Kenya

  • Hi Michele, very many thanks. It was a superb holiday! Both places were really fabulous and yes we saw not only cheetah but also wild dogs including a litter of 13 pups – which are apparently v rare in Kenya if not also elsewhere. The Mara House stay really blew me away however and I would certainly consider going back! Let alone the beautiful house and setting, the staff there were superb – more than going the extra mile for us every day. Our guide was Dixon and Dennis looked after us mainly on the food/house side. They worked very hard but were also very pleasant and easygoing company and we had plenty of conversations to find out what life was like for the local people – how they lived, their culture, values and what they ate etc. Truly enlightening and thought-provoking about what really matters vis a vis the over-materialistic pampered world of the West! So a high really high recommendation there from me! Very many thanks for all you have done – and your fabulous choice of places for us. I have the safari – if not the Kenya – bug now, so it may be that you hear from me again. Thank you again!

‘Bush & Beach’ Honeymoons in Kenya

Kenya is a popular honeymoon destination due to the simple fact that it offers amazing game-viewing and beautiful beaches, and crucially, the two are relatively easy to combine. Kenya also tends to be the most affordable of the ‘bush and beach’ options, though it does obviously depend on where you stay. The great thing about Kenya is the variety of options on offer, so you can really tailor-make your honeymoon to suit your personal tastes, interests and budget. The Masai Mara is such a fantastic safari option (especially for first-timers on safari) that even if the Kenya coast does not appeal (or it is the wrong time of year), you may wish to consider a Kenya honeymoon safari in conjunction with a beach extension further afield.

There are many safari options to choose from in Kenya. If you’re looking for romance, exclusivity and pampering, consider Sasaab in Samburu, Saruni in the Masai Mara, or Ol Donyo Lodge in the Chyulu Hills. For a more down to earth safari experience but still with a bit of ‘wow’, try a tented camp such as Naibor in the Masai Mara or a boutique lodge such as Elsa’s Kopje in Meru. For those looking for a great wildlife experience at an affordable level, consider the Kicheche camps or Offbeat Mara in the famous Masai Mara. It is possible to combine a more adventurous tented safari with a more luxurious lodge safari to create the perfect balance between romance, pampering, game-viewing and adventure. Some of the tented safaris may require a more adventurous spirit, but the whole experience is so much more personal and intimate than you might experience in larger, seemingly more comfortable lodges.

For the beach, the range of properties in Kenya is huge, from resort-style hotels like Serena Beach and Pinewood Village, to exclusive island retreats such as Manda Bay and The Funzi Keys. ‘Robinson Crusoe’ hideaways like Kizingo and Kiwayu offer raw escapism. It is also possible to combine a Kenya safari with a beach extension to Zanzibar, The Seychelles, Mauritius or Mozambique.

Safari Weddings in Kenya

We have arranged numerous romantic weddings in such iconic locations as the foothills of Mount Kenya and the rolling grasslands of the Masai Mara. Your wedding can be tailored to suit your requirements – either with all the frills, or just romantic simplicity. There is a little more paper work involved and you will need a couple of days in Nairobi to start with, but overall, it is relatively straight forward. Obviously your ‘bush wedding’ can be incorporated into a longer safari and beach itinerary.
