Beautiful setting on the beach at Watamu, with a marine park in front of the hotel, crystal blue sea and white sand. Food at the hotel really was excellent. Staff were great. Used Acquaventures dive school at the hotel next door which was very professional. Saw lots, even sea turtles, particularly the second week when the visibility was better than the red sea. The whale sharks were visiting but sadly we did not see them. Went on safari with Gamewatchers to Porini Lion Camp in the Masai Mara, recommended for an authentic safari experience.
We travelled at the time of the political unrest and did not experience any problems, we were made to feel safe and welcome throughout the two weeks. The hotel and game parks were quiet, good for us but not good for the kenyan people. Kenya needs and deserves tourists.
