Description

After a flight to Dar es Salaam you can head straight for The Selous on a light charter flight. Your honeymoon begins with four blissful nights at Azura Selous in the heart of the Selous Game Reserve, where you will stay in one of their beautiful and private tented suites. The game in this area is superb, offering a lot of wildlife watching opportunities. Daily safari activities will include day and night game drives in an open sided 4x4. It is also possible to go on game walks, to get closer to nature and see the smaller fauna and flora, accompanied by your expert guide and scout.

In the heat of the day, relax by your private plunge pool between game activities and listen to hippos grunting in the rapids below. Spend your evenings eating delicious meals under the stars surrounded by gently flickering spirt lamps and the sounds of the bush.

After a flight via Dar es Salaam you arrive in Pemba, Mozambique. Here you will be met and flown by helicopter over azure blue waters dotted with islands encircled by white sand beaches. When you arrive you will be shown to your spacious and tranquil villa at Azura Quilalea; where you will be able to marvel at the stunning sea view. Enjoy romantic sundowners on the deck, and great snorkeling and diving on the lodge’s house reef. For those wishing for some real seclusion, we can organize a beach dinner under the stars, the beach lit only by lanterns and candles, the perfect end to a honeymoon.

When to go

Tanzania is a large country, with a varied climate. Generally, the long rains run from March to May - the temperature is warm and the humidity is high. June to October is the long dry season, and the short rains are in November and December, much lighter than the long rains. January and February are again dry (the short dry season) so this is another good time to visit. Amara Selous is closed for the months of April and May.

Mozambique offers sunshine, blue skies and temperatures averaging between 24°C and 27°C along the coast throughout most of the year, except during the rainy summer season from about December/January through to April when everything gets soggy and sticky, and temperatures exceed 30°C in some areas. The best time to visit is from May/June to November, during the cooler dry season.
