Safari at Masai Mara, Kenya

Olare Mara Kempinski Masai Mara combines luxury 5-star accommodation with unspoilt, beautiful wilderness.
A simply unforgettable experience, the reserve is home to a number of wild animals, including elephants, lions, giraffes, zebras, leopards and rhinos, among others. Don’t miss ‘the greatest wildlife show on earth’ – the migration of the wildebeest which occurs each year at the end of July.
Each Kempinski safari package will come with full-board accommodation in a luxury tent, daily evening cocktails in the wilderness and two game drives per day. Other services you can enjoy at this beautiful location include bush dining, a romantic night game drive, guided nature walks, a hot air balloon safari and a visit to a local Masai village.

For a city break like no other, explore Nairobi
Nairobi is the capital of Kenya and is an incredibly unique location. Nairobi National Park is the world’s only game reserve found within a major city, with beautiful wild animals such as giraffes, lions and monkeys calling it their home.
The David Sheldrick Wildlife trust is an unforgettable and humbling experience – and a must visit while you’re in Nairobi. It is the most successful orphaned-elephant rescue and rehabilitation centre in the world, and showcases the people of Kenya’s care and passion for its native animals. The African Fund for Endangered Wildlife Trust is the home of the endangered Rothschild giraffe, and makes for a great day out. Enjoy the nature trails of the Nairobi suburb of Langata, get up close with giraffes and learn about the importance of conservation, all on the same day.
If you want to make your trip even more romantic, then stay at Villa Rosa Kempinski Nairobi. Located in the heart of the city, the hotel provides a perfect base to explore all Nairobi and the surrounding area has to offer.
Relax and Unwind in the Seychelles
An island located in the Indian Ocean, off the coast of East Africa, the Seychelles is a popular romantic destination with plenty to offer couples.
The Seychelles are famous for their stunning white sand beaches and crystal-clear waters. The most popular beaches are Anse Soleil, Anse Intendance, Port Launay and Anse Source D’Argent, and you can easily pass the hours here, relaxing and taking in the beautiful scenery.
If you can bear to take yourself away from these beautiful beaches for a day, a visit to Victoria or Sauzier Waterfall will be well worth your time. Victoria is the colourful capital of the Seychelles, with unmissable sights including the Victoria Clock Tower, Arul Mihu Navasakthi Vinayagar Temple and Sir Selywn Selywn-Clarke Market. The Sauzier Waterfall in Port Glaud is a popular attraction and a great place to go with your partner to swim and take pictures!
And to make your trip to the Seychelles even more special, stay at the 5-star Kempinski Seychelles Resort, Baie Lazare. With plenty of luxurious rooms and suites, an on-site spa, bars and restaurants set against the stunning backdrop of the Seychelles, it is the perfect place to stay with your partner.
