Diani Beach Vacation Packages
The national capital Nairobi is situated 280 miles (451 kilometers) northwest of Diani Beach.
Diani Beach is not the only place in Kenya worth seeing; DIY travelers should head off and experience the unique qualities of the surrounding scenery, cities and cultural attractions. While here, consider a trip to the Fort Jesus and Voyager Beach in and around Mombasa, about 17 miles (27 kilometers) to the south of Diani Beach.
If you want to stay indoors, you really can't go past Kenya's excellent craft workshops. These are great spots to soak up some of the local lore and culture and find a special gift or two.
There are times when one of the better ways to get a feel for a place is by hiring local guides. This region has a range of wildlife spotting tours and wildlife safaris.
Trying the food the locals eat is usually so much more than mere sustenance. It is also a way of understanding people's lives and places. Potato and also maize are commonly used ingredients in meals in this region. No journey through Kenya would be satisfying without experiencing the delights of ugali (cornmeal) and irio (mashed peas and potato mix). To end your Kenya experience, be sure to try chilled banana cream. At the end of your meal, kick back with a refreshing local Picana (mango juice).
When booking your holiday to Diani Beach, it's good to remember that the handiest major airport, Moi International Airport, is located in in Mombasa, 17 miles (27 kilometers) to the north.
