Nairobi to Mombasa by bus? (final destination watamu)

Hi we're a french family with two kids. We'll be in nairobi in august and have rented a place in watamu. Guide books seem to say it's OK to go to mombasa by bus ( choosing a good company) but our contact in nairobi tells us it's unsafe and advise us to take planes or even a personal driver. I don't really know if planes are much safer and have no idea what a personal driver all the way would cost. I"m going to research that but would like to know what do you think of the bus option? Is it really crazy? Our kids are rather used to long bus routes and it's a way of discovering the country...


PS: we will get a cab from mombasa to watamu

Did you ever consider the Train? A great way to travel.
