Tanzania is a country of magic and adventure. One of the foremost safari destinations throughout the African continent, this is where you come if you want to see wildebeest stampede the plains, hippos traverse muddy waterways and chimpanzees swinging their way from one treetop to the next. It’s a place of boat safaris and pre-dawn game drives. But also of sandy beaches, sleepy coastal villages and tranquil islands. Not to mention Mt Kilimanjaro and the red-cloaked Maasai warriors. As such, it makes sense that couples from all around the globe flock here to tie the knot.
Here are a few of our favourite outdoor wedding destinations in Tanzania:
