We find ourselves with an “awsome” dilemma: We planned on going to Seychelles and Kenya for our honeymoon but are considering to do Zanzibar andTanzania.
Regardless of practicalities like getting from one place to the other or cost comparisons, does anyone have an opinion on the above?
It would be very helpful for us to get some feedback. Which pair would you recommend? Why that one instead of other? Could you share travel itinerary, suggestions?

I’ve lived in Kenya and have travelled through Tanzania and Zanzibar – I say TZ and Zanzibar, but that’s biased as I didn’t have much time to do touristy things in Kenya, and I’ve never been to the Seychelles. I did a safari through the Ngorongoro Crater/Serengeti/Lake Manyara and another park and it was nice, though in the end I think I would have been happy just to do a shorter run through the Crater (which is gorgeous). Zanzibar is really neat – I’m not a beach person so I didn’t enjoy the time I spent on the beaches as much (I went to the north and east sides of the island) but it was beautiful. Stone Town is very neat, great markets, night-time food markets (if that’s still going), interesting architecture – but I think you could have a comparable experience in Lamu (Kenya).

We went to Tanzania and Zanzibar and it was AMAZING! Our safari was in the Selous which apparently has good concentration of animals so you’ll be kept busy.
You also get to do river safaris which are great for birds, hippos (they are everywhere!) and crocs, it’s great to follow this with a beach holiday, crystal clear water and white powdery sand.
We stayed in the south of Zanzibar which was beautiful and then spent a few days in Stone Town where you can do excursions to spice plantations. Stone Town is really interesting and busy so OK to be there just a couple of days – definately go to a hotel rooftop to watch the sunset.

I’ve never been but my friend went to Zanzibar and the pictures are out of this world so I can just imagine how amazing it is to be there in person!
