An African honeymoon is unlike any other. From romantic hot-air balloon rides over the Savannah, adventurous game drives through wilderness areas, sandy white beaches and tropical waters, there is something for everyone to enjoy.

You’ll have time to explore the northern Serengeti and all its wonders for three days before hopping on a plane and jetting off to beautiful Zanzibar to end off your honeymoon. This seven-day itinerary combines the elegance of Sayari Camp coupled with an exclusive, private and enchanting experience on the island of Zanzibar at our Matemwe Retreat.

Itinerary Details

Fly to the Serengeti, Tanzania

Begin your African honeymoon adventure with a flight to Kogatende Airstrip where a guide will collect you for a game drive en route to Sayari, in the northern Serengeti region. Once at Sayari, lunch will be served with an opportunity to relax and settle in. In the afternoon, you have the option of either relaxing in camp or heading out for a game drive in an open safari vehicle. Arriving back in camp at sunset, there’s a chance to freshen up before enjoying your first Sayari dinner experience followed by the opportunity to enjoy a drink around a proper safari campfire.

Depending on your preference, there are a couple of options with regard to how your day is structured. One option is to break camp early and head out with a picnic breakfast on a morning game drive, returning to camp in time for lunch. In the afternoon you can do another game drive or opt to relax by the pool with a good book. Alternatively, you can eat breakfast in camp and head out on your game drive with a picnic lunch, returning in the mid-afternoon. Private vehicle hire is an optional extra which further increases the flexibility afforded to you but must be booked in advance.

You’ll spend three days with us at Sayari before hopping on a plane and making your way to the tropical paradise that is Zanzibar for the remainder of your honeymoon.
