Southern Tanzania Luxury Escape Honeymoon

Inspirational safari & beach honeymoon to Tanzania

Embark on an African honeymoon that offers something truly adventurous and yet surprisingly luxurious, given its remoteness.  A safari that focuses on the southern regions of Tanzania concluding with a Robinson Crusoe beach getaway on Pemba Island. The fly-in safari takes place in two incredible parks, Ruaha National Park and the Nyerere National Park (previously Selous Game Reserve), also known as the Southern Circuit, an area famous for its wilderness and isolation and thus an ideal location for a more exclusive private safari. 

You will stay at sister camps Kigelia Ruaha and Sand Rivers Selous. Your safari activities at both camps will be tailored to suit you, whether its game drives, walking safaris, fishing or boating. Following your safari, you will have a night to take in the sights and sounds of Stonetown in Zanzibar, before moving onto the barefoot luxury boutique hotel Fundu Lagoon on Pemba Island, accessible only by boat. A consistent winner of the Best Marine Safari property in Africa and with some of the world's best scuba diving, your days at Fundu Lagoon can be as fun-filled or relaxing as you make them.
