Honeymoons in Tanzania

For the ultimate in romance and adventure, journey to Tanzania and discover all that this amazingly diverse East African country has to offer from outstanding scenery and inspiring landscapes to exciting wildlife and breathtaking beaches.

For a trip that will conjure memories-of-a-lifetime, let The Selous Safari Company ( play host. With two intimate camps in southern Tanzania and a charming beach retreat to choose from, arrive as guests and leave as friends, having enjoyed an unparalleled safari and beach experience.

On safari, accommodation is in luxuriously appointed en suite tents, which are built on raised platforms with thatched roofs. Each comes with a king-size bed and a private verandah, ideal for watching the sun rise or set and for wildlife viewing. The adventure starts here as the animal world, including giraffes, buffalo and elephant, saunters past the tent - by day or night!

The exclusive safari experience includes guided game drives in open-sided 4x4 Land Rovers and escorted bush walks. While at Selous Safari Camp, there is also a boat safari which weaves among rafts of hippo and crocodile. For the more adventurous, a satellite bush-camp can be arranged with a night or two spent getting close to nature in the bush and discovering an authentic 'old-style-safari' feel.

Each evening, guests meet for drinks and catch up on the day's wildlife viewing before enjoying a feast of delicious food. For honeymooners, destination dining is highly recommended with gourmet meals taken on the private verandah, by the swimming pool or, for a truly magical experience, under the starry sky around a fire as the sun sets - the perfect backdrop for romance.

Honeymooners will delight in the extra special attention with treats and surprises laid on at all three camps in order to ensure the utmost in romance. Accommodation options include:

The 13-tent Selous Safari Camp is the ideal base from which to explore the Selous Game Reserve. As one of the last great wilderness areas on the continent, the Selous Game Reserve has the highest concentration of African wildlife, countless birdlife and is home to over a million large animals and half of Tanzania's elephant population.

While Jongomero, the only camp situated in the remote central south-western sector of the Ruaha National Park, promises unmatched privacy and a great vantage point from which to take in the sights and sounds of the African bush.

Before or after game viewing, Ras Kutani, set amid a long stretch of unspoilt beach and a fresh water lagoon, is the ideal hideaway for those seeking solace, luxury and Tanzanian charm. Each of the nine en suite beach cottages boasts an eight-foot wide bed, large verandah with hammocks and breathtaking views of the Indian Ocean. Offering extra privacy, the four hillside suites also come with a plunge pool. Complimentary snorkelling equipment, kayaks and boogie boards are available for those that wish to venture from their hammock or beach bed.
