinerary allows you and your partner to experience the unbeatable exhilaration of a Tanzanian safari, beginning in the wildlife-rich Selous game reserve, with barely another human around, before unwinding for the remainder of your stay with an idyllic beach holiday on the tropical island of Zanzibar.

Vibrant and Scenic Zanzibar

But whether young or old, honeymooner, or as comfortable with each other as the proverbial pair of slippers, you’re sure to find the island of Zanzibar a fascinating mix of traditional living and modern concessions, tranquil beauty and a party buzz. The beaches are sandy white and its spectacular coral reefs make it popular for diving. Between the beaches lie quaint fishing villages where you can experience the relaxed local culture and events and seafood buffets aplenty.

Stone Town

Walk through the wondrous Stone Town, Zanzibar, with its intricate alleys, splendorous architecture and mix of colourful and curious bazaars. Our Destinations Africa 10-day trip also fits in comfortably with most busy work schedules. But don’t take our word for it, go and see for yourself — we dare you not to fall in love.

The Serengeti and Ngorongoro Crater

Within Tanzania lies the Serengeti; a vast expanse of protected national park spanning 30,000 square kilometres. Tanzania is also the site of the world-heritage site, the Ngorongoro Crater. We think of this large site as a Garden of Eden as it is one of the most ecologically diverse habitats in Africa and thus home to a rich assortment of wildlife.
