Timberlake honeymoons in Tanzania
After a week-long celebration, the celebrity couple left the Borgo Egnaza resort in Southern Italy, two weeks ago, and flew to the Kilimanjaro International airport in Tanzania, ahead of a safari-oriented honeymoon in the UNESCO World Heritage-listed Serengeti Park, according to the Daily Mail
The Serengeti is most famous for its annual migration of over 1.5 million wildebeest and 250,000 zebra, but also boasts healthy stocks of animals endangered by hunting, including lions, African leopards, African elephants, black rhinoceros and African buffalo.
The pair reportedly stayed at Sasakwa Lodge, built in the style of an Edwardian manor house; replete with wide verandas, high ceilings and stately furniture.
According to the Lodge’s site, each cottage has a private infinity-edge pool overlooking uninterrupted views, with furnishings including four-poster beds and imported chandeliers.
The Mail reports the couple are believed to have taken part in guided game drives and a hot air balloon safari.
Archery, lawn croquet, mountain biking and tennis are also available to guests.
Biel had made an earlier trip to Tanzania in 2010 when she climbed to the peak of Mount Kilimanjaro in a week-long charity event to raise awareness of the global water crisis.
After five days, Timberlake and Biel reportedly moved on to the associated Faru-Faru Lodges, which features a “Swahili-inspired ‘beach’” and an elevated viewing decks over a watering hole, allowing guests to view game without leaving their lodge.
They departed the resort by helicopter and boarded a private plane to their next destination.
It is the first marriage for the pair, who dated on-and-off for five years and were engaged for ten months.
