Honeymoon in Tanzania

Tanzania honeymoons: the best camps & lodges

To combine a classic safari with a romantic beach break, a Tanzania honeymoon is the perfect choice. Enjoy thrilling wildlife experiences whilst staying at luxurious camps in the heart of the bush; then continue with a few nights at a peaceful and secluded beach retreat. Many places have special 'honeymoon offers', and with personal services and thoughts, they try very hard to make their honeymooners happy!

Boasting both excellent wildlife parks and tropical beaches - a honeymoon to Tanzania at almost any time of year promises good weather somewhere in the country. For the best game viewing, visit between June and October, which is Tanzania's long dry season. The weather is generally good during January and February, although it can get a little humid, but camps and resorts will be much quieter during this time, perfect for a peaceful and exclusive Tanzania honeymoon.
