The Detailed 5-Day Honeymoon Safari in the Mara Itinerary

Here is the detailed honeymoon itinerary that sees you spend 4-night in Masai Mara as you explore the best of Kenya’s wildlife safari. We also invite you to check out our 14-Day High-End Honeymoon Safari that takes you to different parts of Kenya.

Day 1: Arrival in Nairobi, Road Trip to Masai Mara, & Afternoon Game Drive

For logistics reasons, you are advised to book a flight that lands in the country by 6:00 A.M. This is not etched in stone, though, for we are a company that takes pride in its flexibility. Our guide picks you up upon arrival, gives you a brief of your safari over coffee, and off you are to the land of golden sunsets.

Our 5-hour trip is not without event, the spectacular Great Rift Valley Viewpoint taking our breaths away with its colourful bird arrays and lush escarpments. Narok taking our taste buds on an adventure of their own with its savoury delicacies. 

We are in the park four hours later, and you are checked into the Basecamp Masai Mara within half that time. For two hours, you and your lover are left to florrick in the cosiness of your room and the riveting views it affords.

We pick you up later for an exciting evening game drive of the Mara. Toast to colourful sunsets from your Land Cruiser, marvel at the nearly endless wildlife, and wrap yourself around each other, sharing in the beauty of the Mara landscape.

Day 2: Full-Day Game Drives in a 4×4 Open-Top Land Cruiser

In bed, at your room’s terrace with the effortless sunrise as your background or at the restaurant offering soul-stirring views of the Talek River?  The choice of where to have your breakfast is up to you two. 

We are at your door a few hours later, ready to treat you to what we believe is the most exhilarating of safari experiences. Apart from the gripping sunrise, morning game drives are unparalleled when it comes to their wildlife. 

Thousands of species trample the savannah and skies alike, the Big Five, gazelles, antelopes, hippos, crocodiles, wildebeest, sunbirds, vultures, hornbills,  giraffes, etc. The morning game drive turns otherworldly for those who get to experience its magic between July to October. 

The Wildebeest Migration falls within these months and is an electrifying event that features over a million wildebeests, zebras, and a handful of bloodthirsty predators. Ours is to ensure that you are at a vantage point when the spectacle ensues. We take to the shade of one of Mara’s acacia trees for our lunch. 

It makes zero sense how everything so breathtaking could be found in one place. From sunburned savannahs, scattered acacias, and plentiful wildlife, everything is remarkable here. Our afternoon game drive uncovers treasure after treasure worth mentioning the Oloololo viewpoint and the hippo favourite Mara River. 

The party continues into the evening when we are yet again charmed, speechless by the sunset. This is the moment when you wrap her around your arms and promise the earth.

Day 3: Optional Hot-Air Balloon/Spend the Day by Yourselves

The Mara was made for you to explore, and towards this end is a rip-roaring hot-air balloon safari across its landscape. We pick you from camp at 5:00 A.M and drop you off at the ride’s take-off point just in time for sunrise. 

Everything about this ride is effortless; the scenery, the close wildlife encounters, the way the cold air softly brushes against your skin. Everything! For an hour, you are given an out-of-the-world encounter of the Mara, and who better to experience this with you than the love of your life. 

Staying true to its luxe ways, the ride ends with a sumptuous breakfast served amongst the tall grasslands of the Mara. We pick you up after breakfast and drive you back to the camp. Escape to a world of total comfort and luxury in your room, or watch the Mara bustle with activity from your private balcony. 

If lush surroundings and breathtaking panorama sound like a plan, take a guided walk around the park. Soft jazz music, rose petals on the bed, a bottle of champagne, her favourite movie and her favourite meal: this is your chance to surprise her with a romantic dinner.

Day 4: Full-Day Game Drives in a 4×4 Open-Top Land Cruiser

Wake up to a symphony of bird songs next to the one you love, and join us on yet another euphoric morning game drive. You will find that no two game drives are alike- that the Mara always has a surprise up its sleeves.  

Our silver/gold-certified guides also know where in the Mara the action is packed, and so it’s only fun and discoveries for your game drive. We wind our way through the open grasslands searching for the wildlife that escaped us in previous rides. Who knows, the highly elusive leopard might also decide to show up. 

Our game drives span the day, one of the highlights being a beautiful sundowner. When night falls, we gather around a bonfire, share stories, indulge in a couple of beers and stargaze. If you want a night away from the crowds, you can have dinner served in your room.

Day 5: Morning Game Drive, Masai Village Visit, & Trip Back to Nairob

The Mara is perfection at its best, and we yet again dedicate our early morning to its grandeur. We embark at the first light of dawn, our sights still set on its diverse wildlife and alluring scenery.

After breakfast, we check out the hotel and head out for this morning game drive at around 6 AM to about 10 AM, the ideal time to head to Maasai Village. A cultural tour of the Maasai villages exposes you to different cultural activities, beliefs and experiences. 

The Masai’s cow dung and mud houses are a thing of beauty and their artwork and stories of survival. Participate in the Adamu( Masai jumping dance)and purchase their colourful beadwork and leatherwork. 

Our visit lasts for about two hours, after which we hop on our Land Cruiser and drive back to Nairobi. We are received by the masterminds behind our honeymoon itinerary with whom you indulge in a cup of coffee. Do tell us what you thought about the trip.

We bid you goodbye and see you off to your flight back home. You can check our 8-Day Kenya Honeymoon Safari if you wish to spend more time in this country.
