A lot of thought, a few tears and a bunch of undue anxiety went into picking our honeymoon destination so I figured I'd share our considerations for anyone currently in that stage of wedding planning. I put a lot of pressure on myself during this process because I had unreasonably high expectations of what I considered to be "the perfect honeymoon" and if I can spare even one person a fraction of the stress I experienced, this post is worth it!
After typing up our Safari experience, I decided to break it into two posts because each leg is pretty unique. If you haven't already, be sure to read Honeymoon Part II: Tanzania Safari in the Serengeti before diving into this post as it provides more context on how/when we arrived in Tanzania and our first few days on Safari. We traveled with andBeyond for both legs and absolutely loved our experience in the Serengeti. For more details on our trip to Ngorongoro Crater, keep reading!
As I mentioned in my original post about Planning a Safari in East Africa, there's really not much to do since the Safari company you select organizes the entire thing [at least that was our experience]. We simply provided a rough budget, ideal travel dates, where we were coming from and where we were going after and andBeyond did the rest! It really is ideal for a honeymoon since so much planning goes into the wedding and reception. Read more about our experience on Safari here.
