About weddings & honeymoon

If you’ve ever dreamt of being cast away on a hidden paradise with the one you love this is an ideal setting for you.  The traditional Maasai wedding experience is great for rehearsal dinner or bridal shower too. After the beautiful Maasai wedding ceremony and dinner with lots of singing and dancing with Maasai warriors the newlyweds dine with candlelight under the African stars. The newlyweds begin their wedded days with breakfast served in the midst of golden savannah after watching the sunrise on this magical location. 

 

Welcome to experience our breathtaking romantic getaway in Tanzania. We arrange private and secluded traditional Maasai wedding ceremonies and glamping honeymoons in the Ngorongoro Conservation Area with dancing and singing with the Maasai warriors, ritual blessing, romantic candle night dinners under the African stars, and private safari game drives and bush walks, and romantic lunch picnics with Champagne. You don’t need to be planning a honeymoon, you can also have a romantic getaway. All our stays are sustainable and we give back to the Maasai community. 

On the following days, the newlyweds and guests can enjoy private game drives and bush walks in both in Ngorongoro Crater or Serengeti national park with picnic lunch served with Champagne. Ecological accommodation is in comfortable tents with beds and amazing views. As this place is entirely in wild nature, there is no electricity, which makes it very romantic with candlelights and hanging lanterns.  

Ngorongoro Crater

The world’s largest intact caldera from a long extinct volcano, Ngorongoro is home to about 26 000 wild creatures who live within the safety of the caldera walls. The Maasai are the indigenous peoples whose traditional lands are Ngorongoro including the Crater where they still herd their cows. In the Ngorongoro Crater, it's possible to see elephants, black rhinoceroses, leopards, buffalo, zebras, warthogs, gnu (wildebeests), Grant’s and Thomson’s gazelles, and the densest population of lions in the world. You will experience this amazing Crater with the Maasai who are the best guides to tell you about this unique area and wild game.
