      Hello, me and my girlfriend have booked to go to Kololi for new year, staying at the Palma Rima hotel, we are a little uncertain what to do about money exchange as we have been advised you can not exchange in the UK, we are really looking forward to our visit as it is not your usual package holiday. Is there a higher risk of being bitten by mosquito's in in late December early January? We have been advised using Deet and malarone, we do understand these are preventative measures, we are so looking forward to this holiday, maybe you could give us some recommendations of restaurants and places to visit...

      what are the best precautions to avoid mosquitoes in your room. considering a two week break in January. Do we need medication before we arrive. Do most hotels provide nets around the beds. is it wise to have recommended jabs.

      hi, we are going to kololi in feb, with first choice, and we have been collecting different items to take over for the schools, orphanages etc. we contacted first choice to see if we could be allowed a little extra weight allowance, just incase, but they said that it is not allowed unless it is done through a registered charity. can anyone help with any info on how we could even join a charity as we really would like to help out. we are planning to go to kenya later on in the year,and would like to take items with us also. any info would be grately appreciated, thanks. does anyone know of anywhere in kololi that would benefit of anything that we could take with us?

    • Holiday beach club hotel or Mansea??? Best things to do there?

      Kololi Nov 10, 2006 at 10:19 AM

      We're going to spend the new year at Kololi but not sure what holiday to choose between holiday beach and mansea. Mansea seems to be cheaper with H/B whereas the other is B/B only but...better maybe?
      Any suggestions?
      I've seen that the trip on the river is a must, what else?I found a post within interesting links for local foods.
      What to do for the night of the end of the year?
      What about the sockets and for rechargers etc?
      A plus if any locals will be able to let me know if there are shops for computers etc nearby and if the prices would be convenient compared to uk.
      Lastly...any website where I could find lots of pix of the area?

      Kololi Beach - Kairaba Hotel

      Kololi Nov 28, 2005 at 2:39 AM

      Staying at the Kairaba Hotel Kololi Beach late Feb early March 2006. Would like to get out into the bush to see local people/life and hopefully wildlife. Can anyone advise the best way to do this avoiding the international travel company excursions? Safe, knowledgeable local guides would be ideal. Also, good local restaurants within walking distance of the hotel for an occasional change of scene.
