A slice of the Serengeti all to yourselves
The romantic wilderness of northern Tanzania is the perfect backdrop for the ultimate honeymoon safari
Want a honeymoon to really remember, with an adventurous twist and some of the most romantic experiences imaginable? Then read on, we have something rather special to share with you. This unique honeymoon will whisk you away to remote and secret corners of northern Tanzania, where you'll spend quality time together exploring the Serengeti on foot inside wilderness protection zones where few others are allowed. You'll be getting up close and personal with the landscape and its huge variety of inhabitants as you explore gentle rolling hills, vast grassland plains and hidden river valleys. Game drives on the floor of the iconic Ngorongoro Crater are also part of the adventure, and you'll love keeping an eye out for pools of hippos and vast swathes of pink flamingos, as well as the famous tree climbing lions in Lake Manyara National Park.
You'll be staying in a delightful mixture of comfortable bush camps and top notch stylish lodges, which offer the perfect honeymoon escape in this raw, untamed wilderness. Evenings in camp are all about sundowners on rocky granite outcrops (called kopjes), whilst watching as the sun sinks below the horizon, flooding the plains with reds, oranges and golds for a few precious moments. Then it's time for sumptuous candlelit dinners and campfire tales before turning in to sleep beneath the most incredible ceiling of stars, twinkling brightly far away from any sort of light pollution.
This Tanzania honeymoon is all about adventure and connecting with nature, without compromising on comfort or luxury. It's about bush breakfasts, new encounters and African sunsets. And it's one of the most romantic holidays you could ever imagine.

Day 4: Game drives and gardens
Take a morning game drive out of Lake Manyara National Park and head to the elegant and intimate Plantation Lodge, set in lush tropical gardens, surrounded by coffee plantations. It's one of the most romantic locations in Tanzania, and the perfect place to enjoy a lazy afternoon by the pool or on your own private balcony enjoying the stunning views.

The camp is situated next to an enormous boulder named Nasera Rock, with lightweight tents for a true bush adventure.
Days 7 - 8: Serengeti explorations
You're right in the heart of the migration here, and the next couple of days will be spent exploring this incredible part of Africa. You'll enjoy game drives and walking safaris in this remote area, and nights beneath the Serengeti sky. It doesn't get more romantic than this!
Day 9: Count the wildebeest!
Today you're off on a game drive to the Ndutu area where the bulk of the migration will be grazing on the plains, it's an incredible spectacle to witness. Overnight in Olakira Camp, a small luxury mobile camp with elegant en-suite tents and private verandas for game viewing right from your room.
Day 10: Final day of game viewing
Enjoy a final full day of game viewing in the Ndutu region before returning to camp for your last night in the Serengeti.
Day 11: Heading home...or to the beach
