Choosing a honeymoon destination is a very personal decision, but if you’re thinking sun, sand and the sexiness of somewhere unknown, then choosing one of the Zanzibar honeymoon packages that are available could be the perfect solution. At Driftwood Beach Lodge, we know a thing or two about romance, and we can help you make the most of your romantic escape.

That’s the beauty of Zanzibar as a honeymoon destination: there are so many kinds of holiday to be had here, and it’s seductively simple to combine romance with any of them.

Zanzibar Honeymoon packages bring wedded bliss

Zanzibar has romance in (buckets and) spades. There’s the air of mystery that still pervades the old ruins and abandoned forts, the intrigue of winding Stone Town alleys and closed, carved wooden doors – and perhaps even a glimpse of a Zanzibari bride in her traditional finery. The air is heavy with exotic scents, and you’ll have all the time in the world to do as much – or as little – as you like.

If you’re both the active type and looking for a action-packed Zanzibar honeymoon package, you can try your hand at kitesurfing (Zanzibar is a world-renowned kitesurfing destination), fishing or hire a traditional dugout sailing canoe from the fishing village close to Driftwood Beach Lodge and head out for a sunset cruise. A word to the wise: avoid your first tiff as a married couple by deciding who steers and who paddles before you set off! Alternatively, fishing excursions offer lots of opportunities to impress your partner – or for some healthy competition, if you both manage to hook some sushi.

Equally, there’s no obligation to do much of anything. After all the hard work planning your big day, you’re both probably ready for a holiday. Driftwood Beach Lodge provides the ideal location in which to chill, and you are more than welcome to just beach around and look gorgeous in your new tans and swimwear.

Further afield, you can embark on shared adventures as you explore Zanzibar together, and start creating your lifetime of shared memories. The combination of sunshine, fresh sea air, and even fresher seafood will do wonders for your health, and you’ll both feel amazing from the moment you arrive in Zanzibar.

A Zanzibar Honeymoon filled with surprises and special moments

The team at Driftwood Beach Lodge are always delighted to welcome honeymooners, and love to surprise newlyweds with intimate, private moments. We won’t give away all our secrets here, but think candlelit (or starlit) dinners under palm trees with just the maritime breeze to interrupt your whispers, or romantic turndowns in your beach bungalow (complete with frangipani and bougainvillea petals on the bed).

Zanzibar’s fascinating history will bring out the romantic in you as you thrill to tales of pirate loot around a beach bonfire. Digging for buried treasure could be a good option if you’re already thinking about more jewellery as an anniversary gift. We can also arrange private excursions for the two of you to romantic spots around Zanzibar, although we can’t guarantee that you’ll return with any pieces of eight.

For every kind of just married couple, there are Zanzibar honeymoon packages to suit your idea of a dream romantic holiday. After you’ve booked the venue and the church, call Driftwood Beach Lodge on +255 774 236 455 or click here to get in touch and we’ll share the romance of the Spice Islands with you.
