Safari Overview

7 DAYS  6 NIGHTS

A longer beach retreat with a shorter safari option suits the needs of some of our  guests who are planning a first time or repeat bush and beach trip to the East African coastline in Kenya. You may wish to board a flight that arrives into Mombasa, sometimes on a weekly charter flight. You can then spend a few days on the beachfront then journey out into parks and reserves like Tsavo, Amboseli or even Masai Mara for two to three nights for safari game driving, village visits, nature walks, hiking and other wilderness activities before returning to your seaside hotel for the remaining period of your vacation. The third option is to have equal time on safari and at the seashore.

Day 2: Nairobi – Ol Pejeta

In the morning you will enjoy your breakfast at the hotel before embarking on the road to Ol Pejeta conservancy. Your safari guide comes to pick you up at 10 A.M for transfer to Ol Pejeta. You will make a stopover at the Equator Marker while heading to the camp.  This will be a3-4 hour drive from Nairobi. In Ol Pejeta, you will find yourself in what we call heaven on earth for rhino fans. With a population of 140 black rhinos the Ol’ Pejeta Conservancy is the largest sanctuary for these massive animals in East and Central Africa and it is also home to the last two remaining northern white rhinos in the world and 39 southern white rhinos. To top it off Ol’ Pejeta also hosts a sanctuary for abused chimps, and in the park itself you can spot the Big Five and many more animals.

Accommodation will be at the Sweetwaters Serena Camp. Here you will be checked in and have your lunch. You will later get to go for an afternoon game drive. Dinner and overnight will be at the camp. The Sweetwaters Serena Camp comes complete with jaw-dropping views of Mt. Kenya, impeccable services, and gourmet delicacies, ushering you into a world of infinite luxury. Top that list with cosy rooms, a serene ambience, and stirring views of the Ol Pejeta plains, and you have yourself an unforgettable honeymooner’s retreat.

Day 3: Full-Day Game Drive at the Ol Pejeta with Packed Lunch

Nothing says I love you better than a romantic surprise breakfast overlooking gorgeous scenery. You only need your room’s private balcony and sunrise to experience this magic, so let us know if this is something you’d love included in your itinerary. After that, you experience the thrills and spills of the Ol Pejeta through a morning game drive and get the chance to see the Big Five, leopards, and the wild dogs. And your friendly safari guide is on hand to walk the talk with you to deliver a wholesome experience and make your honeymoon more exciting. The guide leaves no stone of the 36,400-hectare land unturned as you get to view the rarities of the conservancies like the Grevy’s Zebra and the Jackson’s Hartebeest. The morning game drive turns into an afternoon one, and this is the perfect time to enjoy your picnic lunch. Enjoy your afternoon game drive right after your picnic lunch. You will get to visit the only two northern white rhinos remaining in the world at their feeding area. It is also the perfect time to feed some chimpanzees. You also get to learn how to help the conservation efforts, watch Baraka, the one-eyed rhino, at close range, and interact with the other six southern white rhinos.

Day 4: Ol Pejeta -Lake Nakuru National

It’s you and your lover, arms wrapped around your waist, on a horseback sunrise ride down the stunning plains of the Ol Pejeta at an additional cost. Or you could be in your rooms enjoying the sunrise over a delicious breakfast in bed. Whichever you choose, you can have the confidence that we will cover you in immeasurable luxury during your honeymoon. Your exclusive 4×4 safari land cruiser is deep in the jungle for one last game drive before heading to Lake Nakuru.

Take in the awe-inspiring views of Mt.Kenya, spot the wildlife, and enjoy the brief stop at the Sweetwaters chimpanzee sanctuary. The Sweetwaters chimpanzee sanctuary is the only place in Kenya where you get to spot the rescued creatures. Share in the joy of their newfound freedom with a dozen of photos. From here, you enjoy the 3-hrs road trip from Ol Pejeta to Lake Nakuru National Park with a stopover at Nyahururu or Thompsons Falls.  We arrive in the afternoon at the awesome luxurious Cliff Hotel inside the park in the. Perched on a 100-meter cliff that faces Lake Nakuru, the hotel is all glitz and glam when it comes to its ten luxury rooms, where you will check into the hotel and rest for the rest of the day while you enjoy the enthralling views and ambience of the accommodation.

Day 5: Full Day at the Lake Nakuru National Park

The Cliff offers you a bird’s eye view of Lake Nakuru’s beauty while still providing the higher comforts necessary for a successful honeymoon. A sunrise corridor breakfast is one way to partake in this splendour, but if it’s the wild you want, we’ve got a game drive on the cards. You head out while sunrise still looms for a game drive into the savannah woodlands of the park.  Watch out for hippos and the occasional sighting of the cheetah, not forgetting the hundreds of pink flamingos. Your drive only stops to make way for an intimate, packed lunch in the park, and even so, the scenery continues to steal your attention. The afternoon game drive commences after lunch. The guide drives you to the top of the hill for stellar views of Lake Nakuru in its entirety and later to the Baboon Cliffs for the baboons and more beautiful views. You drive spans into the evening, and when sunset strikes, we have no option but to sit still and amaze at its wonder. You can end the day with a glass of your favourite wine, music and some delicious cuisines during a sundowner.

Day 6: Lake Nakuru – Maasai Mara National Reserve

The Cliff has a setting that has it all: breathtaking panorama, volcanic hills, woodlands, and European-style rooms you can never tire of.  Enjoy a quiet private morning in the infinity pool, unwind in the spa, enjoy excellent cuisines in the restaurant or reminisce at the bar.

You will check out of the hotel by 10 A.M and head 247km south towards the Maasai Mara. Accommodation and check-in is at the Elewana Sand River Camp. Here you get to relax, have your meals and enjoy the amenities available at the camp. You and the love of your life will fall in love with the camp due to its well-thought-out design, cosy rooms, services, and delicious meals.

