Discover the Untouched Beauty of Tanzania

Enjoy lunch with the elephants

Classic under canvas safaris are getting sexier especially in Tanzania. A luxury safari in Tanzania transports you to a world of unforgettable beauty and romance. Arusha was ranked #8 in TripAdvisors 2022 trending destinations rankings and its easy to see why as the gateway to so many adventures seeing the famous flamingos in Lake Manyara and chimpanzees in the Mahale Mountains to exploring the world heritage Negorongoro Crater and Serengeti Plains. The Grumeti reserve is seeing an influx of new and revamped camps including andBeyond Grumeti Serengeti River Lodge. On our Tantalizing Tanzania safari, the majestic Lemala Kuria Hills Lodge is a perfect and secluded spot for exploring the untouched wilderness area of the Serengeti. Hidden within the Wogakuria Hills, you will have the chance to see the wildlife of Africa in their natural habitat whilst you sip on wine and dine on delicious African cuisine.


Explore an African Island

Guests on our African Romance itinerary can enjoy a unique exciting island hopping experience.

There’s nothing more romantic then pairing the beach and bush together and Africa’s islands are some of the most intimate and exciting. Along with the popularity of the Serengeti, Tanzania’s spice island Zanzibar has also made TripAdvisor’s 2022 trending destinations in the world list thanks to the island's rich history including the UNESCO World Heritage Stone Town old quarter; clear warm waters and amazing coral reefs rich with marine diversity. Our Enchanting East Africa visits both the Serengeti and Maasai mara and Zanzibar and you can add a Maasai blessing conducted by village elders to make it even more romantic.

Mozambique’s islands are also drawing attention including the launch of the first Banyan Tree resort’s new private island paradise Ilha Caldeira later this year. Another popular island is Azura Benguerra Island. One of our most romantic escapes is African Romance  which pairs Cape Town and a Kruger National Park safari with the intoxicating island. Friends will be envious of stories of island hopping, snorkeling and diving and relaxing on the shores of the Indian Ocean.  


South Africa’s Best Hotel

Soak in the incredible views at The Oyster Box Hotel

Elevate your travel experience to new heights with our signature South African Tapestry itinerary.

Front Row Seats for the Great Migration

Kenya, the birthplace of the modern safari, is one of the best places to see the Great Migration and year round game viewing. Our Under Kenyan Skies adventure takes you on an epic exploration of two distinct wildlife regions, including the staying at the iconic Angama Mara, which was featured in the beloved film " Out of Africa." Guests also have the opportunity to book a sleep-out at the NAY PALAD Bird Nest for those looking for a truly unique experience.

Laikipia, with its many pioneering conservancies such as Ol Pejeta, where you can see chimps, and Ol Jogi, is quickly becoming one of Kenya's top destinations to stay, alongside the well-known Maasai Mara and Amboseli National Park.


Be Beguiled in Botswana

Xigera Safari Lodge

For a truly intimate safari experience, Botswana is the gold standard. The government has ensured that camps stay small and our footprint in the natural habitat even smaller. The country has seen an influx in revamped lodges and new camps, so you’ll just want to pick what land and water safari suits your style. For lovers of innovative design and sustainable travel, pairing  Xigera Safari Lodge, is the ultimate way to see the Okavango Delta.  Duma Tau situated between two elephant highways in the Linyanti Wildlife Reserve is live changing and the 1940s style Jack’s Camp in the Makgadikgadi is a must. If you want to go further off the grid, then stay a few days at the Mashatu Ephorbia Villas.
