Ukunda Airstrip to Be Expanded


PLANS are underway to expand the Ukunda airstrip to accommodate larger planes and more visitors to the Kenyan south coast.

Good news!

Totally agree good news to re tarmac the road which would make the south coast more easily accessible - However do not agree with expanding/extending Ukunda airstrip - airstrip being exactly what it is ((flights from Wilson airport or to Masai Mara twice a day) - Its surrounded by local peoples homes, so where do they go?? can you imagine doing the same thing in the Mara or any other airstrip?? It would change the whole dynamics. -agree the south coast could be more easily accessible but why try & make it a carbon copy of the north coast? Having stayed many times at both resorts, Personally its not just the accessibility I take into account when staying on the south coast, They both have different things to offer & attract different people to each = for a slower pace, less people I choose the south, but also when I crave a faster pace, more people, night life, other things to see & a different way of life , I spend a few days on the north coast, & learn from both & the nice thing is, is doesnt take me days to get there - But thats just my view.
