There are many lodges with magnificent settings that are ideal for a romantic holiday. You’ll be made to feel at home wherever you go and will create special memories that will last a lifetime.
Where to go on a Tanzania honeymoon safaris
Our top picks for honeymooners in the North are the Ngorongoro Crater and the Serengeti. The Crater is home to some incredible big game, including big tusker elephants, a large pride of lions, and herds of buffalo that often stand up to the big cats. The Serengeti national park is also a national park that is full of wildlife, including all of the Big Five and the famous Wildebeest’s great migration
Southern Tanzania also has plenty to offer, specifically in terms of amazing national parks. Ruaha National Park, located in the heart of the country, is the largest national park in Tanzania and is home to a wealth of predators. Nyerere National park (Selous game reserve) is another great option, especially if you’re looking for a quiet and romantic safari.
The island of Zanzibar is a great choice for a honeymoon beach holiday. There are many excellent beaches to choose from, at a wide range of prices. There are also other nearby islands that cater to avid divers (Mafia and Pemba) and a few private islands (Mnemba and Fanjove) for the ultimate in exclusivity.

How much does a Tanzania honeymoon safari cost?
Tanzania is one of the best honeymoon destinations and offers a variety of accommodation options, with safari prices starting at $450 per person per night and reaching $2,500 for luxury safaris.

When to go on a Tanzania safari and beach honeymoon?
Tanzania is located in the tropics and has an average temperature of 25 degrees Celsius. The best time to visit Tanzania is from July to September when the weather is dry. April and May are the rainy season and are not recommended for beach time.
The rainy season can be a great time to visit Tanzania if you’re on a budget and looking for an adventure. The prices of lodges are lower during this time, but the wildlife is more dispersed so it may be harder to spot. Keep in mind that it may rain during your trip, and you may also get stuck in the mud.
We prefer the shoulder season months of October and June for reduced rates and special offers. In some cases, you can get the same high-season experience for half the price! The wildlife is also fantastic during these months, and the parks are less crowded since they’re just outside of school holidays.
Each location has its own advantages and disadvantages depending on the time of year. For the best advice, contact one of our Tanzania experts.
