Generally, Africa is a top choice for nature-loving lovers. 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 itinerary 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.
