START PLANNING YOUR KENYA HONEYMOON SAFARI
Kenya is a fantastic honeymoon destination, with amazing game viewing and beautiful beaches that can be combined to create the ultimate safari and beach honeymoon. In addition to having incredible wildlife, Kenya also offers gorgeous scenery, interesting culture, varied activities and experiences and warm hospitality – all the ingredients to offer a memorable honeymoon safari.
Kenya honeymoons also tend to offer good value for money compared to other parts of Africa, and can be relatively affordable as you don’t need to spend too long on safari in order to benefit from world-class wildlife viewing.
If you are looking for a luxury Kenya honeymoon, there are plenty of boutique camps and luxury lodges to choose from, whilst for more adventurous honeymooners a variety of authentic tented camps will appeal, and activities such as walking or horse riding safaris are possible. Whatever your personal honeymoon requirements, Kenya has the places, people, wildlife and accommodation options to give you the most incredible experiences and memories.
BEST HONEYMOON DESTINATIONS IN KENYA
The Masai Mara is Kenya’s leading safari area, a spectacular region of open grassland savannah, flanked by hills and escarpments and bisected by water courses, including the Mara River. The game viewing is unbelievable, arguably the best in Africa, and the Masai Mara is home to the Great Migration from July to October each year. The Masai Mara is actually so good that four days is often enough time on safari, leaving you more time to relax on the beach, which is usually less expensive than being on safari.
However, the Masai Mara is not the only area worth visiting in Kenya. The Laikipia Region in central Kenya and Samburu/Mathews area to the north of Laikipia both offer a huge variety of different experiences, from luxury lodges and beautiful scenery to big game, walking, horse riding and fly-camping safaris. And of course, your safari can be combined with some leisurely days on the beach, soaking up the sunshine and swimming in the warm Indian Ocean, to create the ultimate safari and beach Kenya honeymoon.
MOST ROMANTIC KENYA LODGES
Many safari camps and lodges in Kenya are wonderful for a honeymoon safari, and we would generally recommend choosing properties that offer the best possible all round safari experience rather than purely a luxurious or romantic angle. However, some properties are really spectacular in terms of their location, exclusivity and romantic vibe, and would therefore be described as perfect Kenya honeymoon lodges.
KENYA HONEYMOON SAFARI & BEACH
After your safari (or before your safari, if you choose to relax at the start of your honeymoon) it is easy to reach some wonderful beach destinations. Kenya has an extensive and beautiful Indian Ocean coastline, with most resorts found south of the iconic coastal town of Mombasa. The Diani area is popular and home to a number of different hotels and resorts, while further south a few more exclusive and boutique properties can be found. North of Mombasa there are a few good hotels in the Watamu area, just south of Malindi. Beyond the Kenya coast, it is also possible to combine a Kenya honeymoon safari with a number of other superb beach destinations including Zanzibar, Mauritius or Seychelles.
