Kenyan love stories have been fascinating us all for generations. Even today, the great romance between Meryl Streep and Robert Redford in 1985’s Oscar-winning Out of Africa continues to inspire travelers to kindle their own passion in the heart of the continent! With notions of flying across the rolling hills in a yellow biplane or finding secluded and romantic spots above the endless plains of the Maasai Mara, romantic travelers find in Kenya the dream destination for recreating these iconic moments along with making new and unique memories together to treasure.
Recently I was able to travel through Kenya with my husband. Usually my safari is an action-packed adventure, but on this occasion it got dialed back a little. For the first time, being newly married, my safari focus was as much about enjoying time with my husband away from the hustle-and-bustle and sharing quiet moments as it was on finding great game.
Additionally, blessed with the flexibility of being able to enjoy the wilderness across Kenya’s multiple private conservancies, I was struck by the creativity and open-mindedness of our camp hosts and guides in their efforts to find special ways for us to experience the bush! Of course game drives are brilliant and wildlife spectacular, but outside this we had a great time trying new activities together.
