Overall Impressions

From beginning to end, our honeymoon was perfect! There was not a single thing that went wrong and we were treated like Royalty.

Countries Visited


Kenya is beautiful. We only saw a bit of Nairobi which was lovely and very clean. The Masai Mara is spectacular and everything and more than we hoped for.


Specifically we went to Zanzibar- Stonetown and the beach. It wasn't as expected but still lovely and definitely a different experience from the safari part of our trip.

Accommodation Visited

Ole Sereni Hotel

Lovely hotel, very accommodating. Only stayed overnight but room and food are great.

Ol Seki Hemingways Mara

Spectacular. Words cannot explain the level of expertise and care that goes into making this camps one of the best. Intimate setting, food was superb, immaculate tents, staff was amazing. We are so lucky to have experienced this place.

Kichwa Tembo Tented Camp

Another amazing tented camp. Food again was amazing, tents were even more wonderful. Nothing but good to say about this place. Everything was perfect.

Zanzibar Palace Hotel

Truthfully, neither my husband nor I cared for this hotel which I am surprised by. It is a nice hotel but nothing compared to the other places we stayed. Food was good but for some reason, we just didn't feel comfortable there.

Hemingways Nairobi

Only there for a day room but wish we had stayed the night!!!!! It is beautiful. Food was delicious and the rooms were just magnificent (and the bathroom). Wish we had a night there.

Pongwe Beach Hotel

Typical beach resort. Rooms are okay. Food was lovely. Beach is amazing. It did not blow us away but it was nice to be in an intimate setting given it was our honeymoon. Extremely hot and no AC in rooms was a bit on the uncomfortable side, and also having only salt water to shower with/wash hands with drove us insane. I know they are in remote location but this did not work out well for me given I have some skin sensitivity.

Staff Review

Claire was awesome and took the time to provide insightful responses. I knew very much what I was looking for, but she is an expert and recommended well! Happy with the overall process (it was a long one due to indecision on our part). I recommend Claire, Jamie (the other expert we worked with from Mahlatini) and the company in itself. They truly do live up to the luxurious vacation planners.
