Kenya is the birthplace of Abercrombie & Kent, and its magnificent landscapes, colourful tribal culture and incredible wildlife make for a magical honeymoon. Furthermore, accommodation here is superb and diverse, from stylish bush homes to secluded tented camps; private sundowners, relaxing spa treatments and sumptuous fine-dining await you.
Kenya’s game reserves are among the best places in Africa to see the Big Five – lion, elephant, leopard, buffalo and rhino. The deep blue waters of its crater lakes also prove irresistible to a variety of stunning birds. From the world’s biggest bird, the ostrich, to flamingo that congregate in vast flocks at the various lakes of the Great Rift Valley, Kenya’s birdlife is captivating. For jaw-dropping aerial views nothing beats a balloon ride over the bush, whilst a walking safari is a great opportunity to see the smaller things easily missed on game drives. Our guides are the best in the business, and they will bring the bush to life with their vivid stories, insight and depth of knowledge.
During the summer months the bush springs to life as the drama of the Great Migration unfolds. One of the wildlife’s greatest spectacles, some 1.4 million wildebeest and Burchell’s zebra make the year long, round-trip from Tanzania’s Serengeti to the Masai Mara. A picnic lunch amongst the action brings a whole new meaning to the term ‘alfresco dining’. Stay at the utterly romantic Sanctuary Olonana, with its safari tents nestled on the banks of the Mara River – a prime spot to watch the migration. Whilst you’re here in the African outback, we can arrange for your marriage to be blessed the traditional Maasai way by tribal elders.
After the excitement and adrenaline of safari, the sun-dappled Kenyan coast beckons. Here you can immerse yourself in a unique coastal culture which is as rich and rewarding as the local Swahili cuisine. The coastline south of Mombasa is a tropical paradise of palm-hemmed, white sand beaches where the turquoise waters of the Indian Ocean meet colourful coral reefs. Experience the barefoot luxury of the Ocean Spa Lodge, offering 14 suites each with a view of the ocean and beach – it’s the perfect coastal retreat before or after a safari. South of Malindi, Watamu is a marine national park where the coral gardens are just 300 metres from the shore, making it a superb location for diving and snorkelling.
