Not within walking distance from Nyali Beach. I would say a good 10 mins by taxi. The other local option is to hop on a matatu as far as the Reef Hotel, take a boda boda to Nakumatt and then another matatu down to Bamburi. Would cost you a fraction of a taxi fare.

About 10min by taxi. They have a courtesy car (an awesome red Army Jeep) which comes and picks you at the hotel. Just ask at the reception.

Travel Tips for Mombasa


by BerniShand

We enjoyed out holiday in Mombassa, sadly the safari planned for the end of our trip had to be cancelled as my son picked up an infection and was very ill so the doctor advised against the safari, but one day we will return to Kenya and take a safari the people we met were very friendly, this is my son with Jay one of the beach traders.
The traders can be very persistent, but if you are firm they eventually leave you alone
My daughter did get a little unwelcome attention, but after practising her karate moves with one of the guys who told her he was a black belt she didnt get pestered any more !

the grey city

by call_me_rhia

the grey city is where most of the half million of inhabitants of Mombasa live: small and tall grey buildings - most run down - and a couple of skyscrapers. Still I liked even this less colourful part: it seemed alive and deprived of desperation - even if generally speaking quie poor. I liked walking around - enjoying the markets and people - which were the only bits of colour in this vast grey-scape. Everyone always smiled - in spite of their problems. We surely have much to learn from them

The Mombasa slums

by croisbeauty

There are several huge areas with slums in the outskirts of the town, this one is in the northern part of Mombasa, along the road which lead to Bamburi and Shanzu where the tourist resorts are situated. This people live in a very bad and degrading conditions for a man kind, and great majority of them are jobless. Those who have small shops in this area barelly can repay their sold goods or services.
Must be very frustrating living in such a conditions, without running water, bathrooms, electricity, gas, tv-sets...., but most of all without regular and every day food supply. There is lot of criminality, prostitution, and all kind of sickness inside of this communities.
It is strongly recommended for whites to avoid this slums, because even the other locals avoid them.

Lightweight suitcases, but sturdy. They are thrown around at the airport like nothing on earth. Keep it light. During the day it is hot, even the nights are not cold. Any brand of toiletries and medical supplies can be found in the local supermarkets. I found that the local things worked best. Make sure you take plenty of film. You can get your films developed cheaply enough but film is expensive.

Snakes alive

by hurghadalady

The Snake Farm is quite something else. The most deadly snake in Africa is kept behind glass here. Whilst not a lover of snakes, I won't hurt them if they don't hurt me philosophy, this is well worth a visit.

They have a chameleon here which loves being held and stroked. It purrs just like a cat!
