Kenya safari

Jane's verdict:

A safari honeymoon is one of the most romantic ways to start married life. Being whisked out of your everyday life to a remote Kenyan camp with thrilling bush drives or even balloon safaris by day and dinner under the African stars by night. Bring out your inner Karen Blixen and add on a dreamy Indian Ocean beach retreat at the end for good measure.

Mahlatini says

Think of Kenya and the words “quintessential safari” come to mind – the endless acacia-dotted plains and swaying grasses of the Masai Mara.

  • Great beaches
  • Luxury lodges
  • Year-round sunshine

However, there’s much more to explore in Kenya, from the semi-arid Samburu National Park in the north, to Amboseli on the border with Tanzania and stunning flamingo flocked lakes in between. There’s the nerve jangling excitement of the annual Great Migration, and endless tropical beaches and water sports on the aquamarine waters of Kenya’s Indian Ocean coastline.

You can browse our suggested itineraries for inspiration, but we specialise in tailor making bespoke Kenya honeymoons for all budgets and ambitions. We’ll steer you away from the more crowded areas towards a selection of boutique and intimate lodges, where your doorstep is the bush and the game viewing is as peaceful, private and rewarding as it can be.

Safari in style for less at Mahali Mzuri, Sir Richard Branson’s stylish flagship safari lodge in the Masai Mara, where fantastic honeymoon offers year round make this champagne soaked uber luxurious lodge a very realistic prospect.

Immerse yourselves in the unique colonial atmosphere at Cottar’s 1920s camp where elegance and authenticity are the order of the day and guests can even experience game drives in vintage vehicles.

A Kenya & Zanzibar Honeymoon is a popular choice, combining a safari in Kenya with a beach stay on the exotic spice Island of Zanzibar.

Want to experience everything Kenya has to offer?  We can organise ‘circuits’ by air or road for a myriad of wonderful sights and experiences – check out our Kenya romance and adventure itinerary.
