Trip itinerary

DAY 1: Karibu Tanzania!

The first day of your Honeymoon!

Upon walking out of Kilimanjaro Airport, you’ll be embraced by the friendly, ‘hakuna matata’ vibes of Tanzania.

Just outside, your personal driver will be waiting for you. He will drive you to one of the most unique lodges in Tanzania, where you’ll recieve a warm, traditional welcome.

The Lodge is a real dive into Tanzania’s authentic culture, while still being able to enjoy a welcome cocktail and swim at the pool as the sun sets over the african savannah. A perfect first day…

DAY 2: A day with the Maasai

Like a Local!

Today is our first full day in Tanzania. It feels like waking up in a different world as the sun rises amidst of the most colorful and famous tribes of Tanzania.

Today we will experience the daily life of a maasai and learn about what it means to be a ‘maasai’.

The day starts in traditional maasai clothing, beginning with daily activities like milking the cows in one of the maasai settlements or have a walking safari where you’ll learn the ways of the Maasai and maybe come close to wild animals!

After lunch, men & woman will be seperated. As the maasai ways are different from ours. Men will collect healing plants and women look for fire wood, repair maasai houses.

On festive days, a goat may be slaughtered and prepared on the fire place for a special goat-fire celebration and traditional maasai dancing.

DAY 3: Safari Enduimet WMA

A walking safari in Enduimet

Today we will take a step back in time. We will have safari like the first pioneers that set foot upon these lands. We’ll be walking between wild animals on foot.

The safari is in a secret, off the beaten track national park: Enduimet WMA. A hidden jewel in the most northern part of Tanzania, West-Kilimanjaro. Few visitors come to this place and wildlife thrives here beneath the impressive sight of Mt. Kilimanjaro, Africa’s highest mountain.

If you want to explore Tanzania and would like to have a more adventurous experience, visit places fewer other people have visited, then this is the place.

DAY 4: A day to relax & enjoy some Tanzanian hospitality

Relaxing, Pool & Cocktails

Today is a free day. Use this day to relax and spend some quality time together. Sleep in, enjoy a ‘not so guilty morning-cocktail’ and relax at the pool under the bright sun.

Get to know the worldfamous Tanzanian hospitality an be pampered all day long.

In the evening you can have a romantic dinner together and enjoy the green, peacefull surroundings of Arusha.

DAY 5: Lake Manyara National Park

A Dive in the Hippo Pool

This day we’ll get aboard the safari car and visit Lake Manyara. One of the smaller national parks of Tanzania. It’s named after the huge lake take covers most of the area. Nonetheless, Lake Manyara is one of the parks with the biggest variety of landscapes.

You can find yourself in thick woodlands where elephants feast and hunters are hidden, muddy pools filled with Hippo’s, mysterious jungle area’s where monkeys rule, desert-like areas where giraffes pass through and the edge of the lake, where thousands of flamingo’s have their summer homes.

Of course not to forget about the impressive 400 meters deep Rift Valley Escapment. A tear in the earth that stretches out for thousands of Kilometers across East-Africa. At the end of the Safari we’ll drive to the lodge where you can enjoy a stunning sunset from the pool, while enjoying a cocktail. Truly an amazing place. 

 

Optional Activities
DAY 6: Lake Manyara - Serengeti National Park

Lion's Territory!

We’ll get up in the early morning to have breakfast and start our safari. After a short drive from our camping location we will enter the Ngorongoro Conservation Area. We’ll pass trough here, past the Ngorongoro Crater and off to the Serengeti National Park.

Serengeti National Park is one of the largest parks and has a variety of landscapes, but is most famous for its great plains. Here the hunters, such as lion, cheetas (and many many other animals) thrive.

At the end of the day you can watch the sunset from the great plains of the serengeti, while being surrounded by the sounds of the wild and protected by the flames of the campfire that keeps you warm. Enjoying a sunset at the campfire is a must-have-done experience in the Serengeti. 

