Kenya Overview

Whether you're looking for romantic seclusion or want to dive head first into a frenzy of sightseeing and activity, you can choose either or both in Kenya. The diverse landscape makes it possible to divide your time between beach and game parks as well as exploring Nairobi or visiting a tribal village. Why not stay at a hotel resort and enjoy all that Kenya has to offer.

Whether you want to relax and unwind or launch yourselves into the trip of a lifetime, there's so much to see and do in Kenya that you'll be spoilt for choice. Visit the Swahili coast which is a vibrant mix of Arab, Indian and African cultures. Explore the beautiful Island city of Lamu or the harbour City of Mombasa. Sail along the coast in a traditional Dhow or dive the clear reefs and see scores of extremely exotic brightly coloured fish. Hop on one of the crowded buses in Nairobi and visit the Masai market or experience a must do Safari which is one of the main appeals of Kenya. Whatever you see and do, a honeymoon in Kenya will give you plenty of memories to cherish.
