Where is it?
Malindi is a town on Malindi Bay, in southeastern Kenya. It sits amid a string of tropical beaches dotted with hotels and resorts. Malindi Marine National Park and nearby Watamu Marine National Park are home to turtles and colorful fish. Arabuko-Sokoke Forest Reserve harbors elephants and more than 200 species of birds. Near the forest, the Gede Ruins are the remains of an ancient Swahili town.
The gateway to the Kenyan Coast is Mombasa, although some visitors fly directly to Malindi from Nairobi. The Coastal highway runs north of Mombasa all the way to Kenya's northern frontier. Driving your own car or hired car as far as Malindi is very easy. There are regular buses and matatus along the North coast. Private taxis from Mombasa will also take you to Malindi for an agreed fare. The road from Mombasa to Malindi is bumpy on some sections, but otherwise an easy and pleasant drive. This can be even be done by private Taxi/Minivan for no more than €100. (if you were to decide on this option, you could arrange for a pick-up at the airport) Malindi is located approx 1hr 30 minutes from Mombasa, a less than 30min flight from the Mombasa International Airport.
