The beautiful Island of Londini in Kenya is known for its beautiful beach and for accommodation in Londini. It is also noted as the largest coral reef in the world. The Island has an impressive marine park for snorkelers. The nearby Indian Ocean coast is a popular beach destination in Kenya, with surfers coming from as far away as Australia. The Indian Ocean is known for large numbers of waves for surfing, and is also the home of the annual Nairobi High waves competition.
There are many popular places of interest on the island. The National Museum in Mombasa is a good example of a Kenyan museum. It was built in 1963 and houses a range of artifacts from ancient times to modern times. Other museums include the Kenyan African museum and the Liwa Masai Mara resort hotel which are well worth a visit for the variety of hotels available.
Accommodation is readily available both in town and along the beaches. There are hotels in Mombasa which are well placed by bus and rail, though many are available at more affordable rates when found on the cheap. For a more exclusive type of accommodation there are beach-front lodges and guest houses available to rent direct. These are a good alternative when planning a longer stay. There are also several places of worship and other tourist attractions close to Londini.
Another thing to take into account when planning your trip to Londi is how to get from the airport to the island. This will depend largely on the number of flights you need to take into the country and the number of hotels you want to stay in. Most hotels can arrange transport from the airport to the island, though it is worthwhile considering the cost and the long distance if possible. Alternatively, you could make your own way.
A good travel guide to Kenya is a must when planning a trip to Londi and beyond. It should include detailed maps of the area, recommendations for accommodation and transport and recommendations on visiting sites such as Lake Nakuru, the crater rim of the crater; the villages of Kilimanjaro, Langa, Mombasa and Malindi, as well as other locations including the cape. A good travel guide will also tell you how to reach the major tourist centers of Nairobi, Kilifi, Harare and Mombasa and how to get around between them. The cities of Nairobi, Mombasa, Kilifi and Harare are all on the UNESCO World Heritage List, so you will be spoilt for choice when choosing where to stay.
One thing that will be certain when planning your trip to Lendini is the climate. Londi receives heavy rainfall during the summer months and the west coast is subjected to sharp windy conditions from June to October, although it generally calms during the winter. It is best to book your hotels around half a year ahead to be assured of a room when it is your time to travel. Don’t forget to check out the many travel guides available, which cover all aspects of African travel, including lending.
