Mamba Crocodile Village:
Mamba Village (#(011) 472709) is a crocodile farm where you can see newly born to full-grown crocs. Entry is KSh 400.
Bamburi Quarry Nature Trail:
About 15 minutes north of Mombasa is a reclaimed and reforested area once a quarry for cement production. Today you can see the beautiful landscape populated with many animal species. If you have some time, I recommend walking around for a while. Take a Nissan to Mtwapa and tell the tout you want to get off at Bamburi Nature Trail. It’s open from 2 pm to 5:30 daily and entry is a few hundred shillings.
If you’re staying in a hotel north of Mombasa it will probably already be pre-arranged in a package deal. Walk-in rates are quite expensive for normal facilities. Prices depend on whether you visit in high season or low season. High season is January, April through the beginning of July, then August through the beginning of September, and December.
If you’re traveling on a budget, there are a few choices. At Kikambala Beach you can stay at the Continental Beach Cottages (#(0125)32077) or Kikambala Cottages (#(0125)32032). Prices range from about KSh 700 to 1070 per person per night.