Day 7: Full-Day Game Drive at the Maasai Mara

It’s hard to imagine a game drive more rewarding than a Mara morning game drive. The sunrise and gorgeous scenery combine to present romantic vibes that are impossible to tear yourself away from. That combines with the fact that the wildlife is most active during the morning hours to make your 14 days honeymoon safari in Kenya worth every second. Your game drive starts at sunrise in your exclusive 4×4 open-sided Land Cruiser. The guide cruises through the vast wonderland of wildlife and vegetation, ticking off the list of the Big Five, wildebeests, zebras, gazelles, giraffes, buffaloes, and jackals.  Today you take lunch in the jungle. Honestly, there is no way to tell which one you will enjoy more: the lunch, the view, or the delightful company. The afternoon game drive begins immediately after lunch, and this time the guide heads toward Mara River.

It is the perfect way to follow the animal with this hunch likely to bring you to the presence of most of the 56 wildlife species found in Maasai Mara. The guide continues to warp you in unmatched sceneries, wildlife, and exciting ambiences for the rest of the afternoon. A lantern dinner overlooking the beautiful Sand River will give you bliss unto which you can end your day.

Day 8: Optional Hot-Air Balloon Safari/Game Drives at the Maasai Mara & Visit a Maasai Village

We take your vision to new heights and introduce you to romance as you’ll never experience elsewhere with a balloon safari of the Mara. The safari starts at the first light of dawn and introduces you to phenomenal fly-on-the-wall reserve views. The park shows you why it’s the most popular attraction in the country for an hour or so. Your pilot knows when to lower or raise the balloon for that surreal experience.

You cover an average of 8 miles while in the air, after which you enjoy a delicious breakfast right in the jungle. This breakfast is usually accompanied by champagne. Your morning is not done as you enjoy a game drive on the way back to the camp.

In the afternoon, you will have a first-hand encounter with the Maasai people in their village. It is the opportunity to take your honeymoon photos with the Maasai’s, learn their way of life, and even purchase their ornaments. A cultural dance with the Maasai’s will give an awesome opportunity to be one with them as you move your bodies to the tune of their beautiful traditional songs.

Day 9: Morning Game Drive at the Maasai Mara and Flight to Diani

Today you can spend the morning in the hotel to around 10 A.M. – the recommended check out time. Head to the airstrip for your flight to Diani. Our Diani team will meet you and transfer you to the resort. The chosen resort is sensational, and you can never get enough of its mind-blowing ocean views, atmospheric rooms, and serene ambience. We arrive at the Baobab Beach Resort where you will be checked in for the evening. We leave you lovebirds to get acquainted with your love nest for the rest of the tour.

Day 10: Spend Morning by Yourself and Tamarind Dinner Cruise

Today you and your spouse have the morning by yourself to get time to discover this beauty and spend time together.

Today you get to spend time alone relaxing by the beach and enjoying water sports and other water activities. In the evening you will get to go for a dinner cruise in Mombasa, just a short drive from your accommodation facility. You get to enjoy dinner at the floating restaurant that combines romantic ambiences, delicious cuisines and beautiful Swahili architecture. This will be one of the highlights of your amazing honeymoon.

Day 11: An Amazing Day Diving in Diani

A dive into the cathartic waters of Diani opens you up to beauty you’ve never seen before. The experiences promise an explosion of colour fish varieties and stunning corals. The reef shark and whale shark (earth’s most significant fish) to get you started are also an exciting part of the beach.  Let the Diani underwater excite you till midday, from where you head back to the hotel for the rest of the day.  You can enjoy massages, spas, and other hotel related activities today or even spend time at the sandy beaches of Diani.

Day 12: A Full-Day Exploration of the Water Wonders of Wasini Island

After breakfast, our guide will pick you up for your transfer to Shimoni a journey that will take you a little over an hour. You take a dhow to Wasini Island from Shimoni.

Wasini Island is a 7km coastal strip offers a great attraction for lovers. A day here promises you and your spouse memories you will hold dear for life. Swim, snorkel, deep-sea dive, lounge at the beach, or ask a professional photographer to take pictures of you two.

When you are done exploring its waters, let your taste buds go on an adventure of their own with mouth-watering cuisines. You then go on a dolphin tour back to the Shimoni on the dhow.

And even though dolphin sightings are not guaranteed, the incredible stretch of blue water does more than compensate. You can end your day at the hotel with scented candles, a relaxing bubble bath, rose petals from the shower to the bed, champagne, and delicious food.

Day 13: Full-Day Deep-Sea Fishing

Today our guide will pick you up after a delicious breakfast and take you to the sea to explore and catch some of the famous fish in the Indian Ocean. The journey takes you to Mlango (Swahili for a door), the passage to the open sea. From Mlango, the captain sails anywhere from 15 to 30 minutes into the open ocean. It’s magic the moment that hook, line, and sinker hit the water. You are invited into a world of excitement; you love birds barely containing your joy at the prospect of catching something ‘valuable.’ Coffee and tea are served on board and delicious local cuisines.

Day 14: Morning by Yourself and Flight to Nairobi

Spend a pleasant morning partaking at the wonders the hotel has to offer.  Enjoy sea views from the comfort of your rooms, go on a relaxing walk in its tropical forest, or spend a fantastic morning on the beach.

After that, you check out the hotel and get a transfer to the airstrip for your flight to Nairobi.  You can book an international flight from Mombasa instead of returning to Nairobi.

Lamara tourism thanks you for choosing us as your most trusted travel partner and welcomes you for your next African adventure. We wish you a safe travel back home.
