YOUR ONE STOP TRAVEL SHOP FOR KENYA AND TANZANIA

SERVICE IS OUR BUSINESS, PLEASING IS OUR PLEASURE!

 

WE ARE HOPING TO BE BACK IN OUR OWN PREMISES BEFORE THE NEXT HIGH SEASON, SO STAY TUNED, MEANWHILE, OUR TRAVEL AND SAFARI TEAM ARE WORKING AS NORMAL,

Meanwhile we have extended our contract agreements with many of the region's hotels and lodges and can arrange accommodation in quality hotels and lodges at substantial savings, while still catering for all our Backpacker friends, in Nairobi, on safari and at the coast!!!

 

Nairobi Backpackers was opened in February 2001 with the aim of providing budget travellers with an alternative to staying in cheap downtown hotels (most of which are becoming decidedly “seedy”) or having to travel out of the city to established campsites. Since 2003, under new management, the facilities had been extensively improved and the number of people using the hostel had grown each month and repeat stays became common. A number of overland companies have been using the hostel as a drop-off point for passengers wanting affordable accommodation outside the city centre, and as an option to camping.

We pride ourselves on providing a "HOME AWAY FROM HOME" atmosphere and never saying "Sorry we are full!"

Unfortunately, in late 2007, when our lease on the property was due for renewal, it was refused.

We endeavour to find a suitable replacement property in a similar location, but it is not easy, as many of the similar properties have been bulldozed to make way for high rise buildings.

We will not give up our search as we feel that the loss of our property has left a gap that is not filled by any other accommodation.

"A little bit of home.... in the heart of Africa"

BEACH ACCOMMODATION AT DIANI BEACH

WE CAN OFFER ATTRACTIVE RATES AT MOST BEACH HOTELS AND ALSO NAIROBI HOTELS.

Also, Self Catering cottages by the beach at Diani Beach, about 40 minutes south of Mombasa..

Diani Beach is an 18 km long stretch of coast, with everything you need, but not all packed into a small area. There are a variety of restaurants offering, African, Asian, and European food, including one very famous restaurant which is built in a coral cave. Obviously it is called, "The Cave Restaurant".

There are supermarkets, internet cafes, bank, post office and a minibus service that is frequent and cheap.

From Diani, it is easy to take trips to places like Tiwi beach, Funzi Island or Chale Marine Reserve. Boat trips can also be taken here.

A self catering apartment gives you the flexibility to choose whether you eat out, or have an evening in.

They will also arrange a cook to prepare you a local delicasy of fresh caught fish in your cottage if required.

We can offer a choice of cottages as follows:

The place is at the quiet end of Diani beach, with pleasant beach and with very few beach boys. Beach boys can be a nuisance near the larger hotels.
