Romantic adventures for couples in Kenya

Hot air balloon safari

Probably you already feel like being on Cloud Nine… with a hot air balloon safari over the well-known Amboseli National Park, you’ll literally be there (okay, almost). Just after the sun rises you hop into the little basket and take off towards heaven. Even though it might be a little cold at that time of day, you won’t regret it: first, it gives you an opportunity to cuddle with each other and second, the animals are most active in the morning. You can share this experience with other guests or turn it into a just-the-two-of-us-adventure – it’s completely up to you!

Bush dinner and sundowners

A dinner in the bush is supposed to be romantic? Oh yes, it is! Just the two of you will enjoy some yummy food in the middle of the savannah, surrounded by nothing but the lions’ roars, the birds’ chirps and the setting sun at the horizon. No matter if Amboseli, Tsavo East, Tsavo West or Samburu National Reserve – a bush dinner and sundowners will make your couples holiday in Kenya even more special.

 

Private sunset cruise

When in Diani, you shouldn’t miss out on a private sunset cruise. In a traditional ngalawa boat you sail towards the setting sun on the Indian Ocean. Marvel at the Kongo River and the Shimba Hills in this unique light and enjoy snacks, drinks and a delicious dinner while doing so. And yes, this might just be the perfect moment to ask your loved one to share the rest of their life with you. Just saying 😉

 

Night safaris

Okay, a night safari could also fit in the next category of “Thrilling adventures for couples”, but it’s also romantic! When driving through the rugged nature of the Lumo Conservancy, you can move closer to each other and keep your eyes open for nocturnal animals like leopards, lions, owls and serval cats – and thanks to the powerful light of the safari jeep you might even spot the shiest of them.

 

Thrilling adventures for couples in Kenya

Hiking adventure

In Kenya you can either hike up Mount Longonot or even Mount Kenya. However, if you want to reach the summit of Mount Kenya, you definitely need a few days. Should you just want to go on a day hike, Mount Longonot is perfect. The dormant volcano is close to the wonderful Lake Naivasha and spoils you with stunning views over the crater and the Kenyan Rift Valley. Of course you’ll also meet plenty of animals like zebras, gazelles, giraffes and maybe even a few buffalos.

 

Walking safaris

You want to immerse yourself even more in the Kenyan flora and fauna? Then join a walking safari, for example at the shores of Lake Naivasha. Hike up and down the green hills and listen to your guide’s stories about nature and wildlife. This is the perfect opportunity to not only see hippos, giraffes, zebras or waterbucks up close, but also little animals that you’d usually miss in a jeep. Hiking in an area filled with wild animals will surely make the bond between you even stronger.

 

 

City tours

If you also want to feel the hustle and bustle of Kenya’s two biggest cities, you should definitely follow your heart. Mombasa combines the historic center Old Town with a vibrant city life. Discover the colourful spice market, the historical Fort Jesus and enjoy local cuisine and cocktails until late at night. During a Nairobi city tour we’ll take you to all the highlights – from Uhuru Park and the National Archives to a Maasai Markt and the McMillan Library. If you want to discover the city from a different perspective, join the Nai Nami City Tour, where former streetkids give you a very special insight to the country’s capital.

 

Where to stay? 4 romantic ideas for couples in Kenya

Satao Tented Camp

The tents in Satao Tented Camp in Tsavo East National Park are different – in a good way of course. The natural materials and earthy tones give you a homey feeling and luxurious dinners and sundowners at the campfire add that little spark, literally. The highlight: the waterhole just in front of your tent. Relax on your terrace or even in your bathtub with a glass of bubbly while watching impalas and elephants meeting up just in front of you.

 

Pinewood Beach Resort & Spa

If you’re on a budget but don’t want to miss out on some luxury, the Pinewood Beach Resort & Spa at Diani Beach is perfect for you. Surrounded by palm trees you can relax in the cozy atmosphere, hop into the pool or directly into the Indian Ocean. The only question you have to answer every day is: where to have dinner? In one of the three restaurants, at the pool or right at the beach with your feet in the sand?

 

Msambweni Beach House

Privacy in paradise: that’s the Msambweni Beach House. In your private beach villa you can enjoy us-time par excellence, enjoy the sunset together and jump into the waves first thing in the morning. It’s up to you where you have your breakfast, dinner or lunch served – the luxury of choice!

 

The Sands on Chale Island

The Sands on the private Chale Island is a one-of-a-kind hotel and the pinnacle of romance! No matter if you stay in one of the standard rooms, an ocean view banda, an overwater suite or even the suite on the rock: a stay in this exclusive resort with a Swahili inspired design will lift you to Seventh Heaven. Of course you can simply relax at the white beach. But you can also go on a mangrove tour, snorkeling, diving or even get married (again). Another highlight: the Colobus monkeys hopping from one branch to another in the trees around you and the Green Turtles and their nesting site on the island.
