Tanzania is one of the best and favorite honeymoon destinations. This country offers a fantastic combination of adventure and romance. The game viewing is excellent, and Tanzania provides several small, intimate, and authentic camps and lodges, many of which offer the option to book a private vehicle for game drives. Additionally, you can combine your safari in Tanzania with beach time in Zanzibar.
Most of our clients who choose the Tanzania honeymoon safari to want to start with a safari before spending a few days relaxing on an idyllic beach. However, you can easily spend time on the beach first, followed by a safari – the choice is yours.
Where to Go In Tanzania – On Your Honeymoon Safari
Tanzania is divided into two regions when it comes to safari destinations: the well-known “Northern Circuit” and the off-the-beaten-path south. Our top recommendations for honeymooners in the North are:
The Ngorongoro Crater:
The vistas from the crater rim of the Ngorongoro Crater are one of the best Tanzania honeymoon Safari packages that will leave you speechless. The crater is not only home to some magnificent big game, including enormous tusker elephants, a sizable lion pride, and herds of buffalo that frequently challenge the big cats. It is also well worth a visit to the picturesque landscapes alone.
Every time you and your spouse embark on a classic game drive, you will be enthralled by this national park, from viewing the Great Migration to spotting the big predators that follow the herds.
Both pack a mighty punch when it comes to the sheer volume of wildlife, including all the Big Five. But there’s plenty to see in the south, too, specifically in:
Ruaha National Park:
Located in the heart of Tanzania and the country’s largest national park, Ruaha is a fantastic area to visit. It is predator-rich and far off the beaten track – an office favorite for value alone!
The Selous Game Reserve:
The Selous is a watery world filled with palm trees, boat cruises, and incredible wildlife. This reserve is perfect for a quiet and romantic safari.

All five of the Big Five—the lion, rhino, leopard, elephant, and buffalo—can be seen during game drives in some regions of the Serengeti and the Ngorongoro Crater. Many lesser predators, herbivores, and birds are also present. If you’re interested in walking safaris, we advise going on a guided walk for the day to get a feel for the surrounding wildlife and bush.
We strongly advise booking a bush supper or contacting our specialists to set up private meals if you want to add a little romance.
