The 3rd stop of our honeymoon was in wild Kenya.
It was a dream come true being able to spend 10 days in this country. There are more than 45 national parks and reserves, mountains, and outdoor adventures at every turn. The landscapes are truly indescribable; in fact, some of the most incredible photos we have ever taken are from our adventures around the bush.
Firstly, We headed to Maasai Mara!
The Maasai Mara National Reserve is well known worldwide for the exceptional wildlife.
A Masai Mara safari is an unmissable and spectacular highlight of our honeymoon. From the gorgeous coast to the vast savannah, this East African country is an unforgettable escape. There are breathtaking panoramas in every direction, a big range of wildlife including the Big Five and a rich cultural heritage to explore. Kenya’s Masai Mara is, without a doubt, one of the greatest safari destinations in Africa and transformed our honeymoon in the honeymoon of our dreams
To get to Maasai Mara from Nairobi, It takes 1hour on the small plane or around 6h by car. we decided to book a private jeep with a driver that could guide us through Kenya. In that way we could also appropriate the size of the country, see the everyday life outside Nairobi and stop in Rift Valley. Our Driver Abu was also with us on game drives and his 20years experience made a difference!
The Great Rift Valley is a continuous geographic trench, approximately 6,000 kilometres in length, that runs from Lebanon’s Beqaa Valley in Asia to Mozambique in Southeastern Africa. The worlds largest valley is really impressive and when visiting kenya a must to do stop to admire the beautiful nature.
It is very common to stay only 2-3nights in Masai Mara. In our case we moved between 2 different lodges on opposites sides of the National Park. It allowed us to do game drives in different locations and spotting more animals! We spent 5 days in total searching for a wildlife.
Our first lodge was Mara Engai lodge where we spent 2 nights. Set on the Siria Escarpment, 1000ft above Kenya’s Masai Mara with breathtaking views over Mara Triangle and great wildebeest route. This lodge is everything you can imagine and much more. Perfect for our dream honeymoon.
Then after exploring surroundings, we have driven through the conservancy to the next camp.
