Accommodation / Photos

   Trying to find clean and safe accommodation near the beach in Mombasa to bundled up nicely and comfortable tend to cost just that, a bundle of cash. And if on top of that you want it budget, well good luck. In Nyali that is as rare as unicorn poo. Unless you fancy sleeping in exactly the type of place where every scary movie is filmed – dim, flickering lights and strange noises, and be sure you’ll be the only guest in the building. Lucky for you…
