Wildlife Wonderment, Part 3: Kenyan Safari

While it’s definitely acceptable to sit on a beach and sip a cocktail on your honeymoon, couples looking for adventure can instead (or additionally) take this opportunity to pack a lot into an action-packed honeymoon.

In the current issue of New Orleans Bride Magazine, travel editor Becca Hensley takes readers on a journey from kangaroo sightseeing to trailing the tigers of India in “Wildlife Wonderment.”

We decided to break down each locale into a “Let Them Eat Cake” miniseries. First, we headed to the depths of the Amazon. Then, we went down under to mainland Australia.

This week we’re hitting the trail on a Kenyan Safari.


Did you have an adventure-packed honeymoon? Let us know where you went in the comments below.



Kenyan Safari

Glimpse a baby elephant in the bush, and your life will be complete. Add in the undeniable romance of flitting across soulful Africa on a private plane, landing at remote, luxury campsites, and channeling the circa-1920 Hemingway heyday era when adventurers pitched their tents amid the grassy plains, filled them with civilized items from books to gramophones, and celebrated the end of their animal tracking expeditions each day with cocktails, as they watched the setting sun. Tackle Kenya in style with eco-conscious Elewana Collection’s SkySafari’s Kenya Connoisseur, an eight-day trip, which takes you to three camps in diverse reserves: Meru National Park, Loisaba Conservancy and the renowned Maasai Mara. skysafari.com
