After a week in southern Italy leading up to their reportedly $6.5 million nuptials at the Borgo Egnaza resort in Puglia, the newlyweds then kicked back in Tanzania at the uber-pricey Singita Grumeti Reserve — where lodging can cost as much as $5,700 a night! Luckily for Timberlake and Biel, this time of year is the South African resort’s “low” season … otherwise it would have cost $7,620 per night spent at the Singita Sasakwa Lodge’s private villa retreat.
The new husband and wife boarded a private jet bound for Kilimanjaro International two days after their October 19 nuptials. In grainy photos from that day, Timberlake, 31, and Biel, 30, can (barely) be seen stepping off the plane. Both are dressed for comfort in pants, short-sleeved shirts, hats, and sunglasses.
According to E! Online, the couple spent the first five days in the Serengeti Park and enjoyed all kinds of activities, including a hot air balloon ride and a wildlife tour, which they took on 4x4s. Then it was onto the nearby Faru-Faru lodges, where a villa suite goes for nearly $4,000 a night. On October 30, the newlyweds ended their nine-day honeymoon and headed back to the U.S., where Biel will begin promoting her new movie, “Hitchcock,” on November 17.
Although the couple had to get back to reality, the bliss probably hasn’t worn off yet. “It was magical,” Timberlake told People after the nuptials. “It was an unforgettable evening.” Added his new bride, “It was a fantasy.”
