Kenya's dazzling landscapes blend old-world charm with unforgettable safari experiences. Take your partner and escape into untouched Africa, journeying far from roads, tourists, and any other reminders of the modern world. Kenya becomes a private paradise as you explore the game filled wilderness on foot, horseback, and by vehicle. This 12 night luxury safari in Kenya showcases Kenya at its most romantic and remote, the whole experience...
Day 1 - 2
Nairobi – Welcome to Kenya!
After the flight to Kenya, two nights at your comfortable hotel ensure you're fully rested before the safari adventure. A renowned kitchen blends international and African cuisine, hundreds of bird species sing from the treetops, and a gaggle of ungulate species chase each other around the vast gardens. Soak up the grandeur and marvel at the first impressions of Kenya but remember, you're just 30 minutes outside the capital city, so just imagine how impressive the safari will be when you head out into the wilderness.

Wake up. Look around. Elephants roam beneath the camp, rhino footprints are visible in the sand, and an eclectic cast wanders wild before your eyes. There are no other people, it's hundreds of miles from a road, and the immersion in wilderness is absolute. This is Kenya. This is your own private piece of big game paradise and a vacation of safari experiences that combine old-world charm with unforgettable nature. Over these twelve nights you explore off the beaten track Kenya, each of the four destinations reveling in luxury, inimitability, and intimacy. World renowned Maasai Mara, the remote Meru National Park, opulent grandeur in Laikipia...each destination has a unique appeal and colorful animal cast. Each excels in simultaneously providing impressions of escapism with the feeling of being alive in nature's greatest playground. Few vacations are as romantic. And few can deliver such an extraordinary concoction of individualized safari experiences.
Your romantic Kenyan vacation starts in Nairobi, the Kenyan capital hiding enchanting treasures. Gaze out from your luxuriant suite and giraffe cover the garden. Some will approach and feed from your hand, others will nod hello and peer into your bedroom. This is just the start, the relaxing trailer for what's to come. Fly into rugged Meru National Park, a pristine wilderness that only has two permanent camps. Elephants drink, hippos wheeze-honk, lions hide in the grass, and you get to experience it all from the romantic privacy of your wooden framed camp. Wake to the sounds of the wild, game drive through remote big game filled plains, enjoy campfires surrounded by animal silhouettes, and take evening walking safaris into your own piece of wild Africa.
Wildlife is obviously integral to the whole experience. Lion prides, leopards, rare Black rhinos, obscure antelopes; Kenya has all the game you've dreamed of and then an eclectic superfluity of species you can't even imagine. It's not just about individual sighting. These 12 days immerse you in the unforgettable scale and continual wildlife interaction of Africa. So don't think lion prides and gazelle. Think lion prides chasing gazelle and the scene repeating itself day after day. And remember, by staying in luxury camps and private reserves you won't be sharing the experience with other visitors. All the carefully selected accommodation exudes an old-world charm and grandeur, elevating the romance and showcasing a very intimate side to Kenya.
After Meru you drive across the Laikipia Plateau to Laikipia Hills, where you spend three nights on a vast private ranch. Follow ancient antelope trails on foot, horseback ride alongside zebra herds, take camelback safaris into a beautiful landscape, and enjoy individualized game drives that explore vast stretches reserved for those on four legs. Few African safari experiences are as opulent or elegant. Completing this handcrafted vacation is a four night stay in the Maasai Mara, home to the great wildebeest migration and one of nature's most flourishing collections of big cats. Your luxury camp has its own private concession, allowing you and your partner to be alone with arguably the planet's most famous game reserve. Walk hand in hand through the Mara, take nighttime game drives into lion country, and then lie back and watch the natural theater from the comfort of the bed.
