Generally, Africa is a top choice for nature-loving romantics. Kenya especially has long been a choice destination for couples wanting to converge romance with spectacular safari experiences. Kenya is a country where falling in love all over again is as easy as spotting a wildebeest. The rustic surrounds, soft-sand beaches with its azure waters makes Kenya timeless for romantics. Coupled with the excitement of seeing the Big Five, Mount Kilimanjaro, the Great Wildebeest Migration and some of the world’s most exclusive and romantic secluded private wildlife conservancies, it’s no wonder that Kenya is a prime destination.

A great Kenya safari would be to start with a few days at one of the exclusive camps that stud the conservancies bordering the Masai Mara or Amboseli, then maybe head to a similar camp on the Laikipia Plateau. This could be followed with a few days relaxing at a ‘barefoot luxury’-style beach resort near Diana, Watamu or Malindi.

Take a look at three of the most romantic destinations in Kenya:

1. Sabuk Lodge, Laikipia Plateau

Sabuk is remote and beautiful…an exclusive wilderness haven on the edge of the Northern Laikipia Plateau. Perched on a cliff overlooking the Ewaso Nyiro River, which cascades beneath the lodge all year round. Sabuk, which remains a favourite for romantics and families offers untouched wilderness and stunning views of the Laikipia plains towards Mount Kenya, as well as the Karisa Hills and Mathews Mountains in the North.

Tortilis Camp is named after the flat-topped, umbrella thorn tree Acacia Tortilis, a sight synonymous with East Africa. It is situated in one of Amboseli's areas of Acacia Tortilis woodland, with the majestic backdrop of Africa's highest mountain, the snow-capped Kilimanjaro. Game drives, walks, sundowners and bush meals are enjoyed both inside the park, and within a private 30,000 acre game where Tortilis Camp is located.

3. AfroChic Diani Beach, Diani
