Honeymoon Dreams: Masai Mara & Zanzibar

Whilst lounging on a beach for two weeks sounds like heaven for some couples, others like the thought of exploring different cultures, traditions and landmarks. In our eyes a Honeymoon to Africa, taking in the Masai Mara and Zanzibar has no comparison.

Beginning with a flight from Heathrow, pre-book a lounge and relax in style before you take off to Masai Mara via Kenya. The flight time is just under 9 hours, when you reach Kenya, you will take a smaller plane to the Masai Mara, which takes around an hour.

Upon arrival you will be whisked by a private transfer to the breathtaking Mara Bushtops resort; a Kuoni exclusive property that exudes luxury and romance. The Masai Mara is a wildlife haven and a honeymoon paradise all in one.

Situated on the edge of the National Reserve, the resort ensures honeymoons have the holiday of a lifetime. Guests enjoy spectacular views of the Masai Mara and beyond. Each of the twelve enchanting tents at the Mara Bushtops are designed to maximise privacy.

Nestled on the side of a hill, each tent has a large deck area with a private, sunken hot tub. It doesn’t take much imagination to visualise you and your newlywed relaxing in your hot tub, watching the sunset in one of the most beautiful areas of the world.

Throughout your four-night stay at the Mara Bushtops, you will be taken on two game drives each day (either early morning, lunchtime or evening). The Game drives take place in an open 4×4 with an experienced ranger and a local Masai spotter.

Guests venture out into the largest animal migration area in Africa and possibly the world, depending on your time of travel you can see hundreds of animals travelling across the Masai Mara.

The Mara Bushtops also offers night drives, bird watching, balloon safaris, bush walks and picnics. If all that gets too much, you can relax in the Bushtops swimming pool, lounge or bar. The luxury safari resort is all-inclusive meaning meals, drinks, massages, laundry and the twice-daily game drives are included.

We recommend you book a hot-air balloon safari from the resort. It really is a once in a lifetime experience, birds-eye views of the natural reserve are spectacular and gives you the chance to see even more wildlife and animals.

Dining at the Mara Bushtops takes place overlooking the water hole and the campfire located just outside the restaurant. Breakfast is served at 7am, letting you get out early to enjoy a game drive. Lunch is served from noon, depending on the activities you have chosen for that day. Dinner is served from 7.30pm.
