  1. A lobster tank? I see.

    He's missing out! A slow drive along the beach is so awesome that you forget the small issue of potholes.

    Karibu Mombasa all the same Mr. Allen.

  2. Personally i love the white sandy beaches as you head from Nyari to Mtwapa then Malindi...Mr Allen please step out! let NOT FEAR OF INSECURITY OR TERRORRISM STIFFLE YOUR ENJOYMENT OF LIFE after all there are thousands of tourists in the island enjoying themselves without undue concern as we speak!

  3. Very nice place. Kenyan are best in Athletics.
