Wonder where that starry couple Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel
went on their honeymoon? They went on safari and "blessed the rains down
in Africa," as the 1980s Toto song goes.
Africa looks to be an
increasingly favorite playground and philanthropy beneficiary of celebs,
such as Madonna, and royals such as Prince William and Prince Harry.
Recall that William proposed to Kate Middleton in Africa in 2010, after
carrying his mother Princess Diana's engagement ring around the Kenyan
wilderness for days.
Still, it's rude to be nosy about where
newlyweds head after the nuptials but try telling that to the paparazzi,
who caught up with Justin and Jessica as they stepped off a private
plane a few days after their "magical" wedding in Italy last month.
arrived in Tanzania on the southeastern coast of Africa on Oct. 21, and
later took a helicopter from Kilimanjaro International AIrport to Singita Grumeti,
a private reserve in Serengeti Park. There, the couple explored the
world-famous wildlife, took a hot air balloon ride and stayed at two
luxurious lodges, according to US Weekly.
couple married Oct. 19 in a mostly private ceremony at the Borgo
Egnazia resort in Puglia, Italy, before just dozens of close friends and
family. After, the couple spoke to People magazine.
It was magical," Timberlake,31, said. "It was an unforgettable evening." Biel added: "It was a fantasy."
He told Hello!
magazine that he serenaded his bride with a new, original song as she
walked down the aisle in a custom, pink Giambattista Valli gown. "Grown
men were weeping. Hopefully it's because I didn't sound bad," he joked.
is a big draw for the couple: Biel, 30, climbed Kilimanjaro in January
2010 during a grueling week-long expedition to raise money and awareness
of the global clean water crisis. And Timberlake is set to climb the
mountain soon, too; he had to cancel the 2010 climb with Biel to do the
media tour for Social Network.
