Warmth and Romance in Kenya
Africa is one of the best kept secrets of romantics who like to travel, and is an inspiring continent with wide open plains, lively cities and stunning beach resorts. Imagine elegant tented safaris, picturesque rolling sand dunes with no one in sight other than your sweetheart, dreamy island escapes where you can frolic in the turquoise Indian Ocean water alongside your lover, and elegant safari tents snug enough for the two of you. Whether you would like the comforts of a world-class hotel, or the idea of rugged country living, Africa has it all. You can safari in Kenya, sleep in tents beneath the stars, and then pop over to the stunning beaches of Mozambique, or quiet beauty of the Seychelles and Mauritius. From the moment you reach Africa, the warmth and romance will envelop you.
Kenya is Africa’s most unmissable destinations, boasting excellent safaris, world-class beaches, and a good balance between busy and serene. For those with a sense of adventure, who enjoy getting out and about, and trying new activities – Kenya is the place to be. Imagine a romantic safari in a tent in the bush, and then a few days relaxing in the sun on a deserted beach. What more could you want? If you’re particularly adventurous, you’ll like what Kenyan beach life has to offer – you can try your hand at kite-surfing, mountain biking, kayaking, windsurfing, paddle-boarding, snorkeling, diving, fishing, sailing, and many others. Sounds too good to be true, doesn’t it? While you can enjoy these activities alone, with your sweetheart by your side you’ll better enjoy the warmth and romance of beautiful Kenya.
If you’re wanting to experience some of the best safari in the world, you can’t go past a trip to one of the many reserves, such as the Masai Mara National Reserve. The ability to witness some of the world’s most majestic creatures in their natural habitat will be an unforgettable experience. Holding your loved ones hand, imagine gazing across lush green fields to watch a family of zebras grazing in the grass, never leaving each others side. Two elephants, a mother and a baby, run across a dry field in search of some water, the little elephant just keeping pace with its mother. If you continue to look around you, you’ll see giraffes impressively gazing into the far-distance, and gentle giant rhinos strolling right past you. Colourful birds flit past your safari vehicle, and you crane your neck to watch them perch on the highest branch of a nearby tree. You’d better believe it, it’s possible still to make your day better – as soon as dusk falls, you can take a journey in a hot balloon across the Masai Mara. This is particularly magical during the annual widebeest migration, and is thought to be one of the most natural spectacles in the world. You can watch the migration of 1.5 million wildebeest from July until November.
Other than safari, Kenya has many excellent destinations dependent on how busy or off-the-beaten track you would like it. The country’s south has Kenya’s most busy, buzzing destinations like Mombasa, Tsavo and the Mara and the north of Kenya is a little quieter and has some excellent sights, like Lake Turkana, Laikipia, Lew, Mathews Range and areas of Samburu. You can laze on the beaches in Mombasa and Malindi, snorkeling and diving some incredible coral reefs. Don’t forget to visit gigantic Mount Kenya, where you can scale the mountain’s snow capped peaks and take in some incredible views. To gain a little insight into Kenya’s past, you can also visit some fascinating tea estates and museums. There is so much to do in this beautiful country, so be sure to visit soon!
