I have been to Kilifi around three times in the past year and it has really started to grow on me! When I was there for the Kilifi NYE festival, I met people who were around for a short stay but had barely left the festival camping site!
If you ever go to Kilifi (which you really should by the way), here are a few suggestions of places you can visit.
1. Distant Relatives Ecolodge and Backpackers
I just cannot stress this enough! This place is the perfect place to chill for an afternoon, listen to good music and swim. The ambience here is really chilled and there is a cute dog (Mowgli) that may just keep you company. There are many spaces to lounge inside and outside. You can also get to walk to the nearby creek. They have nice bandas that you can sleep in too that I wrote about here
I hope the Musafir will be at the creek when you visit. They often travel and you can follow those travels on their Facebook page
When you want to spend the afternoon alone on the beach, Bofa is the place to go. Even during peak season, not too many people are on the beach. It can actually be all yours if you are lucky
I can’t wait to go back. Twende Kilifi! 😊
