For those who want to get away from the crowds, this 10 night honeymoon is the perfect romantic hideaway. You will enjoy an exclusive safari experience in a private conservancy bordering Kenya's Masai Mara followed by a blissful week long stay on the island of Zanzibar at a private and intimate beach resort with just 6 villas.
Hemingways Ol Seki is a stunning 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 with a huge double bed decked out in fine linens. Six opening panels surround the bed on 3 sides, which mean that from the comfort of your pillow you can watch the dawn break over the African bush outside. If 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 - which might be at first light to capture the sunrise and an early morning cheetah hunt or after dark to experience some of the nocturnal 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. You will fly by light aircraft to the exotic spice island of Zanzibar, situated 6 degrees south of the equator. White sandy beaches line the shores, fringed by wispy palm trees that sway gently in the breeze that comes off the Indian Ocean. The crystal clear, warm turquoise waters entice snorkellers and divers to explore never-ending coral reefs, and romantic dhows cruise into the golden sunsets. You will stay at The Palms Zanzibar, which was featured among the World’s Most Romantic All-Inclusive Resorts by Travel and Leisure Magazine.
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 and groom stay for 7 nights at The Palms but only pay for 5 nights. Honeymooners also receive sundowners in the room, a 10% discount on PADI diving courses and a complimentary 30 minute neck and shoulder massage.
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), then accompanied to meet up with your driver/Customer Services representative.
You will be transferred to Wilson Airport where you will 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.
After breakfast at the camp you will be transferred back to the airstrip where you will board your flight back to Nairobi.
Safarilink 002 (Light Aircraft): Fly from Masai Mara Airstrip departing at 11:00 to Wilson Airport (WIL), arriving at 12:20

You will then be transferred to your honeymoon hideaway.
Welcome to one of Zanzibar's most exclusive, private resort with just a handful villas in an intimate setting. The Palms is a sanctuary for those in search of tranquility and a place to stimulate the senses and experience the very best of the island of Zanzibar.
