As soon as you step off the plane, you will feel like you've stepped straight onto the movie set for Out of Africa (best you be wearing your classiest Khakis, dah-ling!). However, here you'll witness an even better show than the classic African film. Yes, that's right — part of The Great Migration takes place in Kenya's fairytale-like landscapes.
Kenya is also versatile, with diverse landscapes promising various exciting activities. Going on Big 5 safari drives to hiking or exploring the cultural ways of the local Masaai tribes, it promises to be an enlightening trip. Although homosexuality is illegal in Kenya, tourists are exempt and can freely explore the country with our hand-picked service providers.
Homosexuality is not legal in Kenya, and same-sex marriage is not recognised. However, tourists in designated areas are free to do as they please as long as guests are respectful of local regulations when out in public.
You can have that dream East African safari in Kenya as a gay couple! Even though the law is against homosexuality, gay tourists are welcome. When booking with Out2Africa, we book you into the top gay-friendly accommodation options. While you are staying and touring with our service providers, you can let your hair down and enjoy each other! However, when it comes to arriving at the airport and moving around in public spaces, you should avoid public displays of affection.
Adding Tanzania to your East African itinerary is a no-brainer! How about an exciting gorilla trekking expedition in Rwanda? Of course, your holiday is also not complete without stepping foot in Cape Town, Africa's Gay Capital. Here you can party the night away at the best gay-only establishments, indulge your inner foodie, and bronze your body on the beach. What's not to love? You can also easily add on Victoria Falls and a luxury Big 5 safari at Kruger National Park to your trip.
Safaris are by far the most gay-friendly as the wildlife won't judge who you love! You can also go on incredibly romantic hot air balloon rides to get a different vantage point of the East African plains. If hiking is your thing, you can take your pick of routes.
Whether you want the full-on authentic East African glamping experience or a six-star lodge, we've got the place for you.