DAY 7: Full day & night Serengeti National Park

The Great Plains of the Serengeti

A full day in Serengeti usually starts with a really early morning safari, just after sunrise. During this time the animals are the most active and you’ll have the biggest chance of seeing some real National GeoGraphic / Animal Planet action! Here you will likely come eye to eye with the carnivors that rule these plains. Lions, cheetahs, leopards, hyena’s and many more.

After the sunrise safari we’ll head back to camp to have a nice breakfast. The rest of the day we can explore Serengeti, and at the right time of year find ourselves amidst of the great migration. The undisputed highlight of a safari experience.

You can choose fly over Serengeti’s impressive plains and seeing the wildlife from a different perspective by doing a romantic balloon safari with champagne breakfast. This early morning experience will make your honeymoon even more memorable. 

Optional Activities
DAY 8: Ngorongoro Crater

Into the Crater (spot the Big 5)

After an early breakfast we will drive towards a steep and narrow road that takes you into the legendary Ngorongoro crater. A bumpy, but adventureous road! The slopes are forested, but soon the landscape changes to savannah.

Down in the crater, you’ll be able to spot many animals from a distance. Here is your best chance to spot all the members of the Big 5 – lion, elephant, buffalo, rhino and if you’re lucky even the leopard. Also the chances of seeing the endangered Rhino is the highest here! After the morning gamedrive we’ll have a picknick-lunch at a hippo-filled lake. After the lunch we’ll slowly drive back to the edge of the crater and stop whenever we pass an interesting sight!

Once we’ve reached the edge, somewhere in the early afternoon, we’ll drive on to the next lodge. Here you can enjoy dinner together, swim at the pool, watch the sun-set from your room’s balcony and fall asleep at your own private indoor fireplace…

DAY 9: Enjoy the views & watch the sunset from the pool!

Another day to relax

Today is another, well deserved relax day. So take it easy. Sitting in a car can actually be quite exhausting.

Sleep in, enjoy being served & float around in the pool  with an amazing view. After all, Tanzania is one of the most unique & romantic places in the world. So sometimes it’s important to stand still and enjoy the moment. Your lodge is perfect for it.

If you feel like doing something, you could also use this day to experience a bit more of Tanzania by doing an extra activity. Do a cultural mountainbike tour in Mto wa Mbu, enjoy a cooking class from the local mamma’s, visit a secret waterfall or taste some local banana beers!

Let us know! Everything can be arranged.

DAY 10: Tarangire National Park

In elephant's footsteps!

Today we will visit Tarangire National Park, named after the Tarangire river that crosses the national park.

Tarangire is famous for its big herds of elephants and huge, ancient baobab trees. The elephants that live here are bigger and stronger than in any other national park due to the many foodsources. You’ll be sure to see quite a few, along with many other animals that live here.

Other animals that can be found in Tarangire are lion, leopard, cheetah (rarely), caracal, giraffe, waterbuck, dik dik, impala, eland, Grant’s gazelle, baboons, monkeys & more!

DAY 11-15: The tropical island of Zanzibar!

A romantic stay on the Island

Today we will pack our bags and take a short flight of about one hour to Zanzibar. One of the most beautiful, romantic islands in the world. The whitest beaches surrounded by flourishing oceanlife in Azure blue waters. A great place to use that ‘i’m on holiday’ excuse when deciding on your morning cocktail.

Zanzibar is a place that suits everyone’s needs. There’s a place to party, filled with fellow travelers, local bars, beach & boat parties and a place to enjoy some peace and quiet, surrounded by empty beaches & palmtrees, with only the sounds of the ocean.

The azure blue waters around the island are not only perfectly suitable for any kind of activity like scuba-diving, snorkeling, fishing, kiteboarding, (sunset)boattrips, sandbank and island hopping, but also provide the island with some of the freshest seafood you can find. Even expensive seafood like lobster is just a daily snack on a budget on zanzibar.
