The sheer romance of a safari or remote Zanzibar tropical island escape makes East Africa the perfect choice for a honeymoon or special holiday for two. Asilia will give you a truly authentic and personal experience, and you will feel as though you have the entire place to yourself.
Our camp managers and staff pride themselves on going the extra mile with special touches and surprises that will add even more romance to your holiday, like private, lantern-lit bush dinners for two in gorgeous, secluded settings. We don’t want to give away too many of their secrets here, but know that you’ll be in the best and most thoughtful hands.
Bush and Beach Combination
For the best of all possible worlds, choose a romantic Bush & Beach package. For example, choose award-winning Sayari Camp in Tanzania for an unbeatable safari experience and then follow it up with some time at Matemwe Retreat, a tropical beach paradise on Zanzibar Island, to experience another facet of beautiful East Africa.
Sayari is the pick of the Serengeti. It is renowned for extraordinary wildlife sightings and supreme comfort. Set on the unspoilt plains of the Northern Serengeti, close to the famous Lamai Wedge, Sayari gives you easy access to the Mara River for astounding viewing of the Great Migration as well close-up encounters with incredible wildlife, from lion, cheetah and antelope roaming the plains to elephant and rhino.
Once you’ve experienced the world’s finest game viewing, relax in your elegant honeymoon suite at camp or enjoy the dramatic views over the northern plains from the rim-flow swimming pool. Intimate, contemporary and elegant, it is no surprise that Sayari Camp is regularly voted one of the top safari escapes on the planet. When it is time to say goodbye to the bush, jet off to Matemwe for some tropical beach bliss on Zanzibar.
Zanzibar is the perfect destination for post-safari relaxation and rest. Matemwe Retreat offers total privacy and personalised service in an exclusive-use villa complete with private plunge pool on the spacious roof terrace. After long, lazy beach days, enjoy romantic sundowners at home just metres from the clear tropical waters. In the evening, candle-lit dinners under the stars cooked by your private chef offer a new level of romance.
