Detailed Description

A Kenyan safari promises riches. This is a country of 16 different national parks and a renowned track record for preserving and promoting animal kingdoms. With so much diversity and such an abundance of big game it's sometimes difficult to know where to start. This handcrafted itinerary offers a complete safari package for discerning couples seeking adventure and a romantic escape to Kenya.

You'll visit seven unique national parks, including the Maasai Mara, Lake Nakuru, and Tsavo West. A rounded package of experiences unveils Kenya from multiple angles; cycle and horse ride with ungulates at Hell's Gate, enjoy dramatic nighttime game drives in Amboseli, hot air balloon above the herds in the Mara, and get lost in the wilderness of Tsavo East. It's a vacation of nonstop highlights. It's also a vacation for romance and many affectionate moments in the secluded beauty of untouched Kenya.

The Maasai Mara provides unforgettable first safari moments. Admire the plains as they dance with migrating wildebeest herds and large numbers of big cats. These world famous grasslands extend from the private balcony of your exclusive camp, the herds kicking up swirls of dust across your panorama. On day two you gain impressions of the Mara's scale with a beautiful hot air balloon ride. As you soar above it all, the profusion of mammals you will see will give you goosebumps. Spend a third day transfixed in the Mara, losing count of the number of lion pride interactions, before you begin a seven day journey that exposes the thriving natural diversity and unique safari experiences of the country.

Be mesmerized by the flamingo clad Lake Nakuru, a serene stop that's dappled with enchanting visits from elephants, leopards, and endangered Black rhinos. Hell's Gate National Park isn't home to any big cats and, as such, the lack of predators provides the chance for new safari experiences. Ride mountain bikes through hills covered in antelopes, gallop on horseback alongside zebra herds, and take walking trails that encounter giraffe and more. The itinerary here is very flexible and self-guided, so create a shared adventure with your partner and soak up the sublime splendor. On day seven you reach Amboseli National Park. Picnic and unwind above pools filled with hippos, then watch numerous elephant herds walk beneath the glistening backdrop of Mount Kilimanjaro.

A long walking safari is the unique attraction in Chyulu Hills, a compact national park that receives none of the crowds. It's tranquil, alluring, and ideal for relaxing together in the vibrant wilderness. Tsavo West and Tsavo East are your final safari destinations. These vast expanses of dusty hinterland offer safari at its most unpredictable and dramatic. You're exploring kingdoms where those on two legs will only be visitors. Hyenas, vultures, lions, elephants and rhinos; there's an elevated intimacy to the adventure and nobody can predict the close-quarters wildlife drama.

While the national parks bring diversity, there are some endearing constants throughout your vacation. Expect some of Kenya's finest and most unique accommodation as the itinerary hand selects a range of exclusive lodges, luxury tented camps, and elegant cottages perched above the action. An experienced local guide and driver provide the narrative, yet they also know when to take a back seat and allow you to be alone together. Finally, there is no set daily schedule so you can craft the activities to your mood and energy levels.
