12 Days Romantic Honeymoon Package
These 12 days package which combines our Big Five Safari and our tropical beach
Island Bliss is beautifully crafted for newly-wed couples in search of a pure romantic
getaway. This tour will take you to Tarangire and Lake Manyara National Parks. The
twin wonders of the Serengeti and Ngorongoro will captivate and enthrall thereby leaving the two of you alone; amongst nature’s greatest shows. After the action filled
wildlife safari an idyllic white sand splendor will gently lull you into hibernation at the
Zanzibar Island and thus unveil the ultimate luxuriant beach getaway. Throughout it
all, you will experience utter privacy and tranquil romance. This tour can also be
adjusted to meet every need and is available throughout the year.
Day 1: Arrival – Transfer to Arusha
On arrival at Kilimanjaro International Airport you will clear with the customs and
Immigration before meeting our representative for a brief on what lies ahead.
Thereafter, transfer to Arusha Serena Hotel, Resort & Spa or similar for dinner and
overnight. Depending on your arrival time, you will participate in extra activities such as canoeing, hiking and walks, cultural tours and coffee farm tours. You will have a private candlelight five-course dining with a complementary sparkling wine of your choice.
Accommodation: Arusha Serena Hotel, Resort & Spa or similar
Day 2: Arusha – Tarangire National Park
After early breakfast, you depart the lodge and drive to Tarangire National Park to arrive in mid-morning to start your game drive. Enjoy your picnic lunch overlooking the Tarangire River past noon hour before enjoying your afternoon game drive. Among
humdresds of Baobab trees that mark the landscape, you will enjoy Tanzania’s largest
concentration of elephants too. In addition to elephants, leopards, ostriches, lions,
warthogs, zebras and cheetahs are common sightings in Tarangire. If you are fortunate,
you may encounter the much-endangered wild dog. As this park is slightly off the main
safari route, majority of travelers skip this park out in favor of the nearer ones thereby
leaving major parts of Tarangire untouched. After a full day game viewing, drive to
Tarangire Kuro Treetops Lodge or similar for a private bush dinner and overnight. This
small and intimate hidden gem is nestled under the shade of acacia trees overlooking a
pretty dry riverbed bordered by huge and dramatic granite boulders.
Accommodation: Tarangire Kuro Treetops Lodge or similar
Day 3: Lake Manyara National Park
After breakfast drive to Mto wa Mbu town for a guided village walk. The walk will give you an opportunity to interact with the local people, visit local homes, a taste of traditional beer, banana and rice farms, etc. For lunch, you could try a home cooked lunch or the local skewers of goat meat, the well-known Nyama Choma. You will then continue to Lake Manyara for game viewing. Lake Manyara provides a perfect introduction to Tanzania’s birdlife. More than 400 species have been recorded, and even a first-time visitor to Africa might reasonably expect to observe 100 of these in one day. Inland of the floodplain, a narrow belt of acacia woodland is the favored haunt of Manyara’s legendary tree-climbing lions and impressively tusked elephants.
Overnight will be at Lake Manyara Kilimamoja Lodge or similar, a towering terracotta escarpment with panoramic views over the glittering alkaline waters of Lake Manyara.
Extra services provided will include honeymoon surprises.
Accommodation: Lake Manyara Kilimamoja Lodge or similar
Day 4: Ngorongoro
After breakfast, you will depart the lodge with picnic lunch and drive to Ngorongoro
crater for game viewing. You will spend the day at the floor on the crater (the 8th wonder 11of the world) exploring its rich flora and fauna. This is the best place to encounter the endangered black rhino and flamingos in Lake Magadi. Other animals include Thomson’s and Grant’s gazelles, warthogs, hippos, zebras, waterbucks, hyenas, jackals and if lucky enough, lions will be sleeping by your vehicle for shade.
In the evening, you will ascend the crater and drive to Ngorongoro O’ldeani Mountain Lodge or similar for dinner and overnight. This lodge clings to the rim of the magnificent Ngorongoro Crater, the largest volcanic crater on earth. Long and low, the lodge is built from local river stone and camouflaged with indigenous vines. This is designed to blend completely with the landscape and is entirely invisible from the floor of the crater 600 meters below.
Accommodation: Ngorongoro O’ldeani Mountain Lodge or similar
Day 5: Ngorongoro – Serengeti
Head towards the Serengeti National Park after breakfast, leaving the highlands behind
as you descend into the heart of wild Africa – the Serengeti National Park – with its
endless plains, rolling into the distance as far as the eye can see. Go further into the
central area which boasts of a rich wildlife habitat; featuring the Seronera River that
provides a valuable water source to this area thereby attracting most species in the
Serengeti. Enjoy game drive end-route to the lodge before arriving in time for lunch at
Sametu Camp followed by an afternoon game drive to be crowned off by sundowner at
a vantage point. Located on the Eastern edge of the Seronera Valley, far away from the
noise and disturbance of the well-travelled tourist circus and near the famous Barafu
Kopjes, Sametu Camp boasts of a quiet seclusion, panoramic views of the wide-open
Savannah plains and the Ngarenanyuki River meandering along the edge of the camp. It is common to see wildlife visiting the spring-fed watering hole, including the neighboring Sametu pride.
Accommodation: Sametu Camp or similar.
Day 6: Full Day in Serengeti with Hot Air Balloon
At 5:00 am, Serengeti Balloon Safaris will collect you from Sametu Camp in Central
Serengeti and transfer you by a Land rover/Landcruiser to their launch site. Here you will meet your pilot, receive a briefing and watch the inflation of your balloon. At dawn we take off, rising as the sun rises and floating in whichever direction the winds of the morning take us. Your pilot can precisely control the altitude of the balloon: sometimes flying at treetop height, sometimes lower, offering a unique perspective and great photographic opportunities of the wildlife below. At other times our pilot may ascend to 1,000 ft or more, to see the enormity and wonderful panorama of the Serengeti. From time to time the pilot must put more heat into the balloon with the powerful whisper burners. In between these burns, there is silence apart from the natural sounds below.
The flight is for about one hour, depending on conditions, and eventually we must land.
We celebrate in the traditional manner with champagne (well, an excellent sparkling
12wine) before sitting down to a full English breakfast prepared and served in the bush in “Out of Africa” style with bone china, linen table cloth, Sheffield cutlery etc.
After breakfast you receive your Serengeti Balloon certificate and later meet up with your safari guide ready to continue your day’s activities. Later in the evening, you will return to the lodge for a well-deserved hot shower followed by an exclusive bush dinner in total wilderness.
Accommodation: Sametu Camp or similar
Day 7: Serengeti – Zanzibar

Accommodation: Z Hotel or similar
