About the neighbourhood
Vipingo has a notoriety for vast hectares of sisal plantations. The culture of its people is endearing to everyone who visits the region. Kenyans from all parts are the loveliest of people. You will find friendly, polite and helpful people in the area. The coast of Kenya stretches from Tanzania in the South to Somalia in the North. The beaches are unspoilt and idilic with fascinating wildlife all around. Local fishermen frequently bring their catch to your door at bargain prices. Part of Vipingo Beach has been designated as a wildlife reserve to protect especially turtles which come there at breeding time to lay their eggs.
How to get there
By taxi from Moi International Airport, ask to go to Vipingo Beach plot 43. The location is on the North Coast approx 30 kilometres from the airport. Driving from Mombasa take the Nyali bridge and drive along the Mombasa/Malindi road. Go through Mtwapa Creek. Go through Majengo. Carry on until you reach Kijipwa Police station on your lefthand side but carry on until you see a signed turning for Vipingo Beach on the righthand side about half a kilometre further on from the police station. The murram road will take you to a security gate about 2 km from the main road. Tell the security you have a booking for plot number 43. Follow the road keeping left, you will reach another security gate, again inform the guard you are staying at plot 43, show them your booking receipt. On entering the com...
