Things to do
It’s hard to beat your wedding day…but what better way to start married life than heading off on safari? Victoria and her husband Josh headed to Mahali Mzuri for the ultimate honeymoon adventure and here's what they go up to...
From the excitement of waking up at the crack of dawn in your luxury tent to waiting patiently for that first Big 5 sighting, it’s hard to beat! The wildlife in the Maasai Mara are certainly not shy, from the local residents (that’s the elephants, giraffes, buffalo, gazelles, impalas, topis and antelopes) through to those that hunt them (lions, cheetah, leopards, hyenas and many more) we were not short of game viewing!
For us the leopard was what we were looking out for. Our first sighting was on day two, we were looking for a notorious male leopard that had reportedly taken an antelope high into a tree and we found him as he jumped down from the tree and brushed right past the wheel of our game vehicle.
On our last day we spotted Figlet (the daughter of Fig who is well known by the guides) who was enjoying an afternoon of sunbathing up a tree and happily watched as we took her picture from below.
Honeymoon safaris are perfect for combining with a relaxing beach break and there’s no shortage of beautiful places to head to from the Mara. We chose the Seychelles but there’s the lovely local coastline such as Mombasa or venture slightly further afield to Zanzibar and Madagascar.
Ignite (or re-ignite!) the magic at Mahali Mzuri! Our Romance offer will ensure you'll both enjoy a mix exciting safari packed with wildlife sightings and adventure along with gourmet meals, fine wines and pampering guarantees an unforgettable getaway.
