Kenya tops many honeymooners' safari hit-lists, and Solio is ideal for those looking for a tranquil experience away from the crowds of the Masai Mara.

THE TOP 100 HONEYMOON DESTINATIONS

No sooner do you enter the 20,000-acre game reserve and rhino sanctuary than you are confronted with dazzling birds, while out on the plains, rhino graze alongside giraffe, zebra, waterbuck and impala.

The lodge is equally magical, decked out in burnt orange and emerald green hues, and so intimate - with only six suites - that you feel like house guests. After lunch, much of it from the lodge's kitchen garden, retire to your vast suite for a massage. After that, it's dawas cocktails (vodka, lime and honey) in front of the fire.

BEST ADVENTURE ESCAPES

WOW FACTOR: The Zebra Room, with its rooftop deck for private sundowners, dinners, yoga sessions and massages. And a night drive - the sudden sight of an eagle owl, lit up in the spotter's beam, is beyond exciting.
