Start your adventure in style

This honeymoon will take you from sparkling alkaline lake to prehistoric crater, on to world-renowned savannah and finally to stunning white beaches and azure waters.  Start off married life with an exciting safari, before spending a few days simply soaking up the sun, relaxing and enjoying married life together.

After overnight in the stunning countryside of Arusha, in the shadow of Mount Meru, you will start your safari in earnest with a trip to the stunning Lake Manyara.  You will marvel at the sheer natural beauty of this corner of the world, as you spot buffalo, elephant, giraffe and hippo.  If you’re fortunate enough, you may even spot a famous Manyara lion, renowned for its unique tree-climbing habits!

You will then continue on to the Serengeti.  En route you will enjoy a picnic lunch on a scenic kopje (rock outcropping) and visit the Olduvai Museum (dedicated to world-famous anthropologists Louis and Mary Leakey).  As you enter the park itself, you will take a game drive, spotting anything from lionesses gathering to hunt, to baboons gambolling and fighting, or wildebeest churning clouds of dust into the air with their sporadic, ungainly movement.

Your time spent at the Ngorongoro Crater will be truly magical and awe-inspiring.  This ancient caldera was formed from a collapsed volcano, which left in its wake a vast crater with 2000 foot high walls.  This acts as a naturally sanctuary for a high animal population, including lions, elephants, rhino, zebras, flamingos, hippos, jackals, various antelopes and a whole host of bird species.  With a touch of luck, you might even spot the “Big Five” on just one game drive.

After your safari adventure, you will relish your time spent relaxing on the beaches of Zanzibar.  You will soak up the sun, cool down in the shade, drink a cold beer or refreshing juice, take a dip in the pool, wade out into the ocean, try your hand at a water sport and simply enjoy each other’s company on this exotic island.
