A Honeymoon to Remember: Exploring the Maasai Mara with African Spice Safaris

As I sit down to write this blog post, memories of my honeymoon game drive to Maasai Mara with my lovely wife Michelle flood my mind. We had a truly unforgettable experience thanks to African Spice Safaris, a company recommended to us by a family friend. From the moment we arrived in Nairobi, we were greeted with warm hospitality and exceptional service. Our stay at the luxurious Nairobi Serena Hotel was a perfect start to our journey. And as we ventured into the heart of the Maasai Mara, we couldn’t have been more excited for what was to come. This is A Honeymoon to Remember: Exploring the Maasai Mara with African Spice Safaris

Day 1: Arrival

My wife Michelle and I were thrilled to start our honeymoon game drive to the Maasai Mara, which was arranged by African Spice Safaris. We were picked up from our hotel in Nairobi early in the morning and set off on our adventure.

The drive to the Mara was beautiful, with rolling hills and lush greenery passing by outside the window. Our driver guide was knowledgeable and friendly, pointing out various landmarks and wildlife along the way.

After a few hours, we arrived at the Mara Serena Lodge, our home for the next four nights. The lodge was stunning, with breathtaking views of the Mara plains and a warm and welcoming staff. We were checked in quickly and escorted to our room, which was spacious and well-appointed.

We spent the rest of the day exploring the lodge’s facilities, taking in the scenery, and enjoying a delicious dinner at the on-site restaurant

Day 2: Game Drive

We woke up early on our second day to begin our game drive in the Maasai Mara. Our driver-guide was waiting for us, and we set off in our safari vehicle with excitement and anticipation.

Within minutes of entering the park, we were surrounded by an abundance of wildlife. We saw elephants, giraffes, zebras, and many other animals in their natural habitats. As we drove deeper into the park, we came across a cheetah lounging in the shade of a tree. We couldn’t believe our luck! We were able to observe the cheetah for several minutes before it got up and walked off into the distance.

After a few hours of game driving, we returned to the lodge for lunch and a bit of relaxation. The rest of the day was spent enjoying the lodge’s amenities and taking in the stunning scenery.

Day 3: Hot Air Balloon Ride

On our third day, we decided to take a hot air balloon ride over the Mara. It was an unforgettable experience, with breathtaking views of the park from above. We were able to see herds of wildebeest and zebras moving across the plains, as well as other animals like elephants and giraffes.

After the balloon ride, we returned to the lodge for breakfast and another game drive. We were fortunate enough to see lions, hyenas, and even a leopard hiding in a tree. It was incredible to be able to witness these animals in their natural habitat.

Day 4: Departure

Our final day in the Maasai Mara was bittersweet. We woke up early for a sunrise game drive and were able to see some of the animals we had missed earlier in the trip. As we drove through the park, we couldn’t help but feel grateful for the incredible experience we had had.

After the game drive, we returned to the lodge for breakfast and some last-minute relaxation before departing back to Nairobi. We were sad to leave the Maasai Mara and the Mara Serena Lodge but felt grateful for the memories we had made on our honeymoon game drive with African Spice Safaris.
