Elzemiek & Michiel


We took a fantastic trip through Kenya last summer with Charlies Travels. A truly unforgettable honeymoon. Our wishes were listened to very carefully: REAL Africa, no hordes of tourists, it doesn’t have to be super-deluxe, but it is our honeymoon. In a cool 4×4 rental car we drove to Mount Kenya where we spotted incredibly beautiful waterfalls while hiking. Then drove to Lake Naivasha & Hells gate where we did safaris by boat and bike(!). This was quite an adventure between the buffalo! We then drove on to Masai Mara for a Safari with a capital S where we were able to see an immense number of beautiful animals, including even a piece of the River crossings of the Great Migration.

Then it was time to brave the hills of Champagne Ridge in our car. A wonderful place to really unwind and not have to do anything for a while. Finally, we drove by car to Amboseli where we did one last safari: self-driving on a motorcycle! Then we returned our beloved car and took the train to the coast. In Watamu we were able to admire the beautiful underwater world during some wonderful dives. After diving, we were able to sit down at the most fun, hip and delicious restaurants in town.

Throughout the trip we were spoiled with beautiful (&and very clean!!) accommodations. Each time it was a gift to see where we had arrived again. Everywhere the food was delicious, the staff and locals very friendly and there was a nice atmosphere! The, almost daily, contact with Charlies Travels was also very pleasant. Lines of communication were short and help was always at hand.
