Scene of the Royal engagement

Kate said 'Yes!' while on safari in the wilds of Kenya.

Lewa Safari Camp

Looking for a romantic place to pop the question? Here’s where the Royal proposal took place.


Prince William and Kate Middleton got engaged while on holiday with friends at Lewa Safari Camp, a 12-tent camp in the foothills of Mount Kenya.

Tents at Lewa each have a thatched roof, en-suite bathroom and private verandah. When you’re not out on game drives, you can enjoy a dip in the camp’s swimming pool, or relax in the lounge and gardens.

Try a bush breakfast or sundowner excursion with wine for a truly unforgettable safari moment to pop the question.

Romantic though it sounds, if you’re planning a safari proposal, do be prepared for early starts as dawn is usually the best time for spotting wildlife.

Lewa Safari Camp is based within the private 65,000 acre wildlife conservancy of the Lewa Wilderness Trust, home to some 10% of Kenya’s black rhino population.

You’re also likely to see elephant, lions, leopard and cheetah during your stay, as well as the graceful giraffe and gerenuk.
