Holidays in Kenya 2022 – prices, best beaches and hotels by the sea

For those who like to visit not the most popular places, but with a twist, consider a holiday in Kenya and find out how much the trip costs. What the reviews of the experienced say, find beaches for a great time and make a selection of the best hotels where you can stay with children or couples.

Kenya is not a leader among the countries receiving Russian tourists. But still thousands of people go there every year – and for good reason. It is necessary to know this country thoroughly, the basic details of travel through it to make the right choice and avoid mistakes. Some of the nuances of recreation planning and consider below.

Where to go to Kenya to rest?

Resorts of this state are clearly categorized according to the level of prestige, the most advanced travelers go to Mombasa. It has become a hub of luxury hotels, beaches and various institutions. If you want, you can always find relatively cheap accommodation, and all hotels are located along the coast – do not be afraid that some room is deep in the city.

A trip to Mombasa on their own is justified for lovers of lying on the sand, and for connoisseurs of the heritage of old times, and for those who would like to experience the nature of these places alive. In addition, the prices here are slightly higher than in other cities for tourist life.

Holidays in Kenya with children will be spent well if you visit the oceanarium and souvenir market, alcazar (a monument of the time of Portuguese colonization), national parks and nature reserves (the choice is great). A visit to Malindi reveals a highly developed tourism infrastructure and well-preserved cultural traditions.

Beach holidays in Malindi is quite accessible, there are a lot of proposals to go to sea on boats and boats. Nearby are ancient ruins, rain forests, a lot of interesting things to see and scuba diving. Reviews about holidays in Kenya and personal experience of visiting the state show that a visit to Lamu and Watamu opens this country from another unexpected angle. Fishermen and divers, lovers of leisurely walks through the woods and quiet streets go there.

Important: the locals are almost all Muslims, it’s worth considering when choosing clothing. We recommend wearing simple colors that won’t make you stand out in the crowd of locals. Of course, the famous products should not be taken with you, at least demonstratively.

Prices for holidays in Kenya

Now the planning of your vacation let’s find out how much money to take on a trip to Kenya, how much the flight will cost, which hotels in the first line is better to book, what kind of documents you need for the visa.

Flight tickets to Nairobi and Mombasa

When searching for cheap flights it is recommended to use Aviasales, as it searches among all airlines for low-cost flights in any direction.

A very important point – the cost of tickets to Kenya from Moscow. The flight to Nairobi on June 1 in economy class will cost one passenger at least 16000 rubles, and maximum – 25.4 thousand rubles (but it is the fastest flight). The flight will take off from Sheremetyevo, then in Dubai there will be a change to a Kenyan board, you can buy a seat for 16900.

A similar arrangement with a flight from Vnukovo will cost about 20000. The flight to Mombasa will cost at least 25000, and you can speed up your trip to the limit by paying 35 thousand. The reason is simple – an intermediate stop in the capital of Kenya is inevitable, and this increases the cost and lengthens the trip.

As in the previous case, the main routes are served by a combination of Qatari and African carriers. If you fly to Nairobi via Istanbul, you will have to pay about 25,000 rubles, and the flights of the Turkish carrier will take tourists to Mombasa for about 37,000 rubles.

Hotels in Kenya

Now let’s find the best places to stay in Kenya for a holiday near the sea and visit the sights, consider the best options in terms of accommodation costs and conditions.

Trip to Kenya

We recommend looking for the best value deals on RoomGuru, the search engine searches among all hotel bases and shows where you can book a room at the lowest price.

    In Mombasa – although not on the list of the best hotels in Kenya 5 stars, but its three stars works out fully.

Shuttle services are available for a fee, and the hotel is located directly on the white sand-covered beach. In between swimming in the sea and in the pool, you can share your experiences via wi-fi. For a variety of breakfasts and infrastructure a single traveler from Russia will pay from 23.2 thousand rubles (if the trip will last a week).

  • Sunrise Apartment Resort & Spa in Mombasa, in Nyali district, is no less attractive.

A modest hotel with very decent facilities. Rooms are well cleaned, polite staff is always ready to help, even if you have a dirty towel, they will easily replace it with one call from the room. You can stay there for 7 days for 28000 rub.

