TANZANIA is becoming an increasingly popular destination for world's top celebrities following the arrival in the country of a new couple Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel for honeymoon.
The newlyweds opted to honeymoon among Tanzanian wildlife as the loved-up pair were seen arriving at the Kilimanjaro International airport two days after their nuptials.Justin and Jessica had tied the knot in a romantic week-long extravaganza at the Borgo Egnaza resort in Southern Italy two weeks ago.
Newly-released shots show the blissed-out couple exiting their private plane and boarding a helicopter to the reserve of Singita Grumeti in the world-famous Serengeti Park.Landing in the Sasakwa landing strip on October 21, Jessica covered her famous face with a white cloche hat.The 30-year-old bride also wore a white tank top under a grey cardigan, white trousers, and sensible flats.
Meanwhile, the 31-year-old groom was seen in a hat with matching khakis and a black T-shirt.Justin and Jessica reportedly stayed at the luxurious Sasakwa Lodge. According to the resort's website, each air-conditioned cottage has a heated infinity-edge pool overlooking 'where the land stretches forever'.
The lovebirds are believed to have enjoyed adventurous game drives with professional guides and a picturesque hot air balloon safari across the sprawling plains of the Serengeti.The posh resort also offers activities such as horseback riding, archery, lawn croquet, mountain biking, yoga and tennis.
Five days later, the famous couple reportedly continued their celebration at the riverside Faru-Faru Lodges in the same 350,000-acre preserve before leaving October 30 by helicopter, then boarded a private plane destined for yet another exotic location.Tanzania seems to be one of Biel's favourite tour destinations. She visited Tanzania back in 2010 when she scaled the 19,341 peak of Mount Kilimanjaro after a week-long charity climb alongside Emile Hirsch, Isabel Lucas, Santigold, and Lupe Fiasco for the global clean water crisis.
It's the first marriage for the twosome, who were engaged for 10 months after Justin proposed to Jessica in Big Sky, Montana with a custom-designed ring last December.Celebrity guests of the destination wedding included SNL's Andy Samberg, music producer Timberland and Jessica's 7th Heaven co-star Beverly Mitchell.
It was estimated that the week-long celebrations might have cost the on/off couple, who dated for five years, $10 million.And as Jessica walked down the aisle in her custom pink Giambattista Valli gown, Justin serenaded her with a new original song.'I figured if there was something I was going to be able to offer, it would be to sing her down the aisle,' the crooner told Hello! magazine.
'Grown men were weeping. Hopefully it's because I didn't sound bad.'One celebrity guest who admittedly weeped at their Italian ceremony was talk show host Jimmy Fallon.'It was just insane. Everything was just beautiful. It was really, really a beautiful night, the perfect temperature,' the funnyman revealed on Bravo's Watch What Happens Live.
'I'm just a sucker for weddings. I'm a fun person to invite to a wedding. I dance. I get up. I drink. But then I weep!'
