Honeymoon in Kenya

Listen to an audio version of this blog post! Just press the play button below. Brilliant sunsets, herds of glistening gazelles, diamond beaches, and luxury safari lodges – could a place be any more romantic? Or a better spot for a honeymoon? Kenya is becoming the new retreat for newlyweds who want a non-traditional experience amongst nature’s pulse-quickening bounty of big cats, great elephants, and stately giraffes. With their brilliant savannas, colorful rainforests, and enchanted acacia woods filled with exotic leopards, bright pink flamingoes, birds, and butterflies, Kenya’s great parks deliver honeymooners into the realm of safari wonder.

The fiery sunsets alone will burn enduring memories of this special moment in time making your Kenya honeymoon unforgettable.

Nairobi and Mombasa

Even the names are exotic and conjure images of adventure and romance. Your honeymoon is certain to begin or wrap up in one of these two special cities so take a little time to explore the special treats you’ll find here.

There are wildlife adventures even within Nairobi – get up close to the giraffes at the Giraffe Centre and gush at the sight of baby elephants sipping from giant baby bottles at the Sheldrick Elephant Orphanage.

In coastal Mombasa, anything goes – explore the narrow streets of the Old Town, sail on an authentic Arab dhow in the Indian Ocean or ride a camel on the beach!

The Great Masai Mara

What is a Kenya honeymoon without a visit to this legendary world-famous park? Picture a safari and you’ll imagine the golden savannahs and acacia trees of the Masai Mara. The park and its neighboring conservancies hold great prides of lions, plus leopards, cheetahs, and other cats… over 95 species of animals.

The celebrated drama of the reserve centers around the immense spectacle of the yearly Great Migration – an unbelievable influx of millions of wildebeests, zebra, and gazelle herding into the park in search of grasses and water.

And what better way to create a perfect memory of this moment than to take an early morning hot air balloon safari over this magnificent sight.

Chilling at Diani Beach

Of course, what’s a honeymoon without some serious beach time?  Kenya offers some of the most pristine coastline anywhere. And Diani Beach, set on the blue-green waters of the Indian Ocean is known as Kenya’s finest – clean, relaxed, uncrowded, and sophisticated, Diani is the perfect beginning or finale to your safari honeymoon.
