  • Malindi in March

    by moogk Online Now Jan 25, 2009 at 9:56 AM

    My husband and I will be staying in the Tranquility Apartments in Malindi. He's working for 4 weeks, I'm just along with no set plans. Is it safe for a woman on her own to go out walking, to a market? Were should I stay away from?
    Any advice or information would be much appreciated. Also if there is another woman going to Malindi in March on a visit maybe we could move around the city together.

    Going to Malindi in 3 weeks time for a fortnight. Primarily a beach holiday but we have got to do a short safari, preferably 1 or 2 nights Tsavo East/West? Any recommendations on reputable safari companies? Would be grateful for replies.

    Hi, was reading your review on Scorpio Villas, Malindi, Kenya and would like you to confirm that all 3 pools are saltwater? Was thinking of going there but there is no mention of this in any brochure/website. Thanks for your response, Sarah.

    Scorpio Villas

    by sheldon77 Online Now Feb 13, 2006 at 8:49 AM

    Hi again, I'm off to malindi at the end of April and am staying at the Scorpio Villas resort. The resort sounds wonderful, as they always do and I have read some good reviews about it in earlier years. Unfortunately, any recent reviews seem to be very negative and I'm a little dissapointed. These reviews were dated Jan 2006, and I was wondering if anyone has been there around this time and would like to comment on their stay. I'm hoping the negative views of a few people don't apply to everyone who has stayed their recently.Any reviews. positive or negative would be much appreciated. Thanks.

  • Mwembe Resort - Location & details needed

    by CdnTraveler Online Now Apr 29, 2005 at 6:07 AM


    I am considering booking a 1 week vacation at this resort as an add on after 2 weeeks on safari in September 2005. I would appreciate any information on their experience with this resort. I know it is not on the beach but understand they have a shuttle to town and their beach. How is the accomodation quality and safety. We are used to travelling in 5 star (north american standards). Is Malindi a relatively safe place to visit? Thanks to anyone who cares to share their thoughts.
