Egypt and kenya honeymoon hero 1

Egypt and Kenya Honeymoon

Inspirational honeymoon to Egypt & Kenya

This honeymoon is all about evoking the past, from the dramatic age the Pharaohs and the historic glamour of 1930’s Nile cruises, to the golden age 1920’s Kenyan safaris. Have your own ‘Death on the Nile’ luxury sailing and sleep under cream canvas tents surrounded by the African savannah.

Your time in Egypt takes in Cairo and the Nile Valley allowing you ample time to fully get to grips with the most famous sites of ancient Egypt from the Pyramids to the Valley of the Kings. Embark on a luxury Nile cruise from Aswan to Luxor aboard the elegant Sanctuary Nile Adventurer, perfect for leisurely sightseeing of the iconic sites alongside knowledgeable Egyptologist guides. At Luxor you will stay at the iconic Sofitel Old Winter Palace. Straight out of a colonial-area film set, soak up the vibes and toast your married life enjoying the views of the Nile at sunset. Then to another of Africa’s most iconic destinations, Kenya’s Maasai Mara Reserve, home to lions, cheetahs, elephants, zebras, wildebeest, and a host of other African wildlife. Your luxury safari will take place at Cottar’s 1920s Camp which captures the romantic spirit of safari from a bygone era. Following your day of thrilling game drives, relax in a traditional canvas bath outside your tent as you sip champagne and soak in the outstanding view.
