Our honeymoon will be a Safari adventure in Kenya and a relaxing trip to Zanzibar!
We are going to leave the 17th of July, two days after our big day.
Here is our preliminary program, day by day
Day 1 - 17 July
We will depart from Stockholm and land in Nairobi early in the morning the following day.
Day 2 - 18 July
On arrival into Nairobi, we will take the connecting flight to Zanzibar and go directly to Breezes, set on the East Coast of Zanzibar.
Breezes Beach Club is situated on a peaceful, pristine beach on the East coast of the island of Zanzibar,
an ideal escape for romantics and those needing to recharge their batteries and to be pampered by the friendly staff.
As a family owned and run hotel, Breezes is continually evolving in its efforts to make this one of the finest resorts in the world.
It offers a selection of al fresco restaurants and bars, a health club, marine activities,
massage and cultural entertainment, scuba diving and extensive sporting activities…all
this without compromising the relaxed yet elegant atmosphere which has become synonymous with the name Breezes.
The rooms, set in Plantation Villas strategically placed in the tropical gardens, are tastefully decorated in
Zanzibari style with ivory tones, cotton throws, teak wood finishes and local carvings.
Each room has a large balcony, perfect for more private sunbathing and from where to enjoy a
sundowner as the sunlight fades into the tropical night.
Breezes Beach Club's renowned chefs have created a fusion of Zanzibari and international cuisine,
fusing the just caught with the freshly picked and featuring some of the best seafood, tropical fruits,
and spices that the island has to offer.
Day 3-8 - 19-24 July
Chilling, diving, snorkeling, drinking a lot of drinks and relaxing... Enjoying our first days together as husband and wife.
Day 9 - 25 July
Time to leave paradise for the adventure of our lifes. Safari in Kenya...
Tavelling to Nairobi with an overnight.
Day 10 - 26 July
We will begin our safari adventure, by driving through the lush Kikuyu farmland to the edge of the Great Rift Valley.
We will then continue up north towards the Mount Kenya Region, to arrive at the lush forest of Mount Kenya.
Sailing like an ark above the rainforest's waxy-green canopy, the first sight of Mountain Lodge
sets the scene for the experience to come and provides a dramatic climax to the tantalizing approach up the lower slopes.
A timbered drawbridge leads from a winding path in the depths of the rainforest, over a moat of sun-dappled
jungle and up on to the wooden 'decks' of the forest-green, timbered lodge. Inside, the impression of having boarded
a ship is perpetuated by a combination of log panelled walls, timbered game-viewing decks and winding stairs leading
to a selection of snugly comfortable, cabin-styled rooms. Cool, tranquil and hushed for optimum game-sightings,
the open-air viewing-deck looks down onto the endlessly shifting scenes of the wildlife theatre that troops and
teems around the salt lick and waterhole below.
Come evening, the softly glowing lamps and warmly upholstered arm-chairs allow for
optimum night-viewing whilst for those in search of a really close wildlife encounter,
a special 'hide' has been built at the water hole's edge delivering once-in-a-lifetime closeness
to some of the world's rarest animals. Inside, the cosily-welcoming bar centres on a glowing fire and has
been tastefully decorated with traditional Kikuyu handicrafts and a series of sepia prints depicting the
traditional Kikuyu way of life.
The brightly renovated rooms, meanwhile, feature thick-pile locally woven rugs and wall-hangings,
luxury bathrooms and rough-hewn timbered balconies overlooking the waterhole whilst the décor has
been designed to provide glowing warmth and fireside comfort against the evening chill of this unique tropical mountain environment
The traditionally timbered dining room is surrounded by windows and has been built on stilts so
as to seemingly float above the liana-strung forest whilst commanding enchanting views over this primeval environment. T
he menu has been planned to offer a blend of traditionally hearty safari favourites, spicy ethnic cuisine,
crisp salads and internationally-themed dishes.
Day 11 - 27 July
After breakfast, we will drive south towards Nakuru, and the Great Rift Valley.
After descending the escarpment, we will drive along the floor of the Valley, to L. Nakuru,
passing by the Longonot Volcano, Lake Naivasha and Lake Elementeita.
Lake Nakuru is famous for its Pink flamingoes and many other types of birds.
There are also a number of wild animals in this park. Lake Nakuru National Park not
only boasts one of the world's greatest ornithological spectacles, with over 450 species of birds,
but it is also a sanctuary to the greatly endangered Black Rhino.
Situated in the heart of the Rift Valley, Lion Hill Lodge
nestles on the banks of one of East Africa's most famous soda lakes. I
t offers a unique vantage point overlooking the Lake and the distant hills.
Sarova Lion Lodge Wildlife conservation Adoption programme is in conjunction with The Kenya Wildlife Services,
which provides guests the rare opportunity to adopt their own Rhino.
The Rhino conservation began in 1987 with the allocation of 3 adult males (black Rhinos)
and ten white Rhinos from South Africa in 1990.
The Rhinos were an endangered species but with the conservation programme, the numbers of the Rhinos is picking up.
Sarova Hotels are concerned and involved with Conservation and Environmental issues and have contributed for
many years towards these worthy causes.
On August 1st 1999, SAROVA Hotels became part of a new Rhino Adoption Programme run by Kenya Wildlife Service (KWS),
by adopting a White Rhino calf born at Lake Nakuru National Park.
The adoption ceremony took place at Sarova Lion Hill Lodge, situated inside Lake Nakuru National Park. A
n official adoption certificate was presented and the two-month-old White Rhino calf was officially named "Sarova".
The Rhino Sanctuary Project at the Lake Nakuru National Park began in 1987 with the translocation of two adult males,
one from Kitengela (outside the Nairobi National Park) and another from Lewa Downs, a private game reserve.
Within three months, 15 Black Rhinos were introduced to the Park. By 1990, this programme was nearing its completion
with an additional four Black Rhinos, from Nairobi National Park and ten White Rhinos, from South Africa, being introduced.
Today, the Rhino Sanctuary Project is a success story with, approximately 45 Black Rhinos and 31 White Rhinos with
a further addition of one Black and one White Rhino calf born in June 1999.
Black and White Rhinos are still on the endangered species list despite protection in our National Parks. H
Here in Kenya we are lucky to have some of the most wonderful wildlife in the world, with help and support
we want to ensure our wildlife never appears on the extinct list.
Day 12-13 - 28-29 July
We will leave the Park, with a game drive en-route, to drive towards Narok, and the Masai Mara.
