If you have a favorite location on Zanzibar Island – or the mainland of Tanzania – where you would like to get married, please contact us and we will investigate the possibilities.


Once married in this beautiful country, there are of course plenty of options for a great safari or a beach holiday afterwards.

Just like your wedding day, we also organize your honeymoon completely tailor-made. Do you opt for an adventurous safari in the north or south of Tanzania or do you continue to enjoy the sea, sun and the beach on Zanzibar? Active or relaxed, it is all possible!
