Combing a wildlife safari and Zanzibar honeymoon package
Want to know how a combined game viewing and Zanzibar honeymoon package feels like? A fully relaxing honeymoon might not offer you the exact experience that you wish for but sharing some of your moments with wildlife in the wilderness and in a natural setting brings in an ambiance and kills the sense of loneliness. Sometimes great unexpected occurrences happen in the wilderness; stuff you won’t see regularly, which will not only make you feel lucky but also give you long-lasting memories. The sense of a wilderness is a great addition to your honeymoon holiday. This is something you should definitely try out.
The best and most convenient wildlife viewing destinations are in Northern and Southern Tanzania. These national parks and protected areas include Serengeti National Park, Ngorongoro Crater, Lake Manyara National Park, Tarangire National Park, Ruaha National Park, Selous Game Reserve and Sadaani National Park among the rest. Of the two circuits, the north is highly recommended for exceptional experiences. This is where Serengeti National Park and Ngorongoro Crater; two of the best wildlife viewing destinations in the world are located. The south on the other end is very lonely and less visited compared to the north hence, a perfect place for honeymooners who need a strong sense of loneliness during their holiday.
Combining a wildlife safari and Zanzibar honeymoon package is a great plan. You get to tire out and burn out during your game drives while sleeping in the wilderness and after get to unwind and relax at the beautiful ocean beaches of Zanzibar. This is definitely an experience that you would die for. Let alone the ecstasy and diversity, it’s memorable as well. Actually is unique too. You get to share your honeymoons with animals and stand out from the people that share them around people. Sounds awesome right?

Best resorts in Zanzibar for honeymoons
Resorts and hotels somehow differ. As explained on Wikipedia, a resort is a self-contained commercial establishment that tries to provide most of a vacationer's wants, such as food, drink, lodging, sports, entertainment, and shopping, on the premises. This however, somehow differs from a hotel which whose sole aim is accommodation. Hotels have less luxury and facilities compared to a resort. Zanzibar has both hotels and resorts that are located within the towns or shores of Indian Ocean. The best resorts in Zanzibar for honeymoons may be budget, mid-range or luxury depending on the grade of facilities, location, comfort, privacy and more considerations.
As a traveler, if you intend to spend more time at your accommodation place than explore Zanzibar Island, a resort might be a good option for you. However, if you intend to spend minimal time at your accommodation facilities and instead opt to maximize your time on activities then a hotel might be perfect for you. The whole point rotates around how much time you wish to spend at your accommodation place. Some clients book their stay at resorts with beaches and spend their entire holiday there whereas others try to explore as much as they can during their visit.
Resorts and hotels highly differ in price. However, you shouldn’t be pulled to the assumption that expensive lodges are better than inexpensive lodges in all aspects. Truth is every lodge can have a price tag but it all comes down to service, actual facilities and location. Some inexpensive resorts and hotels turn out to offer very comfortable facilities to clients whereas some luxury lodges focus more in maintaining their brand than service delivery. We always choose the best resorts in Zanzibar for honeymoon vacations and discount them for travelers where possible. Accommodation is an extremely important aspect of travel and we highly emphasize it.

Please note that there are numerous options besides the mentioned above and it all depends on your location. You wouldn’t want to sleep so far away from your activity place and kill time on transfer to and from your accommodation facility.
Please note that not all Zanzibar honeymoon resorts have an ocean view or have beaches. There are some of the factors you have to highly consider. A resort should be luxury enough irrespective of the price range. Also, your room should be large enough and somehow luxurious. This matches a honeymoon perfectly. Small rooms are not fun to sleep in. A large room compensates for a lot and makes it easy for you to stay indoors for longer hours, something that is hard to achieve in small rooms.
So what is the exact price range that you should look at when choosing your Zanzibar honeymoon package resort? When it comes to honeymoons, price shouldn’t matter. A honeymoon is a once in a lifetime opportunity that should be celebrated with so much love, enjoyment and cherishable moments. Anything that adds an extra spark to your fun is highly recommended irrespective of its price. As you plan for your honeymoon, focus more on comfort, activities, convenience and uniqueness.

I would say watersports are one of the best activities you can take on in Zanzibar.

You could Parasail, Jet ski, Standup Paddle, Kitesurf, snorkel, dive, take on fly board tours and so on. These activities will give you great memories.

You can visit most of these destinations in a few days. When you visit, try to explore as much as you can. Zanzibar is a small archipelago and leaving some of the stones untouched would be a loss to you. It makes no point visiting a destination and later on realizing you need a second visit to explore some of the places you did not get a chance to go to.
The primary safari activity in Zanzibar is beaching hence, as you search for the best honeymoon destinations in Zanzibar, endeavor to ensure the destinations you are bound to visit have nice beaches nearby. This is a good compliment because at the end of the day you’ll want to relax and unwind at the beaches.

