Honeymoons in Kenya

Whether you're looking for romantic seclusion or want to dive head first into a frenzy of sightseeing and activity, you can choose either or both in Kenya.

Provided you have the right licence it is possible to get married almost anywhere in Kenya. Non Africans can only get married under the Marriage Act. A couple will need to notify both the Registrar's Office and the church they would like to get married in at least 2l days before the intended date of marriage. This normally requires obtaining a special licence from the Registrar of Marriages in order to conform with the Marriage Act. Both parties will need to bring valid passports, tourist visas, birth certificates, and a sworn statement of their marital status.
