Planning a honeymoon is possibly the most important holiday decision one will ever make. The choice of where to enjoy your honeymoon moments is yet another test; which one must pass otherwise your plan for romance could remain unfulfilled.
Kenya is a destination that can exceed your expectations for the most memorable moments in time.
It offers the genuine authenticity, romance and excitement that portray the African dream; when you think of Africa, you think of Kenya.
Located near the equator, Kenya offers savannahs teeming with game, cultures as old as time and unchanged by the modern world; forests, snow-capped peaks, deserts, beaches, and even coral reefs.
The full spectrum of luxury hotels, tented camps, and endless opportunities for adventure and breathtaking moments of discovery wrapped with the warmth of the people is what makes your safari unforgettable.
Magical Kenya will leave you truly spoilt for choice! Here are some places to visit while you are there:
Not only is Nairobi a cosmopolitan city and the capital of Kenya, but it also has the most wildlife in the world, which makes it a perfect safari destination. Nairobi has many parks and open spaces throughout the city. Much of the city has dense tree-cover and plenty of green spaces. The most famous park in Nairobi is Uhuru Park.
Located on Kenya’s Eastern coastline bordering the Indian Ocean, Mombasa has the best beaches in the world!
Mombasa, the second-largest city in Kenya, boasts cultural and historic diversity, as it traces many of its cultural traditions to former Portuguese, Arab and British settlers, all of which have left a lasting influence on the City’s food, architecture, and people.
Masai Mara National Park
Honeymooners looking for a more adventurous getaway would do well to consider a multi-day route through Kenya's Masai Mara National Game Reserve. The Masai Mara, one of Kenya's most popular Game Reserves, is home to a stunning variety of animals including the famous "Big 5" of the African grasslands.
It is a world-famous facility with the awe-inspiring annual wildebeest migration!
The Masai Mara also presents a wonderful opportunity to exchange vows while aboard a balloon safari enabling you to traverse the vast savannah, have a wonderful view of the big five, and catch a perfect view of the new 8th wonder of the world; the wildebeest migration among other different species of wildlife.
Great Rift Valley
The area surrounding Lake Naivasha in Kenya's Great Rift Valley is one of the most spectacular in the country in terms of natural abundance. It's also full of charming colonial-style country hotels where Mother Nature is literally at your doorstep.
The region is home to hundreds of bird species (especially flamingos) and is an ideal starting point to explore attractions like Hell's Gate National Park, an otherworldly terrain of cliffs and volcanoes, as well as the giraffes and zebras of Crater Lake Game Sanctuary. If relaxation is your thing then a spa retreat at Lake Bogoria is the place to be.
The Kenyan Coast
Lined with pristine white sand beaches fringing the warm inviting waters of the Indian Ocean, where the wilderness meets the sea, and the ocean itself holds a world of spectacular coral reefs teeming with life and color.
The coast is a place with a long and exotic history, its calm blue waters, the traditional passage of the Arabian Spice Trade. Along the length of this coast, Arab and Portuguese forts, Old Towns and the overgrown deserted ruins of Swahili outposts, bear witness to this fascinating history.
In the winding medieval streets and bustling markets of Lamu and Mombasa Old Town, life has continued unhurried and unchanged for more than 400 years. This blend of natural beauty and living history creates an exotic paradise unlike anywhere else on earth.
Spa and Relaxation
Having a spa treatment, be it a simple message or a hot stone massage that sinks deeper into the muscle tissues, is an excellent way for people to unwind and lower stress levels.
For the leisure traveler, a spa visit helps reduce stress levels and energizes them for the following days’ activities.
Hotels, lodges, camps, and other accommodation facilities are becoming more and more aware that a spa facility is now, almost a must!
Tsavo National Park
Visit one of the oldest and largest national parks in the world, which covers 4% of Kenya's total land area!
Major attractions in the Tsavo East National Park include the Mudana Rock, Yatta Plateau, Lugard Falls, Aruba Dam and, of course, mammals and birds, as Tsavo East National Park is one of the world's largest game reserves.
It is great to visit farms and meet with the local community when in Nairobi to learn about Nairobi’s rural life and diverse culture. Get involved in cultural activities and enjoy traditional songs, dances, and food.