Choosing your Zanzibar honeymoon packages
When it comes to choosing your Zanzibar honeymoon packages, you should consider the fact that there is a lot to be done in Zanzibar. Just as mentioned above, so many travelers miss out on so many interesting activities because they assume Zanzibar is mainly for beach holidays. Zanzibar Island has a rich history as well especially when it comes to slavery. There are so many attractions to visit in respective towns and so may activities to engage it. When you visit Zanzibar, endeavor to engage in other activities too and not only beach holidays and you will see the true beauty and diversity of this archipelago.
Usually when it comes to activities, having a proper balance between sight-seeing tours, historic tours and beach getaways is highly recommended. For instance, you can visit some of the great attractions in stone town in the morning and spend your entire afternoon in leisure at one of the beaches or vice-versa. This way, you will have a proper balance of activities and will not deviate out of the primary goal of visiting Zanzibar; beaching and leisure. Another option could be spending an entire day carrying out sight-seeing and historic tours or primate trekking and spending the entirety of the next day at the beach relaxing. Either way works just fine.
Regarding the number of days required for your Zanzibar honeymoon packages, the days could be as many as you can afford. A honeymoon arrangement is different and isn’t solely focused on exploring places and taking on bucket-list activities but rather spending as much of your time in togetherness. A perfect honeymoon in Zanzibar should last for at least ten days. This makes it easy to balance to time you’ll spend carrying out activities and the time you spend at leisure. We already have some Zanzibar honeymoon packages that you may be interested to look at.
When to go on a Zanzibar honeymoon
The best time to schedule your Zanzibar honeymoon packages for is from June through September and December through February. During this time beaches are dry and the sun is hot, which is perfect for beach holidays. Spending time in Zanzibar during the rainy months can turn out to be a nightmare. The island is too cold during rainy months and considering the fact that it’s surrounded by one of the largest oceans in the world, you’ll hardly find yourself out during the coldest days. If you want to get the best out of Zanzibar, consider visiting during the hottest months. These months however, require advance booking as demand is usually high.
The peak season months, also known as the dry months; range from June through September and December through February respectively. These months are usually too busy and you’ll find a lot of tourists in the island. Because of this demand, so many accommodation facilities, facilities and services get sold out in advance. You ought to make your booking several months before your travel if you are to get all the availability. It becomes so hard to make last minute bookings during such months as you are unlikely to get availability at the best facilities or most selling facilities. Some activities actually get booked out too.
On the other hand, the low season months; rainy months are less crowdy when it comes to tourism. These months include March through May and October through November. This is a time when you can make last-minute bookings, get huge discounts off accommodation facilities and services or even bargain for lower activity rates. If you are a low budget, shoe-string traveler or backpacker, this might be your best time to visit Zanzibar and save a lot of money. With Africa’s unpredictable climate, you could actually have the best weather during your visit. Even when it rains, most times the sun comes out, dries the soil and life moves on normally.
Any discounts available?
Just like every other traveler, a price reduction means a lot. When a safari is pocket friendly, a tourist gets to save more money and probably stay longer and maximize on their time by carrying our more activities. Not every traveler can afford to travel luxury and some may need discounts to travel comfortable; especially typical budget and shoestring travelers. In Zanzibar, discounts come more in form of accommodation. Booking your safari through a travel agent will afford you net agency rates on accommodation which will help you save more. Booking direct might not get you the best rates as travel operators in the country are highly prioritized.
Regarding our Zanzibar safari discounts, group travelers and travelers who travel for longer days get to enjoy the biggest cut as it makes it easy for us to discount packages and breakeven. We have established solid working relationships with several of the top lodges in Zanzibar; which actually affords us their facilities at highly discounted rates. As for the case of honeymooners, the discounts are automatically applied to their Zanzibar honeymoon packages. It’s one way of us complementing them and congratulating them. In some scenarios, we even discount transportation costs and offer free activities as complementary to the trip at our own expense.
Our Zanzibar safari discounts are much more available during the low seasons of March through May and October through November. During such months, accommodation facilities and service providers get less bookings; which makes it easy for us to negotiate good rates or further renegotiate our rates or even ask for last-minute discounts. This however, isn’t the case with the peak season. It is so hard to offer huge discounts during such months unless the travel group is really large. These months include June through September and December through February.
Last minute Zanzibar safaris
A last minute Zanzibar honeymoon safari depends on so many things with the biggest being availability. In case there is availability, many tourists hope to get huge discounts on accommodation. This however, depends on the season you are traveling in. If you are traveling in the high or peak seasons, you are unlikely to get last-minute availability in the best facilities and even when you do, it’s unlikely that they’ll discount the accommodation price for you as demand is always high. As you may know, industries are different and here in Africa, not so many accommodation facilities have adopted the last minute offering marketing paradigm. For this reason, your last minute safaris may cost the same or slightly less but not as less as you may have expected.
So does this mean you won’t be able to book last-minute Zanzibar safaris? Well, we bring this to life as an agency. For years, we have negotiated for the best accommodation rates and fortunately enough, we have been awarded high discounts. These rates vary from season to season as the low season discounts are absolutely higher than the high and peak seasons’. As you may have noticed, our overall safari prices are very affordable compared to other quotes.
The degree of our discounts vary. Tourists that travel for longer days or in larger groups get to enjoy huge discounts. This is possible because it becomes much easier for us to further renegotiate our contract rates with accommodation facilities and service providers and get better rates that we actually offer you as a whole. Much as we do not recommend it, making a last-minute booking with us will definitely guarantee you very affordable rates. We might be unable to get you the best facilities but you can confide with us for good comfort throughout your last-minute Zanzibar safari.
