As the Valentine’s Day draws closer, you might have received a suggestion from your lover on where they want to be taken.

A hike is cool. The problem that sets in is where to go, yet you just want to keep yourself around Nairobi.

Arguably, you have not exhausted the best and romantic places in the city. Forget about Karura forest and Arboretum for a while. Thousands head here to spend their time, they may disrupt your day.

Here are four spectacular places where you can take your lover, relax, and even propose to her.

Maasai Mara

You can never go wrong by indulging in a weekend of elegance at the finest safari destination in Kenya. If you love adventure, take a walk around this Maasai dominated destination. Go and meet them, see how they jump, and probably get a few ornaments made in the strips of Kenyan flag’s colors.

This is not only an amazing way to celebrate Valentine’s Day, but also an affordably luxurious ride altogether.

The area has widely tented camps, especially in Mara, where you can enjoy a romantic safari experience with stunning views and beautiful wildlife. Masai Mara offers an undiluted romantic experience.

Mambo Italia

If you are within Nairobi, probably you have to try this James Gichuru Road based scenery. You will fondly experience love in the air at Mambo Italia. The menu served is a spectacular one.

Ensure you accompany your new girlfriend or boyfriend to this new world of romance. The restaurant features wooden art pieces and furniture with textured walls.

It can form a cute background wall for your photos, remember to carry that selfie stick for this.

Tamambo Karen Blixen Restaurant

Here, you will obviously radiate romance. I must mention here that this is a disturbingly amazing dining location. The vision of sitting in the midst of the oldest and largest gardens in Kenya screams romance.

This coming Valentine’s Day, make a point to head to this Karen based Grogan House. The place is cosy and peaceful setting.

You can unwind from here as you prepare to resume the heavy tasks in your office.

Lang’ata Botanical Gardens

Take a break from the noisy town and head to Lang’ata Botanical gardens. This place is never full of people, but again not deserted. Why would you shout to your lover, its needs you to be calm to speak to their heart. This is a serene place.

It is a walk out to one of the oldest places in Kenya. Surrounded by a park, the garden inspires romance with its botanical arrangements and beautiful layout.

The atmosphere here is terribly romantic. I would instead urge someone to go propose from here. You don’t have to be turned down. Not here.

This Is one of the best walks you will ever take. There is a restaurant in the Garden, where you can enjoy a romantic meal with your heartthrob.
