Kenya has never failed to inspire and it charms everyone in an unexpected way! The honeymoon trip promises to be memorable, especially due to the strong emotion of an authentic photographic safari. This is perhaps the only region where the visitor can still see animals with the same abundance as they did centuries ago.
The best way to get to Kenya is to fly from São Paulo to Johannesburg in South Africa, and then continue on to Nairobi. From there are regular flights in small planes, or transfers in a 4×4 vehicle with a private driver and guide to the reservations for accommodation and photographic safaris.
Kenya really is an excellent place to define a luxury trip in the middle of the African savannah. The destination features the best of a safari on the African continent, from winding plains to an abundance of wildlife and the snowy peaks of Mount Kenya to the pristine beaches of the Indian Ocean. In the country’s nature reserves lives a powerful nomadic Masai pastoral tribe, with brightly colored costumes, adorned with large necklaces, earrings and headbands of very colorful beads, an impressive simple way of life, customs and beliefs that live in almost the same way as lived theirs ancestors, centuries ago.
The destination offers luxurious lodges (hotels) that house tents that are outrageously wonderful amid nature reserves. Produced from tarpaulins, they house art objects, comfortable beds, many books, a bathtub with hot water, a room with windows to the savanna and especially security. With exclusive accommodations, very high standards services, delicious gastronomy accompanied by an excellent wine list and unlimited pampering for the couple, such as: massage for two with a view of the savannah, breakfast or lunch served outdoors close to some animals or a romantic bath under the starry sky.
