6 Best Bush Hotels In Kenya For A Honeymoon Getaway

A honeymoon is an experience that you can only have once and it has to be right.

Whether you plan on having a very chilled honeymoon or a super fancy one, it still needs to special. What better way to spend it than at a bush hotel which gives you the perfect environment to enjoy bonding and actually feel like you’re away from the city.

1. Elephant Bedroom Camp – Samburu National Reserve

If you have never been to Samburu then this is the place to go to. The camp is along Ewaso Nyiro River in the Samburu National Reserve. You may not like sleeping in a tent but Elephant Bedroom Camp has one of the best honeymoon offers that you could find.

2. Elsa’s Kopje – Meru National Park

Located in the heart Meru National Park, Elsa’s Kopje is one of the most romantic and beautifully styled lodges in Kenya. Each cottage overlooks the national park and if you’re brave enough you can take a hot bath in their bathtubs that overlook the park. Imagine being in a bathtub while watching elephants, lions and other wildlife?

3. Mara Explorer Camp – Masai Mara

This list would be incomplete if I didn’t mention the Masai Mara. The definition of a luxurious tented camp  is exactly what the Mara offers you. It is the ultimate place to view the big 5 and any other animal you could possibly think of. If you don’t want to be cooked up in your tent you have the option of going on game drives in their open sided safari jeeps.

4. Fairmont Mount Kenya Safari Club – Nanyuki

Nanyuki is really cold so this is the best place to keep your partner warm and happy. I don’t know about you but going to a place where Winston Churchill and Bing Crosby had been in already remarkable. The Fairmunt is just the place you’d want to be if you want to be in an elegant setting plus enjoy a romantic atmosphere.

5. Wileli House – Naivasha

This is when you want to avoid the hustle of going too far but still want a divine experience with your other half. It has five uniquely inspired chalets, a Bistro restaurant, Gift shop and Spa,
Each suite has a balcony with a private heated Jacuzzi. I wouldn’t say it is the perfect adventures place but a place to rejuvenate and reignite some sparks on. It is also a sister property to Naivasha Kongoni Lodge in case you want to check it out.
