Yes, Ocean sports have a campsite, its within the grounds of the hotel near the tennis court, if you need any contact emails send me a pm and I,ll pass you the manageress's email for you. We love it at Ocean sports its such a lovely place with the best views of turtle bay by far ! a very relaxing place and very popular with local expats

I was told about Silver Sands camp site at Malindi. Small but right on the beach. Also some bandas. Also told the ground was flat, without bumps. Prefer a nice comfy bed myself!

Hi,

I'm told that you can camp at Camper’s Haven and Jamboree just the other side (south) of Kenyatta Public Beach from Bamburi beach. Though I was there twice a week or so ago and there were no tents - but then high season is just starting.

Also one of the smaller independant hotels on Namburi waqs advertising rooms at 1,600 bob, cant't remember which but could probably find out

Right Pjd,

Kendas Arcade hotel has really nice big rooms, clean and modern, with fan, (no A/C) for 1000 (single) and 1200 for a double. Good location just behind Casaurina and its own bar is very good, (its my local). Handy for matatu (25 bob) or about 500 for taxi to Bamburi. Only downside, can be a bit noisy at night, because of Casuarina and the Arcade bar.

Hadn't mentioned Mtwapa as I presumed they wanted the beach.