  • Bayern Holiday Home in Kilifi is ready to open its doors for the same period of time for 16 thousand rubles, and vacationers have access to 630 square meters of living space.

The beach is a 4-minute walk from the house, equipped with six bedrooms, thoughtful infrastructure.As for the peace and quiet, the garden alone is worth your attention for the evening gatherings of the whole family.

  • In Nairobi, the Wasini luxury hotel, decorated in a modern style, is worth a visit.

It takes 15 minutes to get to or from the airport. An improved single room with continental breakfast will cost tourists 36,000 rubles.

The best hotels in Kenya for recreation by resort towns:

The cost of food in stores and meals in cafes

It is impossible to know the cost of recreation in Kenya, if you do not pay attention to the cost of food in this country. You can have lunch or dinner at a cheap restaurant for about 230 rubles, and a visit to a mid-range place with a three-course meal for three will cost you 1300 rubles. Combination dinners at a place like McDonald’s will cost about 400 rubles.

Individual purchases of groceries in supermarkets will be more forgiving:

  • 0.33 liters of water can be bought for 32 rubles,
  • Up to 100 rubles are 400 grams of bread, or 1 liter of milk, or 1 kg of rice, tomatoes, potatoes, lettuce.
  • Chicken eggs are sold in packs of 12 and cost just over 100 rubles, and a chicken breast is three times more expensive.

You can have a cup of cappuccino coffee for 84 rubles, beer (0,5 l locally produced) – 90 rubles. There are almost 500 restaurants in Nairobi, but only “Carnivore” is obligatory. It is there you can taste the meat of specially bred African animals – ostriches, camels and even crocodiles. But those who want to order the most common food can also visit this institution.

The fees for food in the capital’s supermarkets are naturally higher than in the outlying towns. However, still 95% of tourists do not leave the confines of Nairobi and the main resort areas of the country. You can buy cheese for $8.50/kg, and a variety of fruit in the same amount is $1 – $1.5. Alcoholic beverages, especially spirits, are very expensive and almost all locals cannot afford them. Even for tourists with a relatively good income, buying them can be burdensome.

Transport prices

The cab itself costs 200 rubles to get into a cab, and a 1-hour ride costs 130 rubles. Cab drivers charge 300 rubles/hour for waiting. A liter of gasoline costs about 75 rubles.

You can get to the hotel from the airport of Kenya by a free car near the exit or pre-book a transfer through Kiwitaxi, which is especially important after a long flight with tired children and large luggage. The cost of the trip from Mombasa airport to the center will be about 2000 rubles for 4 adult tourists. Other destinations we look at on our own.

What to see in Kenya and Nairobi

You can rent a car in Kenya for every traveler, you can rent any car to your liking right at the airport. For example, a Toyota Auris will cost about 4,500 rubles for a day in Mombasa.

Visa to Kenya for Russians

A visa to Kenya for Russian citizens is always needed, you can get it by paying $50, the registration is done remotely or through official consular organizations.

It is obligatory to sign the application form in English.

Among the documents required for a visa is a passport and a personal photograph.

Will be let through the border only if accompanied by a visa is a passport valid for at least six months, confirmation of hotel reservation and tickets of return flights.

It is possible to travel to Rwanda and Uganda with a Kenyan visa, but the fee for a universal pass is about $100.

Best Beaches in Kenya

At the resort of Lamu do not count on an advanced beach vacation, there are no palm trees, one big pier with boats. A much better place to visit Shanza – the tides here, too, are very strong, but the bottom is covered with sand, not stones. The coastal strip looks nice. It is also worth visiting Mandu, especially since there are first-class hotels and interesting ruins of old towns nearby.

Those wishing to relax away from the main mass of tourists should visit Kilifi, where in addition to secluded beach corners attracts attention boating. It is also recommended to visit Bofa Beach.

Diani Beach is popular with swimmers all day long, the ebb and flow is not so typical for this place, but there is a problem: the gorgeous white sand is combined with the stone-covered bottom.

From Diani you can reach Galu beach, near the Blue Marlin Hotel, a place very attractive for a paradisiacal experience. On the outskirts of Mombasa, Nayali beach is better positioned than Bamburi beach.
