Our specialists say:

A delightful blend of Kenya's wildlife rich reserves and idyllic white sand beaches

When considering what to do for a Honeymoon, few combinations of experiences offer the sense of adventure, romance and luxury than a trip to see Africa’s unique wildlife followed by time on its idyllic white sand beaches. Kenya is arguably the best destination to enjoy a safari and beach experience, with abundant wildlife found in varied areas and some of the best beaches Africa has to offer. Start your trip-of-a-lifetime with a flight to Nairobi, spending your first night in a hotel close to the domestic airport so you have an easy journey to catch your first internal flight the following morning. Your first safari will be enjoyed amongst the rolling hills and deep red soils of the Samburu National Reserve in the centre of the country. Famed for its outstanding elephant sightings, fascinating cultural interactions and amazing vistas, this is the perfect spot to ease yourself in to your African experience. From Samburu fly down to the iconic Maasai Mara, one of the most renowned game viewing destinations in Africa with plenty of big cats, excellent elephant sightings and some of the finest guides Africa has to offer. For the final leg of your trip fly across to the beautiful Kenyan coast for a stay on Diani Beach where you can relax in the sunshine, swim in the warm waters of the Indian Ocean and enjoy some of the finest seafood anywhere in the world. From Diani fly back to Nairobi to connect with your flight back to London.

In between your activities you can relax by the infinity pool, soak up the sunshine and enjoy the warm, natural service that the genial staff provide. The food here is outstanding a real feature of a stay at Saruni Samburu with dishes inspired by seasonal, locally sourced ingredients.

Day 4: Choose how to spend your day

Saruni Samburu Tribe

Samburu tribespeople

Perhaps the most taxing part of any stay at Saruni Samburu is deciding which activities to enjoy. As well as traditional game drives they offer guided walks which are a great way to get up close and personal with some of the smaller animals of the bush, as well as learn more about the trees and plants that dot the landscape. You can also visit a local elephant sanctuary, spend some time in a traditional Samburu village and explore hidden caves which are home to ancient rock art sites. If you are really looking to treat yourselves then they can also arrange helicopter trips over the region, capped off with sundowner drinks, which is an amazing way to spend an afternoon.

Day 5: Fly to the Mara

Saruni Mara Traditional Bedroom

Bedroom at Saruni Mara

Enjoy a final breakfast on the terrace overlooking the plains before being transferred back to the airstrip for a light aircraft flight down to the Maasai Mara. From the airstrip you will be transferred through the reserve to the lovely Saruni Mara which is tucked away in the renowned Mara North Conservancy, which borders the main Maasai Mara National Reserve. Offering all the benefits of the Mara’s outstanding game viewing, but with the added bonus of being on privately managed land which is much quieter, this is the perfect spot for your big game viewing safari.

Day 6: A full day on safari

Saruni Mara Lions On A Game Drive

Spend the day out with your hugely experienced guide enjoy the amazing game viewing that this region offers. Lion and leopard sightings are especially good here, with the large herds of plains game providing plenty of opportunities for hunting which is always an exciting spectacle to witness. Elephant sightings are also very good here, whilst iconic animals such as giraffe and zebra are seen in strong numbers. Honeymooners visiting between August and October will also have the opportunity to visit the main part of the reserve to see the herds of the Great Migration and possibly one of the incredible river crossings.

Day 7: Relax or explore – the choice is yours

Saruni  Mara Sundowners

Sundowners from Saruni Mara

In addition to the morning and afternoon game drives, there are plenty of other alternative activities which you can enjoy at Saruni Mara. The neighbouring Olchorro Conservancy is home to an excellent rhino sanctuary where you can get up close and personal with these gentle giants of the bush and learn more about the conservation work being done to protect them. There will also be the chance to enjoy an early morning hot air balloon ride – a truly iconic Maasai Mara experience and a truly wonderful way to spend a morning of your Honeymoon, capped off with a Champagne breakfast on the Mara plains.

Day 8: To the beach

Relax in the shade of swaying palm trees, swim in the lovely swimming pool and enjoy some of the most delicious seafood Kenya has to offer in the lovely beachside restaurant.

Days 9-12: Relax in paradise

Sands At Nomad Beach
