Mombasa & South Coast

The southern coast of Kenya is notable for its rich history and former Swahili settlements, its isolated islands, and of course, its beautiful beaches. Mombasa, Kenya's second largest city and coastal entrepot, has a lively atmosphere and charming Swahili architecture, though we recommend a stay in one of the quieter beach retreats or private island lodges outside the city.

Kenya Safari

Faultless. At all three camps the service was faultless and the staff leaned over backwards to help us.
