Highlights

Kenya’s beaches are among the most romantic in the world, all white sand, shady palms and lovely sunrises. As with solo travellers or families, a highlight for most couples will be the opportunity to spend a few days on safari, watching the Big Five and other creatures in the likes of the Masai Mara, Amboseli and Lake Nakuru. For something more offbeat, try self-driving or travelling by public transport through the Rift Valley.

Practical advice

Although most couple are happy to spend plenty of time alone together, it can be fun to break things up with the odd night at a more sociable venue such as a backpacker hostel or intimate private lodge.
