Kenya and Tanzania Luxury Safari and Beach Honeymoon

Inspirational safari & beach honeymoon to Kenya and Tanzania

This dream safari and beach vacation takes in East Africa's natural wonders, the Maasai Mara, the Serengeti and the Ngorongoro Crater and combines that safari experience with a relaxing island retreat in the Indian Ocean. You will stay in andBeyond properties which offer intimate game viewing, luxurious, romantic accommodation, and high-quality service throughout.

The safari starts at the elegant Bateleur Camp in the Maasai Mara, Kenya. Here, amidst the reserve's astounding year-round concentration of animals, including the seasonal Great Wildebeest Migration, you can have an unsurpassed wildlife experience. You can almost exclusively explore this area on a game drive or on foot, enjoying access to pristine outdoor dining locations. From here fly directly into the western corridor of Tanzania's Serengeti National Park for a stay at the far-flung Grumeti Serengeti River Lodge. Twice-daily game drives from the lodge often encounter large lion prides and clans of hyena and big herds of resident plains game.

Then to the rim of Ngorongoro's ancient caldera and to the sumptuous and utterly unique Ngorongoro Crater Lodge. Aside from the thrilling game drives into the crater, expect dramatic interiors, views that will blow you away and banquets on the crater floor. Following your safari, you will head to the incredible Mnemba Island, truly one of, if not the most impressive, beach property in Africa. Discover sheer, unpretentious paradise on this exclusive island staying in a rustically chic beachside banda.
