      I'll be visiting Kenya next month and I would love to see Mombasa, even for a day.

      Most Western governments issue warnings for terrorism etc. Are these warnings legitimate? Will I be unsafe visiting Mombasa?

      Obviously, I understand there are risks in visiting most large African city, but I don't exactly want to do something that would be stupid. Looking for some fresh info if anyone has!

    • Safe travel from Diani to Mombassa Airport

      Mombasa May 16, 2014 at 3:07 AM


      I am going to a friends wedding in July in Diani beach. We were planning on getting the overnight train from Nairobi-Mombassa for the experience and then flying back from Mombassa to Nairobi (flights already booked and paid for).

      However, in light of the recent FCO guidance changing, I'm a little nervous to go through Mombassa Island. I'm considering booking a flight down from Nairobi to Diani with Airkenya. Since I have already booked the return journey from Mombassa aiport, does anyone know if there is a way of getting from Diani to Mombassa Moi airport without going through Mombassa Island?

      Thanks in advance.

      We're staying in Malindi and have to find transfers. I was wondering if any one knew which would be a better choice, Nairobi or Mombassa. Also if we flew into Nairobi are there flight out of there everyday? We live in Canada, how would we even go about booking flights from here. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

      Hello! I with my girlfriend need to get from Mombasa to Nairobi at first half of march, wanted to ask about best options...Train and bus will be cheapest, but takes a lot of time, than I thought maybe go by plane, 90$ per person isn't very much and it's a lot of time economy...but question is, maybe somone knows how much will be to get to Nairobi by car and driver, and fact is that we need to go only one way and we're just two, because if we were 3 or 4 IMO it was definetly cheeper than go by plane.... Thnx....

      Hello everybody,
      April should be one of the wettest months of the year in Kenya, but does it rain during the day or at night, can you compare it with the tropical rains (rain all day long) in central Africa? I’m planning a Mombassa trip in April and it is too long ago for me to remember the local climate. Is it OK to plan a beach and safari holiday during this period???
      Thanks fellow travellers.
