For those who want to get away from the crowds, this 10 night honeymoon to a private conservancy bordering Kenya's Masai Mara followed by a blissful week long stay in a boutique beach lodge on the coast should not be overlooked.
Hemingways Ol Seki is a stunning private tented camp and your enclave of luxury in the wildest terrain of Kenya. It is located in the heart of the Naboisho Conservancy, which borders the Masai Mara Reserve. The conservancy limits entry to clients actually staying inside the area and offers an incredibly private safari experience. Honeymooners will stay in a Nina Tent, whose high dome centers over a double bed decked out in fine linens. Six opening panels encompass the bed on 3 sides, which mean that from the comfort of your pillow, you can watch the dawn break in panorama. And it that is not enough to whet your appetite for a honeymoon here, how about the offer that the bride pays nothing at all for her accommodation over certain times of the year - does that help to persuade you a little bit?
Days are as action packed or as relaxed as you want and being in a conservancy means you have the freedom to head out on game drives whenever suits - that might be at first light to capture the sunrise and an early morning cheetah hunt or that might be after dark to experience some of the alternative wildlife that you wouldn’t see during the day.
After 3 wonderful nights on safari here, it is time for some downtime at the beach. Msambweni Beach House has 700 feet of private beach along a 4 mile stretch of Kenyan coastline, with palm trees offering peace and tranquillity.
This boutique hotel is known for its range of sumptuous meals combining fresh seafood, Swahili, Belgian and French cuisine, which can be enjoyed every evening by the pool or in a special private setting, by candlelight under the African sky while listening to the whispers of the breeze from the Indian Ocean.
If peace, privacy and a total break away from life is what you need to round off the perfect honeymoon, then this is the place to be.
Honeymoon offers included in this package are:
The bride stays for free at Ol Seki Hemingways - the only cost is the nightly conservancy fee.
The bride receives a 10% discount on her accommodation at Msambweni Beach House.
Arrive into Nairobi's Jomo Kenyatta International Airport.
You will be met once you disembark from the plane, and assisted through Immigration (including help if required with visa application and processing), luggage collection and Customs (luggage screening), and then be accompanied to meet up with your driver/Customer Services representative.
You will then be transferred to Wilson Airport, arriving in time to check in for your morning flight to the Masai Mara.
Safarilink 01 (Light Aircraft): Fly from Wilson Airport (WIL) departing at 10:00 to Masai Mara, arriving at 11:00
You will be met at the airstrip and transferred to your safari camp. Ol Seki Hemingways Mara is a private tented camp in the thriving Naboisho Conservancy. Charge up your camera and focus your binoculars, there's so much to see. Elephants crash through the acacia scrub, hippos submerge themselves in the slimy pools, an elusive leopard lolls in the high branches - your experienced guide will train your eyes to distinguish the creatures from their natural camouflage. The conservancy borders the Mara and there are no fences to inhibit the migration of animals which means you should see the Big 5 and all the other indigenous animals on your check list right here, sometimes within 5 minutes of the camp. Only vehicles from the properties located in the conservancy are allowed here, so you see only wildlife, not minibuses.
You will need to check out of your room this morning but you can remain at the property and use all the facilities until you are collected for your transfer back to Mombasa Airport. Alternatively, if you have an evening flight, the hotel can arrange a late check out for you (additional cost and payable directly to the hotel) subject to the availability of the room.
