The Kenya Coast - Safaris to the Kenya Coastline, Mombasa, Malindi and Lamu Beach Holidays
The Kenya coastline stretches beyond the old town of Lamu bordering with
Somalia to Tanzania in the south. In-between lies endless miles of gorgeous,
pristine beaches offering some of the most sophisticated, modern accommodation
in Africa. Unlike neighbouring Tanzania, dynamite blasting has not destroyed
the coastline. East Africa's first marine parks were gazetted here and
true to Kenya's conviction to preserve its natural heritage these areas
are well patrolled. Opportunities for snorkelling and scuba diving are
excellent, Kenya boasting a string of islands and some of the best coral
reefs in the world (on par with the Red Sea and Australias Great
Seeped in history,
Kenya acted as the stepping-stone into central, East Africa as far back
as 14th century when the Chinese and traders from the Far East discovered
its shores. What followed was a string of events leading to date. Portuguese
galleons, British explorers and missionaries such as Dr. David Livingstone
and the Arab slave trade are woven in a history of battles won and lost,
quests for treasure, the rise and fall of civilizations, crowned sultans,
great forts and palaces. The narrow streets of Mombasa Island and
Lamu are a living history book.
The Kenya coast is
best divided into four regions:
- Mombasa Island
and the immediate north coast resorts accessible via the Nyali Bridge.
- The Watamu, Malindi
areas further north (with Lamu further North, best reached by air).
- The South Coast
approximately one hours drive from Mombasa entailing a short ferry
(along the Tanzanian border) along the far reaches of Kenya's south coast.
The high standard
of accommodation found at the coast is no exception and ranges from self-catering
cottages to highly sophisticated hotels. Too numerous to mention we have
