There are many fun things that you can do in Malindi during the day. Because it is a coastal resort community, deep sea fishing is very popular with many of the tourists. The Indian Ocean has some great fish in it, and if you are skillful and lucky enough you will be able to catch some big ones. You can then take the fish home with you and have a restaurant prepare the food for you. Though there are many individual fishermen you can go to, there are larger groups as well. Some of these include, but are not limited to: Blue Water Sportsfishing Ltd , Captain Cook Ltd , Kingfisher Safaris , and Tropical Village . Malindi also has a number of marine parks and nature reserves which attract a large amount of tourists. Another very popular thing to do is go out on safaris in the wild. It is advisable to go out with a local guide or tour, as they will know the most important things about the region. Though you can often arrange longer safaris, you can also have one day safaris that will just give you a brief tour of the area. You need to keep in mind, however, that the animals might not be participating to your liking on the day you go, so you might want to go for a bit longer.
