Where We Are
Where we are
Malindi, although rather unsophisticated and still a developing town, retains much of its Swahili charm and Arabic influences.
It offers a variety of hotels, restaurants, shops, banks, 2 casinos and a busy market. There is much of interest in and around Malindi, internationally renowned for its big game fishing and its beautiful marine parks.
Nearby, horse-riding, sailing, wind surfing, diving, snorkeling, golf and tennis are available.
The charming Islamic village of Mambrui with its huge white sand beaches and dunes and excellent restaurants is a short drive away as are the fascinating ruins of the “Lost City of Gedi”, which the inhabitants inexplicably abandoned in the 17th or 18th centuries.
Watamu, a fishing and diving center with a magnificent marine park and white sandy beaches, is approximately 20 min drive away.
For the more imaginative traveller, Kenya is a beautiful land of contrasts and if you want to combine a stay at the coast with a safari to see the amazing wildlife of East Africa, there are a few better places.
The East African region is a monsoon type of climate with warm summers and temperate winters.
