Gorillas, Masai Mara & Zanzibar Honeymoon Itinerary

Gorillas, Masai Mara & Zanzibar Honeymoon Itinerary

This 11-day honeymoon package is ideal for couples seeking adventure, as it includes activities such as swimming with whale sharks off the coast of Zanzibar, hot air ballooning over the Masai Mara grasslands in Kenya, and following wild mountain gorillas in Rwanda.

Hiking up Rwanda’s Virunga Volcanoes is the first stop on your honeymoon in East Africa. Along the way, you’ll get to see some of the world’s last mountain gorilla families. Walking distances range from two to eight hours, so you can pick a journey that suits your needs and interests.

The next exciting step is to board a small plane and soar over Kenya’s Masai Mara, where you may observe animals up close. When you go down there, you can look forward to seeing the Great Migration (seasonal) and the Big Five (leopard, lion, buffalo, rhino, and elephant) that inhabit Africa.

Zanzibar is the perfect place to finish your honeymoon. While there, you may explore Stone Town for cultural tours, go island hopping in the Indian Ocean, swim with whale sharks (seasonal availability), or just rest on the white sands while the turquoise waves crash on the shore.

Honeymoon to Kenya and Zanzibar Itinerary

Kenya & Zanzibar Itinerary

Honeymooners visiting Kenya and Zanzibar in East Africa can enjoy five-star lodgings, thrilling safari adventures, and a peaceful island paradise. See wild animals in the Masai Mara before kicking back on the ideal beach with a refreshing drink in hand.

Spectacular sunsets, huge herds of herbivores, and populations of big cats have made the Masai Mara reserve a top location for wildlife viewing on the African continent. Bush walks with Masaai warriors, wildlife drives in the morning and evening, and stargazing dinners are all part of the package.

The next stop is at Zanzibar’s breathtaking beaches, where you can kayak, surf, go on dolphin safaris, and explore vibrant coral reefs rich with marine life. You may also unwind in waterfront chalets in hidden areas of the island.

Kenya Safari And Beach Honeymoon Itinerary

Combining a safari in the Masai Mara with beach time in Kenya is another East African honeymoon suggestion. On this Kenya Safari and Beach Honeymoon, you’ll get to experience the Mara’s fantastic wildlife-watching safari activities before relaxing on Diani Beach in the east.

If your Masai Mara safari is scheduled at the correct time, you will have the opportunity to see the Great Migration, an old yearly cycle of zebra and wildebeest that travels from Tanzania’s Serengeti to Kenya’s Mara and back again.

Watersports including scuba diving, snorkeling, paddle boarding, and kitesurfing are just a few of the options available along the beautiful coastline of Diani Beach. Other activities include trekking through forests and waterfalls, cultural tours with the Digo people, and more. Feel like a million bucks after all that excitement? Get a massage on the beach.

Dream Come True: A Once-in-a-Lifetime African Honeymoon Safari in Kenya!

Those who would rather spend their honeymoon on a safari than a beach would love this East African vacation. Before making your way to the Masai Mara, your honeymoon in Kenya will start in the northern region of Samburu, where you may go animal watching in Samburu National Park and the Kalama Conservancy.

On game drives, you can see the “Samburu Five”—a Grevy’s zebra, reticulated giraffe, beisa oryx, gerenuk, and Somali ostrich—and learn about the vibrant Samburu culture. You can also go on exciting walking safaris with Samburu guides.

After that, make your way to the world-renowned Masai Mara grasslands to see the Great Migration and all five of Africa’s most famous animals up close and personal on guided bush walks, in hot air balloons, and by road. See the Mara at its most vibrant after dark by going on a night game drive in the hopes of seeing some of its nocturnal inhabitants.

Observe primates in the Great Rift Valley’s thick forest, track hundreds of elephant herds in Tarangire, witness the Great Migration and Africa’s Big Five in the Serengeti, and finally, venture into the wildlife-rich Ngorongoro Crater, a natural wonder protected by UNESCO.

You will travel east to Zanzibar and the islets surrounding it after seeing the sights in northern Tanzania. On Mafia Island, you can see whale sharks in their migration and marvel at the beautiful coral gardens; on peaceful Pemba, you can find a verdant haven surrounded by blue waters.

Remote Tanzania Safari and Beach Honeymoon Itinerary

Discover off-the-beaten-path East African honeymoon spots like secluded beach islands and remote safari lodges on this unique itinerary.

You can go on boat safaris, game drives, or bush walks in the Selous and maybe even see a leopard or an African wild dog, two of the most secretive and endangered animals in the world.

The massive lion prides of Ruaha await your arrival; these predators are notorious for their attacks on buffalo, giraffes, hippos, and elephants. With just about 5% of Tanzania’s tourists visiting Ruaha National Park—the second most important park in the country after the Serengeti—visitors can experience a genuine African getaway.

As the site of the largest marine protected area in the Indian Ocean, Tranquil Mafia Island is well-known around the world as an important location for marine biodiversity. Explore thriving coral habitats and see a plethora of marine species, including manta rays, dolphins, gigantic whale sharks, clownfish, and more.
