Tanzania is one of the most magical countries you will ever visit. When you think of Africa, most people’s minds go to mad expense, and granted, it is not the cheapest continent to visit; but for a honeymoon or a trip of a lifetime, it doesn’t get much better than this.

If you are planning your honeymoon or simply a holiday of a lifetime or you’ve come to the right place – here we have compiled some of the most wondrous places in Tanzania today…

The Serengeti’s Great Wildebeest Migration
Rightly heralded as the greatest natural event on the planet, this spectacular event sees 2 million wildebeest pass through the Serengeti plains in constant search for green pastures. The wildebeest’s harrowing journey offers a once in a lifetime wildlife viewing opportunity and as such is the focus of many a dramatic Attenborough-esque nature documentary…. And you can see why!
The Ngorongoro Crater
The largest volcanic caldera on earth, the Ngorongoro Crater is truly mesmerizing to behold. Familiar scenes in this part of the country are lions lazing on the crater floor, with the backdrop of the immense crater rim penetrating the sky-line. The Ngorongoro Crater is truly one of a kind, and you will not get such a unique and exceptionally good wildlife viewing experience anywhere else in the world.

Fly camping in the Selous
For the adventurous out there, fly camping in the Selous is the pinnacle of safari romance & authenticity. Lazing under the stars with the African bush sounds stirring all around; you feel completely immersed in nature yet within the safe covering of a mosquito net and guards on the watch throughout the night. Fly-camping is the ultimate romantic wilderness experience and I think this photo probably speaks for itself…
Mnemba Island is the ultimate beach hideaway. The whole island is privately owned by the reputable luxury company &beyond and offers one of the most exclusive Indian Ocean beach experiences in the world. For dreams of turquoise waters and powder white sand, Mnemba is unparalleled. For a Tanzania Honeymoon, you really can’t top it.
