          Hi, I recently booked a stay at Shambani Cottages, and have a few questions: 1. How hard is it to go there from Mombasa (and the other way around)? Is there some kind of bus service? What's the cost of such travel? 2. Are there any attractions organized nearby? (Safaris, trips to interesting places) 3. Is it really as dangerous after dusk/at night as other tourists say? Would it be dangerous to go to the beach at night? 4. Is it possible to get picked up by the Service from Mombasa? If so, what's the cost?
