Nairobi or Mombassa. I dont fancy the 3 hour drive from Mombassa to Tutle Bay. In the past it has been pos to fly London-Nairobi-Malindi.

I have searched flight sites and cant find anything into Malindi at all.

Thanks for your reply

You can also try Airkenya, who fly to Malindi daily from Wilson, via Lamu. It's about a 1hr 15 flight, usually on their Dash 8. www.airkenya.com

I am in the same situation: going to Turtle Bay. I will land in Nairobi and then what? Does Turtle Bay have a shuttle service? If so, from what airport? I can only see flights to Mombasa, or else, I will have to spend the night in an airport to fly to Malindi. I'm travelling with a 2.5 year-old child, so the fastest the better. Thanks!

Hi,

Nairobi is in the centre of the country, about 450 km / 280 miles from the coast. The vast majority of people going to the coast fly to Mombasa, (serviced by Kenya Airways, 7 flights a day, and Fly540, 4 flights a day, flight time 1 hour) a much smaller number fly to Malindi (details of flights above)

the majority of people going to Watamu (Turtle Bay) fly into Mombasa and then go by road

Watamu is about 120km / 75 miles north of Mombasa and 28 km / 17 miles south of Malindi

Thank you for your help...its great to be able to access this kind of help.

I have now booked to stay at DIani Sea Resort. Only cos for this trip (with father in law and 14 year old) it ticks all the boxes. I have stayed at Diani Sea Resort on our last trip to Kenya. Now I am in the middle of sorting our a little safari. I have emailed Pollmans as I have been with them before. What do you think on the safari front. I only want a short two day one night safari - a little taster for my father in law and son.

Thanks again for your help

You may want to check this site: www.mombasaairsafari.com/NewTimetable.html

Mombasa Air Safari flies from Mombasa to Malindi (seasonal flights) everyday at 16h30, arrives at 16h55.

For me it doesn't work since I'll be arriving in Mombasa at 23h30...I haven't heard from the hotel yet but apparently they can arrange for a shuttle.
