Overall Impressions

Our honeymoon was truly a trip of a lifetime! We could not have been more pleased with every aspect of the trip. The trip was so well organized and we did not stress or have to worry about a thing! We loved every place we went to and all of our accommodations were fantastic!

Countries Visited

Kenya

Kenya was by far our favorite place that we traveled to. We got to spend two nights at Hemingways Nairobi which was a gorgeous hotel with wonderful staff. The best part was our stay at Ol Seki Hemingways Mara Camp on the Mara Naboisho Conservancy. The camp was incredible with beautiful tents and fantastic scenery. The staff was some of nicest people we have ever met! We saw so many animals on our game drives and our guide/driver, Mike got us so close to them, it felt like we were right out with them! All of the food in Kenya was delicious too! We loved the local Tusker brews.

Seychelles

The Seychelles were absolutely gorgeous. We stayed on Mahe the majority of the time, but did do one day trip to Praslin and La Digue. The beaches on all these islands were some of the most beautiful beaches we have ever seen.

United Arab Emirates

Dubai was a fantastic city! We couldn't believe the number of high rises. We were only there for 2 nights and it was very hot, but we did manage to go to the big malls and on a desert safari.

Accommodation Visited

Hemingways Nairobi

Hemingways Nairobi was a beautiful hotel. The rooms were very nice and extremely clean and the grounds were gorgeous. Everyone who worked there was welcoming and friendly. We loved the food and the dawa drinks!

Ol Seki Hemingways Mara

Ol Seki was one of the best places we have ever stayed at. When we arrived, we were upgraded to a private area on the camp with another couple on their honeymoon. We were given a shared lounge tent with a private kitchen, personal chef, bar and couches. This made for a very intimate and special experience. Everyone we met from Ol Seki was so kind and welcoming and made us feel right at home! We got 3 course meals cooked for us for each meal and the food was all wonderful. We went on multiple game drives a day and even did a bush dinner with the whole camp!

Kempinski Seychelles Resort

Kempinski Seychelles Resort was a beautiful resort on the beautiful beach, Baie Lazare. We had a room where you could walk right out to the beach and they had chairs that you could set up to make your own little private beach space. There were multiple restaurants on the resort and they were all very good! We loved happy hour planters bar and lounge!

JA Ocean View Hotel

JA Ocean View Hotel was a very nice hotel in a great area on Jumeirah Beach. Our room was beautiful and the food at the hotel was very tasty! We easily used ubers to travel around to other locations in Dubai.

Staff Review

Stuart was fantastic to work with from the moment I first spoke to him. For someone who loves to travel and plan my own itinerary, he allowed Jon and I to give our own input and suggestions on what we wanted to do and he took this and planned a 5 star iterary. Stuart was so knowledgeable about all of the places we traveled to and made us feel extremely comfortable about all the places we would be going to. The itinerary we received and package with all of our trip information and vouchers was wonderful and so organized and made for very easy travel! Stuart called to check in a week before our honeymoon and checked back in as soon as we returned. We would book through Mahlatini and with Stuart again in a heartbeat! Thank you for giving us a honeymoon we will never forget!
