Where to go in Tanzania on your honeymoon safari

When it comes to safari destinations, Tanzania divides into two areas – the famous ‘Northern Circuit and the off-the-beaten-track south.

Within the North, our top picks for honeymooners are…

The Ngorongoro Crater – The views from the Crater rim are sure to have you gasping with awe. Well worth a visit for the scenic vistas alone, the Crater is also home to some incredible big game, including big tusker elephants, large feelings of pride of lions, and herds of buffalo that often stand up to the big cats.

The Serengeti – From witnessing the Great Migration to catching sight of the big cats that follow the herds, you and your partner will be mesmerized by this national park every time you set off on a traditional game drive!

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 being 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 of course some wonderful wildlife. This reserve is perfect for a quiet and romantic safari!
