      This is another hip hang out spot in Stone Town. It is a great place for sun downers, but also a luxurious dinner, and evening drinks. There is a bar inside for being social, or take a table outside ... read more

      I would rate this a must do in Stone Town. It is just a cool experience. You go into the family's home, and they prepare like five or six special Swahili home cooked dishes for you to try. They are ... read more

      This place is only about a ten minute walk from Forodhani park, and is a solid value for the price. The rooms are small, but tasteful, clean and comfortable. There is a little rooftop breakfast area, ... read more

      A solid mid-range option for a business traveler, or a tourist, trying to avoid the traffic of downtown. Located on the peninsula, right on the water, there is a tastefully designed pool, and a ... read more
      shopping center, bank and handful on restaurants right on site for your convenience. The beds are comfortable, and the rooms are nice, but you will have to deal with little details like out of date TVs, and marginal showers.

    • Camp Carnelley'sLake Naivasha, Naivasha, Kenya
      Pro 2014
      Nomadic by Nature recommended Camp Carnelley's
      4
      This place is just cool. The best deal is to roll out with gear, and do some car camping in the grassy field covered by huge acacia trees, however there is some housing with shared bathrooms, and some ... read more
      rather expensive but very nice private bandas (cottages), which can be rented. The is right on the lake which provides nice views, and is also located very close to the entrance to Hell's Gate National Park. They also have a very cool restaurant with cruisy couches, a brick pizza oven, flat screen TVs and a fine bar. If you are deciding between Fisherman's Carnelley's and Fish Eagle, as they are all adjacent camping spots, Carnelley's the the prettiest, and has the best restaurant, although Fisherman's does have a popular bar, and is more popular with overlanders. Fish Eagle does have a small swimming pool, but it is not enough to put it in the competition.

      Nomadic by Nature recommended Mount Longonot National Park

      The hike-up is short but steep and keep an eye out for buffalo in the beginning plains. The view from the rim is incredible, right down into the middle of the crater where there is now a lot of ... read more
      shrubs, and the occasional grazing animal. The walk around the rim has one arduous climb but offers great views back over Lake Naivasha and the whole rift valley. To do the whole hike, it should take you about an hour to get to the rim, then about three and a half to get around it, and then a short 30-45 minutes back down the slope to the car, so it is about five hours total. Or just 1.5 hours to get to the rim and back. Take a day and do this wonderful hike!

      Nomadic by Nature recommended Kilifi Creek Coastal Walk

      This is just an idea for a beautiful self-guided little walk along the shoreline. You have to figure out when its low-tide, and start your walk maybe an hour or so before it, as the tide is still ... read more
      going out, otherwise there will not be enough exposed beach on which to walk. Start from the Mnarani Club beach, and walk out toward the point along the beach. There is a string of small secluded beaches along this shore, some with jutting limestone monoliths, and others with luxury villas draped in bougainvillea, and framed by bulging baobab trees. I would leave a couple hours for this, so you can stop and take pictures at will, and also have a little dip in the aqua-blue waters, and bake in the sun. If you make it out all the way around the point, there is a little bat cave to explore too.

      This spot is not to be missed, and really one could go every night of the week and have a great time. The food is tasty, check out their steak for sure, and there are plenty of bars and outdoor ... read more
      seating in the back for music and a little crowd or in the front for an intimate conversation. Definitely check out the tree house too, and try to stay out of trouble up there...or not. Monday is two for one dinners, so a great night to go. Reggae on Tuesdays, and movie night Wednesday on a huge screen outside.

      Situated in the middle of paradise it offers bungalows with shared bathrooms, or en-suite. Everything is positioned back from the beach, except for the restaurant and bar. The food is decent, but the ... read more
      portions are a bit lacking and prices are high compared to similar offerings in town or up north along the beach. The staff are friendly, the rooms are clean and everything feels safe. It is really a place for laying on the beach during the day, and partying late into the night once the sun goes down. Saturday night they throw a big party with impressive break dancing and a memorable Michael Jackson impersonator. Bring your dancing shoes and a snorkel mask, supposedly there are seahorses in the sea-grass off the beach.
