Tanzania’s incredible safari opportunities and swathes of beautiful beaches make for this prefect combination of rest, adventure and relaxation. Original Travel’s honeymoon planners have their ear to the groung and have put together this blog of the the most exclusive lodges and beach properties that will be sure to earn you ultimate bragging rights.


Rest at Chem Chem Lodge

We’re not sure whether it’s the delicious food, romantic camp fire, resident giraffes or the relaxing spa that we love more about Chem Chem. After a stressful few weeks of wedmin it feels like Chem Chem’s tranquil ambience has been waiting for you with open arms.  Rest and recuperate in the cool and stylish lodge, eat dinner under the stars and explore the wilderness on a walking safari.

Adventure at Lamai Serengeti Lodge

Now you have regained your energy you will no doubt be itching to crank up the honeymoon activities, albeit with those little luxuries not too far from hand. Adventuring to the (relative) unknown feels incredibly romantic and the Northern Serengeti is home to the great wildebeest migration. The best time to go is between July and October when the Migration crosses the Mara river. Whether you are charging around in a jeep or spotting elephants from your room, what’s more romantic than sharing your first sighting of a lion in the wild? Lamai Serengeti is positioned high up on the rocks and every tent has immaculate views out to the Mara River Valley.

Relax at Mnemba Island

End your trip with a ‘luxury crescendo’ and save the most lavish accommodation until last. You’ll feel as though your first adventure as husband and wife has zipped past and now it’s time to savour the moment. A short flight to Zanzibar and transfer (speedboat included) will take you to Mnemba Island: a desert island paradise with all the trimmings but you won’t ever need to lift a finger for yourself. The island sleeps just 20 guests and the only buildings on the island are those of the lodge. In the afternoon you can catch sight of giant turtles drifting through the lagoons and dive amongst the coral. Mnemba’s unpretentious and low key version of luxury has developed a cult following from celebrities such as Naomi Campbell and Bill Gates – surely a luxury stamp of approval?
