A Kenya honeymoon is one of the most romantic luxury honeymoon a couple can possibly experience. East Africa which includes Kenya, Tanzania & Zanzibar, are the best African honeymoon destinations, offering stunning landscapes, safari locations & beautiful tropical beaches. They range from private safaris to beach honeymoons at exotic places such as Zanzibar, Mombasa & Lamu.
Apart from holidays along the shores of the water bodies, for travelers interested to enjoy their honeymoon with adventure you can take wildebeest and gorilla trekking and it is possible to combine the Governor’s Camp photo safari or the Luxury Tanzania Rwanda safari visiting the Serengeti and Volcanoes and staying at Singita Game Lodges.
Beach & Bush Honeymoons
These are honeymoon packages that combine a Safari with a Beach stay along the beautiful East African beaches, such as Mombasa, Lamu or Zanzibar. Such travelers usually prefer the relaxing beach stay after the excitement & adventure of the safari. Planning a honeymoon thoughtfully is particularly important as it’s more than just a holiday. Coming to east Africa for your honeymoon can be very rewarding.
The Kenyan coastal strip is divided into the North and South coast. North Coast (north of Mombasa city) has the more developed and more frequented grouping of beaches starting from Nyali beach all the way to Shanzu and Kilifi, with plenty of hotel choices, night spots and tourist spots for those seeking a beach vacation.
South coast (south of Mombasa city) is a quitter and more relaxed, with even cleaner and sandier beaches and less crowds – ideal for that lazy, “away from it all” beach holiday in Kenya. We often get asked if there are any beaches in Nairobi. The answer is no, there are no beaches in Nairobi as this city is actually very much inland in the center of Kenya, and it is Mombasa which is the main city along the coastal strip of Kenya where superb beaches are in plenty. As regards how far Nairobi is from the beaches near Mombasa, there are direct non-stop one-hour flights from Nairobi to the Moi International airport in Mombasa, with plenty of airlines flying this route including Kenya Airways, Fast jet and Fly 540.
Diani Beach in south coast is counted among the best beaches in Kenya and indeed in Africa. Shanzu, Bamburu, Tiwi and the beaches along Watamu and Malindi are also highly rated. There are also other favored spots along the coast for everything from snorkeling, diving, deep sea fishing and water sports, not to mention marine parks. Keep in mind much of the coast line in Kenya is reef protected and has wide sandy beaches often backed with thick rows of palm trees giving the much-needed natural shade and green cover so useful for keeping cool during warm sunny days seaside.
