turtle bay beach hotel

This is the first time I'm travelling to Kenya and to this hotel.

Are there cash machines in the hotel or nearby? Do the hotel exchange money?

Any advise on excusions? We won't want to go too far as are doing a 7 day safari before this hotel but don't want to miss out on the local area.

My daughter would love to go to an elephant orphanage, are there any nearby?

>> To the best of my knowledge, there aren't any Int. banks in Watamu, there's Imperial Bank (local bank) where you can change money

Do the hotel exchange money?

>>Yes, you will better rates in a bank or FX Bureau

Any advise on excusions?

>> Watamu - Mida Creek, Sokoke Reserve, Gede Ruins, Kipepeo Butterfly Project, Turtle Rehabilitation Centre

>> Malindi - Malindi town, Crocodile Farm, Robinson Island, Hell's Kitchen

All the rooms have safes which are provided free of charge and there are no elephant orphanages nearby the nearest is at Voi which is an 8 hour return trip.

The nearest elephant orphanage is in Nairobi I'm afraid so you'll not be close enough to visit - unless your safari starts in Nairobi and you have the spare time to visit. Opening hours are 11-12 daily.

the Voi orphanage you will be only allowed to if you are Forster Parent and with pre- arangement... in the afternoon 05.00 pm, which means you have to spent a night in Tsavo or outside in Voi, as you can not drive back at night ....
