Does your sweetheart love birds?
A whole day, rolling in the grass and watching birds in the thickets of Kakamega forest is not a bad idea at all. Kenya’s forests and conservancies have very unique bird species that bird lovers can never get enough of.
Getting a lover, or a bird poster card is okay. Bring one to the birds, is a whole different kind of experience. Unforgettable!
Lakeside couples camping
A getaway to Lake Elementaita is the dream. Swimming in the warm waters of Lake Bogoria is on another level. Kiboko Bay on Lake Victoria is another top-notch destination. Alternatively, you can visit the floating library on Rusinga Island.
In other words, Kenya is home of so many lakes, each with a unique aura around it. You may want to sample every year, or a good number of them on Valentine’s Weekend. It starts on Wednesday this year.
Fancy love on the Road?

You drive through the winding green of Kericho tea estates. Everything and anything you and your loved one need is available in Kenya.
Tiny Luxury Lodges
Some small parks and conservancies have tiny tree houses that are cozy and intimate. This is a place to find new love or heal from the pain of love. Come Travel Kenya will organize a tiny luxury that will change your life.
Love and Food Could Epic
Sampling cuisines is an amazing way of spending Valentine’s. Nairobi offers various cultural foods ranging from Kenya Cuisines to Cuisines from the rest of Africa.

The Best Way to Love is to Spread it with Kindness
Visiting an animal orphanage, a conservancy or a slum is a great way of spreading love. Come Travel Kenya has a lineup of charity activities that you can take on as you visit Kenya this Valentine’s Day. You can go to the depths of the Korogochio slum and touch a life together with your loved one. You can also visit Adopt an Elephant at Nairobi Animal Orphanage.
All these or most of the above suggestions can be executed in the following top 5 Romantic destinations in Kenya.
The Drive to Sabuk Lodge is unforgettable. It is a haven tucked away in the Laikipia plateau. Here you will be in the vicinity of the Amboseli National Park and you can enjoy the Safaris here.
The best bit of it is watching the top of Mount Kilimanjaro, listening to the tunes of the flowing Ewaso Nyiro River and the bunch of activities offered at the lodge. You will be able to ride horses, go a Carmel Ride, go for excursions and even take a hike on Kansa Hills.
The game meat is something you don’t want to read about; you want to live it.
This Camp is still close to Amboseli. It is home of about 1500 elephants some of which are the biggest in Africa. The game drives on Tortilis are the most romantic. Romantic picnics under the Acacia Trees is something else. Here you get a textbook experience.
Diani is still the world’s most beautiful beach to date. The breeze, the pure white sands, the classy villa-style hotel and the picturesque landscapes are to die for. The Afrochic Villas have just ten cottages, meaning the earlier you book, the better.
If they don’t fall in love with you, they will fall in love with Diani. Love is love…
