Offering pristine, palm-lined beaches, all-inclusive resorts, and warm, sunny weather, the port town of Malindi rightly established itself as one of Kenya's prime tourism spots.
Explore hidden gems such as Malindi and Mangrove Boardwalk Mida Creek. Go for a jaunt from Malindi to Watamu to see Mida Creek about 42 minutes away. There's lots more to do: see exotic creatures in open habitats at a safari tour, take in the dramatic natural features at Marafa-Hells Kitchen, enjoy the sand and surf at Watamu Beach, and get engrossed in the history at Gede Ruins.

Before you visit Malindi, use our trip planner to discover what you can do and see there.

Cairo, Egypt to Malindi is an approximately 14.5-hour combination of flight and car. You can also drive. Due to the time zone difference, you'll lose 1 hour traveling from Cairo to Malindi. When traveling from Cairo in August, plan for a bit cooler days and about the same nights in Malindi: temperatures range from 32°C by day to 27°C at night. Cap off your sightseeing on the 31st (Sat) early enough to go by car to Mombasa.

Mombasa

Mombasa rests on the exotic shores of the Indian Ocean and serves as a globally popular vacation destination thanks to its classy hotels and friendly and relaxed atmosphere.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Shree Cutch Satsang Swaminarayan Temple and Imani Collective. Change things up with a short trip to Safaris in Diani Beach (about 1h 20 min away). Spend the 1st (Sun) wandering through the wild on a nature and wildlife tour. There's more to do: get interesting insight from Tours.

To see reviews, maps, more things to do, and more tourist information, go to the Mombasa online holiday planner.

Getting from Malindi to Mombasa by car takes about 2.5 hours. Other options: take a bus. Expect slightly colder evenings in Mombasa when traveling from Malindi in August, with lows around 24°C. Wrap up your sightseeing by early afternoon on the 3rd (Tue) to allow enough time to travel back home.
