BEST AFRICA HONEYMOON SAFARIS IN KENYA & TANZANIA
Looking for the perfect honeymoon?
Picture the romance of swaying palms, pink sunsets, and starry nights.
Now add the adventure of racing cheetahs, prowling leopards, and marauding lions over the savannah.
If you are romantic – and we know you are – and adventurous, no place but East Africa will fill you with such an overflowing blend of the two.
Imagine, tracking the big cats, immense elephants, and delightful giraffes on the golden savannahs by day and then settling into your cozy tented camp or sleeping under a diamond sky at night… lulled to sleep by the chirps and calls of nature’s melodies all about.
Where To Begin?
The wildlife parks, conservancies, lodges, and discreet, romantic tented camps throughout Kenya and Tanzania present endless but delightful choices.
Here are just a few:
Treat yourselves like British royalty with a stay at Giraffe Manor in Nairobi. This 80-year-old mansion set amongst the woods would have you believe you were in the English countryside except for the many giant Rothschild’s giraffes moseying about the grounds. Don’t be surprised when they poke their long necks through the window for a bit of breakfast.
Not far off, you’ll be cooing at the sight of dozens of baby elephants at the David Shedrick Elephant Orphanage. Watch as the adorable waits-high babies drink from their giant baby bottles.
You can’t visit Kenya without exploring its most famous park, the stunning Masai Mara National Reserve. Home to the Great Wildebeest Migration, you’ll thrill to the spectacle of millions of wildebeests, zebras, and gazelles, pouring into the park. But you can also add unique experiences befitting a memorable honeymoon like a dawn hot air balloon safari over the reserve, as the sun lights up the land and wildlife below.
For another indelible moment in your honeymoon, the two of you can engage in a Maasai wedding ceremony. Celebrate your union as Maasai warriors escort you to the altar under the gaze of the village chief as you declare your vows amidst the timeless setting of the Masai Mara.
And if you’re in the mood for love and its offspring, a visit to Tanzania’s Serengeti National Park will bring you into the immense calving fields of the Ndutu region. During the birthing season from December through March, thousands of baby wildebeests, zebras, gazelles, and more fill the vast plain with their infant cries, yelps, and bays as they take their first wobbly steps into our world.
Add To The Romance
Our Africa and the safari life specializes in romance. Where else can you enjoy a dinner under the stars, with just the flicker of the candles and the distant sounds of wildlife adding its romantic soundtrack to your meal?
Enjoy a couples massage or bubble bath overlooking the moonlit savannah. Settle into our cozy star beds, with the natural world about lulling you to a peaceful sleep.
And in the soft light of the new day, we’ll take you for a breakfast feast in the bush, with the morning dew fresh upon the land.
Finish At the Beach?
But East Africa isn’t only wildlife parks – your honeymoon safari will find its perfect finale at our world-class beaches and shores hugging the turquoise Indian Ocean.
Kenya’s Diani Beach is an inviting uncrowded swath of golden sand perfect for snorkeling and diving. Up the coast, the beach town of Lamu is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and playground for the international set. It’s a delightful blend of Swahili, Arab, and Asian influences with a distinctly chill vibe.
Or explore Tanzania’s crown jewel of a beach scene on the postcard island of Zanzibar. This picturesque slice of paradise offers an assortment of quaint fishing villages, punctuated with pristine sands and opportunities to sail, swim, and snorkel.
Any of these East African beach havens will leave you brilliantly refreshed, a wonderful coda to your honeymoon safari.
Time And Budget
So how much time should you plan for your safari? And what kind of budget should you expect?
Everyone’s safari, just like everyone’s honeymoon is unique, depending on your wishes, desires… and dreams. Your honeymoon expert will review the parks with you, their settings, and the wildlife you’ll find there. You’ll also talk about the special options befitting a once-in-a-lifetime romantic adventure.
Most couples will want to spend at least a week on the safari portion of their honeymoon to really get a taste of the parks and the safari life.
Your budget is of course personal and we will match the best accommodations and experiences with your comfort level. No matter what, we will personalize your adventure to your expectations.
Please let us know what you are thinking about, how you picture yourselves on safari, and most especially on your honeymoon. We’ll take it from there and custom-craft your very best adventure and romantic experience.
