Good Atm's Forex near Serena Hotel?

In the likelyhood of any blip at the airport when we arrive is there a good place to exchange cash in walking distance of Serena ( near walking distance as I use a stick). Also is it one where it is safe to withdraw cash?

We have a private car taking us from Moi to Pinewood Village the next week so I imagine it would be possible to ask him to stop enroute to top up our cash after the Mara ... where would people suggest a good place for this could be?

Thank you.

Jambo Mags,

when you are on the route from Moi Airport to Diani

ask the driver to stop at the ATM of the Barclays Bank Nkrumah road. (if it is on Day time before 03.00 pm you will have to pay the parking for the car which is kes. 50/-- for the ticket)

Next to the Barclays Bank is also a Forex the Maritime Forex where you will get a good rate. They are open from 09.00 am to 05.00 pm , on fridays lunchtime closed. Saturday 09.00 am to 12.00 noon.

Enjoy your stay

On the way to Pinewood:

I know you're in Mombasa, but surely it's much less hassle for blueamber's driver to stop at Barclays bank (with ATM) by the main junction on the Diani Beach road?
