The Royal Connection: William proposed to Kate while the couple was on vacation here in October, 2010. "He's a true romantic and we had a wonderful holiday in Africa," Kate Middleton said about the trip. "[He proposed] in a very quiet lodge and it was very romantic and it was a very personal time for both of us."
If You Go: Stay in the heart of Masai Mara National Park, which offers excellent opportunities for wildlife watching. We like Governor's Camp, comprised of 37 luxury tents tucked along the banks of the Mara River (there's room service, so it's far from roughing it). For a truly awesome sight, visit between the months of July and October to get a bird's-eye view of the wildebeest migration via hot air balloon. Rates from $246 per person per night.
