As I am writing this, I am taken aback when myself and my husband were planning for our honeymoon in 2005. One thing I must acknowledge that took hefty of our time was picking out the destination to go for our honeymoon. Take my word for this one, it wasn’t easy even after narrowing the options down to only 4 East African countries of Tanzania, Kenya, Uganda and Rwanda.
That one aside, let me use this opportunity to congratulate you on getting married and at Earthlife Expeditions, we wish you nothing but lots of love happiness.

If Kenya is going to be your choice in your African honeymoon, Masai Mara should be your top choice as well as Mathews range, Lewa Wildlife Conservancy, and Galu beach.
You can’t really speak of Kenya honeymoon safari without taking the legendary Maasai Mara into an account. Apart from its yearly wildebeest’s migration from the neighboring Serengeti park, Masai Mara is renowned to its exceptional populations of all big cats (lions, leopards, and cheetahs) who can be seen in a short plain of this magnificent park simply known by the locals as The Mara.
After the unique experience in Masai Mara, Lewa wildlife conservancy is another destination that will surely make your honeymoon as wild as desired. In fact, this private park among all the big 5 will also bring you closer to the endangered Grevy’s Zebras and Sitatungas.
Although, as if that wasn’t enough, Lewa is the only area in the world where there is the largest population of Grevy’s zebras and at the moment I am writing, the conservancy has up to 350 individuals.
Hosting over 12% of Kenya’s Eastern black rhinos tells it all about the hidden gem of the Lewa Wildlife Conservancy.
Mathew’s range is another great destination if remoteness and privacy are your things. The fact that these ranges of Mountains receive few visitors makes it even unique for a honeymoon safari.
Horse riding in the territory full of elephants, buffalo, and leopard is a lifetime experience you and your beloved one can experience in Mathews Range while at the same time enjoying birdlife who never stop singing the beautiful scenery of Mathewson Mountain ranges.
Kenya is a wildlife-rich land, you are going to be spoilt with choices when it comes to best places to visit in your honeymoon safari. On the flip side, regardless of where you choose to go to Kenya, you should never worry about the choices you are going to make.
Whether it’s going to be any of the above destinations or Amboseli, Lake Nakuru and Samburu, your honeymoon vacation in Kenya isn’t by any chance going to be floppy. You just need to travel with an ethical operator who will understand your style and help you plan the safari of your lifetime.
