Love is in the air

February 3, 2015

February is the month of love with Valentine’s Day falling right in the middle.   Well, we like to think that Kenya is one of the most romantic places in the world and the perfect spot to celebrate love.   Here are the top 3 reasons Kenya is the place for romance:

  1. The romantic scenery

From the sweeping plains of the famous Masai Mara to the rugged outline of Mt. Kenya; from the azure blue of the Indian Ocean to the green hills of Africa with Mt. Kilimanjaro in the distance – the scenery of Kenya is simply designed as the background for all things romantic.   Love is always in the air when you are dining under the stars or sipping a sundowner watching the sun slip below the horizon.

  1. The romantic history

Kenya is the setting of one of the most romantic movies of all time, “Out of Africa”. What woman hasn’t dreamed of having their hair washed by a gorgeous man and what man hasn’t secretly wanted to fly across the savannah with a beautiful woman at their side.   Kenya is also where princes have proposed to their future princesses & princesses have climbed out of tree houses and become queens!


  1. The romantic accommodations

With names like star beds & star baths, the accommodations in Kenya just whisper romance. No matter what your definition of romance is – luxurious rooms with Italian linens, “glamping” in private tents, your own private home in the bush or sleeping out under the stars – you can find it in Kenya. Imagine lying in bed listening to the huff of the lions & seeing the stars overhead, it simply makes you want to fall in love all over again.

So while it might be too late for this Valentine’s Day, why not celebrate next year in Kenya. We promise you the most romantic trip you’ll ever experience!
