5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent book for Travellers to Kenya, 19 Sept. 2011
By 
This review is from: The Rough Guide to Kenya (Paperback)
This is an excellent read for anyone travelling to Kenya for the first time as I will be in December. Very good price and extremely informative. At the moment I have found the section on flight information and discount flights the most useful. But overall the whole book is great and now I cannot wait to get on my flight in November and see the beautiful and exciting Kenya.

Thanks for this very encouraging feedback. The "Basics" is the part of the guide that often turns out to be the hardest to write - there's so much out there online to compete with info like flights and safari bookings -†so I'm glad you've found it useful. Do send feedback by my blogs, or direct to me, after your trip. Have a good one!

Acquia says:
Oh hello well as I am going for my birthday which is on Saturday December 3rd, can you recommend something special that I can do during the day time. I am looking forward to the Independence Celebrations on December 12th too. Is it expensive to call London from Kenya or vice versa as I have asked my contact in Mombasa for their phone details. Also which is the best - in your opinion - 3/4 star hotel in Mombasa. I am thinking of booking just a room with breakfast only as I imagine that I will be out all day and therefore eating out. Are the restaurants in Mombasa reasonable or is it best to book half board at the hotel?

Thanks in advance

Hi Acquia. Where in Kenya will you be in Kenya on Saturday Dec 3rd? Calling the UK from Kenya is relatively cheap on a Kenyan SIM card, but calling Kenya from here can be pricey. The best hotels in Mombasa town (assuming you don't mean somewhere along the beach resorts) are the Lotus and the New Palm Tree - no great shakes but reasonably clean, friendly and secure. I think the Lotus has the edge. I certainly wouldn't commit to eating dinner in the hotel though. You can always do that if you want to, without booking, but there are quite a few decent places to eat out in Mombasa. Tarboush is very good, reasonable, and close to both the Lotus and the New Palm Tree. There are plenty of others in the book.
