Nature Lovers' Kenya Honeymoon

Inspirational safari honeymoon to Kenya

For nature lovers this thrilling honeymoon explores Kenya’s northern Samburu region and the famous Maasai Mara. This truly life-enriching journey offers exclusive experiences of African wildlife, culture and wilderness in partnership with surrounding communities.  With a stay in 1 of 6 eco-chic villas at Saruni Samburu, begin by encountering Africa's most unusual wildlife up close in their natural habitat: the 'Samburu Special Five', rare endemic species present only in the arid North, the famously large herds of Samburu elephants and the endangered black rhino, reintroduced to Northern Kenya after 30 years.   

Follow this with an unforgettable experience in Kenya's most well-known park, the Maasai Mara, staying in 2 camps, Saruni Mara and Saruni Wild, giving you the opportunity to explore different areas of this incredible wilderness. From July to October the wildebeest migration will be spread across the plains but there is an abundance of wildlife year-round including all the big cats. Enjoy endless views, fire-lit meals under the vast African sky and guided game drives led by Maasai warriors.
