In Mombasa, a lot of cheap Muslim hotels. On average, they cost $ 10 for two people. A good hotel, not a Muslim, will cost two people $ 20. Anyone who likes five-star accommodations can find a lot of expensive hotels in the city.
You need to go or to the south of Mombasa, or to the north. In my view, beaches south of Mombasa, are more expensive and more dirty.
The most persistent people can take the bus and drive seven hours before the northern city of Lamu. This is one of the most interesting places on the coast of Kenya. The town is inhabited mostly from Arab countries.
Visitors can rent the palace belonging to Princess Caroline of Monaco! It is fairly cheap - $ 2000 per day, and it can be placed up to 12 people, thus, per person cost will sufficiently small. This palace, located on the coast of Lamu town. It is built in traditional Moorish style.
Princess of Monaco owned several hotels. Where to stay in them was worth about 50 - 70 euro per person. The budget traveler can expect an average of 20 euro to rent a room in the same house, but a little lower class.
What is interesting is this place? There is a very long white beach that stretches for 10 -12 miles, very few people are staying there, and they are among the most beautiful beach in the world.
The land there is in great demand. One acre of land on the date for those wishing to buy is worth somewhere 60,000 euro per acre. Compared with 2006 the price has tripled. In 2006 it cost 20 thousand euro. It settles a lot of immigrants from Europe: from France, Italy. Britain ...
If you are bored with the beaches, you can go on safari in the Masai Reserve, National Park Masai Mara dam.
Another very interesting topic - is Lake Naivasha. It is located in the north of Nairobi and from Nairobi and a half hour drive. Interesting lake because there is a National Park "Gates of Hell" (so named because it a large number of rocks and hot bubbling, sources and cosmic landscapes).
Log there is around 20 dollars. To visit this national park, you can hire a bike, but since there is a very bad road, it is better to take a car to get to the most interesting places in this national park. There is also a very beautiful lake. Large lake Naivasha which is constantly crowded with hippos, flying a variety of birds: cranes, pelicans ...
If you are not interested in Kenya, you can choose the western city - Kisumu, which is located on the shores of Lake Victoria. This place - the third largest city in Kenya, he too is on the equator, but at sea level, so there is quite humid and hot. There are very friendly people. Everyone is smiling, not trying to sell something and just talk to you for your interest, because very few see the European people.
