When planning a honeymoon, you're going to look at all the options around but if you're after something that's really special, a romantic luxury safari is the one to go for. Ker & Downey® Africa has recently launched a luxurious honeymoon safari in Tanzania and we find out what it entails, from beginning to end.

Honeymoons in Tanzania

Africa has long been a romanticised destination. Since the early writings of Ernest Hemingway and the timeless scenes from the Hollywood classic “Out of Africa”, couples have sought out Africa’s vast open spaces where age-old romance meets classic luxury.

Award-winning travel company Ker & Downey® Africa has a longstanding reputation for curating unforgettable expeditions throughout Africa, and their latest honeymoon safari in Tanzania LuxVenture® is no exception. The honeymoon will connect you to the people of Africa, give you lasting memories, but most importantly, allow you to leave a personal legacy in Africa.

Does Tanzania make a good honeymoon destination?

A country jam-packed with remote and exclusive wilderness destinations, Tanzania is the ideal base for a celebration of romance and adventure. Here, luxurious safari lodges in captivating locations provide guests with discreet service, bespoke safari activities and legendary wildlife encounters. On this trip, couples will be whisked away to the most romantic and secluded regions in the country, with the team at Ker & Downey® Africa lining up some once-in-a-lifetime experiences and exciting surprises along the way.

Safari honeymoon

The experience kicks off in Arusha, the gateway of the northern safari circuit in Tanzania. Here, guests will enjoy a scenic stay amidst a sea of evergreen coffee plantations at Arusha Coffee Lodge, located on the foothills of Mount Meru. During their stay the couple will embark on the first of many bucket list experiences of their unforgettable adventure together: an exhilarating ond hour light aircraft flight over the highest mountain in Africa – Mount Kilimanjaro.

Next, guests will journey on to the opulent Chem Chem Lodge, located between the wildlife-rich regions of Lake Manyara and the Tarangire National Park.

Between exciting safari activities and private candlelit dinners, the couple will have a chance to celebrate their love in a traditional Maasai ceremony. This intimate blessing takes place on the flamingo-filled shores of Lake Manyara and includes singing by a Maasai choir as well as traditional Maasai attire for the couple.

Then, it’s a short flight to the all-inclusive andBeyond Ngorongoro Crater Lodge, located on the rim of the largest intact caldera in the world, home to an immense concentration of wildlife. The uninterrupted views from the lodge are considered to be some of the best in Africa. During their stay, the lucky couple will not only have the opportunity to explore this breathtaking UNESCO World Heritage Site, they will also enjoy a unique romantic picnic lunch set up specially right on the Crater floor.

And finally...

Last, but not least, it’s a flight into the Serengeti to end the journey in style at the ultra-luxurious One Nature Nyaruswiga. Romance abounds at Nyaruswiga. From check-in to check-out, couples will be spoiled with opulent luxury accommodation, a private butler, gourmet meals, bush picnics and candlelit dinners under the stars. On the morning of day 9, the team at Ker & Downey® Africa arrange a sunrise safari hot air balloon flight over the Serengeti followed by a champagne breakfast in the bush.
