Be it for your honeymoon or a city escape, the verdant rolling hills of Mufindi make it just a perfect place to relax and take pictures with lush green backdrops. What we love about Mufindi, in south Tanzania, is its location, off- the radar of tourists, hence, you are less likely to see any crowd or photo bombers! If you are thinking of a photo shoot location or a special celebration, this is a must visit destination.
Nungwi Beach, Zanzibar
If you were to ask, which was the best beach to be in Zanzibar was, an obvious answer is Nungwi perfectly situated at the northern east tip of the island. Its crystal clear waters, white powdery sands and dreamy lodges are perfect for your bikini and romantic shoots. The sunset- backdrops and the playful scene on the shore gives you the real feel of spending a perfect beach holiday in Tanzania and the photos will be memories of one of the finest beaches you have ever been in your life.
Ruaha National Park
As one of the largest yet underrated park in Tanzania, there is something special about this iconic destination. Photos on Instagram would reveal its earthy tones; elephants covered in dust, lions playing in dry beds and kudus camouflaged in crackling leaves, game watching here is extremely rewarding and unique. You can either book a trip to Ruaha as a destination or combine it with a Southern Circuit Safari.
If you are in Tanzania for a short break and close to the city of Dar es Salaam, you will be pleasantly surprised to visit Udzungwa- green hills with majestic waterfalls; home to chameleons yellow baboons and vervet monkeys. This is an ideal destination for camping, hiking and of course, brilliant photoshoot in jungle themed backgrounds. You can later go for a short safari in Mikumi too, the fourth largest national park of Tanzania, close to Udzungwa.
Little is known about this wildlife rich island, situated by Lake Victoria. With diverse bird life, butterflies, antelopes and recently introduced chimpanzees, this park makes for an exotic treat and ideal break from the big 5 safaris.
