    Additional Location Information
    This charming Lamu Arab style house which we call Samawati overlooks the Indian Ocean at Msambweni, 56 kms south of Mombasa, just off the tarmac road to Tanzania. If visiting by air, you would take a regular departure flight from Nairobi to Mombasa International Airport or the civil aerodrome at Ukunda (Diani Beach) only 25kms from Msambweni. It is ideally situated not only for a beach holiday with safe swimming and goggling, but also for visits to the Shimba Hills National Park, the Kisite Island Marine Park, Wasini Island, the Pemba Channel Fishing Club at Shimoni, Funzi Lagoon and other fascinating areas nearby.
