Escaping to the northern part of Zanzibar Island for a blissful beach holiday with stays in a hidden getaway that is close enough from the Indian Ocean – so close that you can relax in a hammock on your private sun deck and feel as though you are on the beach.

It is the adventurous pleasure that gives you maximum special time together to discover Africa’s hidden gems and seeing these creatures in the wild is an experience that is beyond compare. The safari experience creates a thrilling jolt while connecting with nature, with new cultures and sharing smiles of amazement, such experiences are not always common but in Africa, they are as regular as the rising Serengeti sun. 

Africa’s famously spectacular sunsets set the scene for romance: enjoy sundowner experiences in a secluded ideal wilderness location. Watch the sun dip below the horizon with wine in hand and light snacks in a classic safari style. Watch the surreal landscape glow golden as the sun dips over the horizon. Back at the tented camp you can also enjoy sundowner cocktails around the central campfire or at the privacy of your tented room’s verandah.

Don’t miss the chance to take a hot-air balloon safari to float above it all, sailing in silence over the vast, game-rich plains and enjoy the most beautiful sunrise of your lives. Drifting above the game-packed plains of the Serengeti for a bird’s eye view of the heavenly landscape is the highlight of a romantic safari. It is an effortless feeling usually reserved for dreams where you lookout over the stunning landscape, from the height, in the calming silence of the African dawn, and beautiful landscape, wildlife foraging for foliage, and Big Cats seeking their prey, it’s hard to imagine it getting any better. Follow this with a Champagne breakfast in the heart of the bush for unbeatable celebration and excitement.

The transparent turquoise waters edged with palm-fringed white sand beaches, glorious sunshine and vibrant culture of Zanzibar give you the tropical island holiday of your dreams. Fall asleep and wake up to the sounds and sights of the Indian Ocean right on your honeymoon suite doorstep. The secluded cottage, “Mahaba“ literally, ‘romance’ Honeymoon Suite is decorated in local style with wooden floors and walls lined with traditional woven palm fronds. The design is open-plan, with a lounge-dining area, kitchenette, and bathroom on the ground floor, as well as an airy sleeping area with a comfortable double and upstairs. The spacious verandah overlooking the ocean has its own sun bed and couples have their own private access to the beach.
