Kilifi is easy to get to, with scheduled flights into Mombasa (90 mins), Malindi (60 mins) or Vipingo (20 mins) away.
There is also an airstrip on the Kilifi Plantation 5 mins drive from Nderit for private charters and personal aircraft. We can organise airport transfers to take you directly to Nderit. If you would like more information on a private charter to and from Kilifi please click here.
The Kenyan Coast is warm all year round with highs of up to 32ºC and lows during the rainy season at night of 20ºC. We suggest you pack light breathable clothing, swimwear and light long tops and bottoms for the evenings. You will rarely need a sweater but a light cover might be comfortable for the breezy evenings.
There is some lovely snorkelling off the beach at the front of Nderit so masks and snorkels are advisable as well as reef shoes for the rocky parts of the shoreline. Even though we are at sea level the sun can be harsh so a good quality sunscreen, hat and sunglasses will help to protect. Shoes at Nderit are optional!
LAUNDRY & WATER
There is a full laundry service at Nderit. Personal laundry can be done for you and in general, will be back after 24 hours, weather permitting. However we do ask you to be mindful of your water usage and wastage. Nderit is well equipped with water storage tanks and also uses rainwater, but it can be in short supply in this area.
The drinking water in the glass bottles in the bedrooms are refilled every day from the bottled water dispense in the Kitchen. We recommend that if you are not used to Kenyan tap water, then you should also use this for brushing your teeth.
CONNECTIVITY & BACK UP POWER
There is free unlimited fibre wifi available to guests during their stay and also a good 3G and 4G Safaricom network. The library is home to a smart TV with numerous channels. You can also stream from your own online TV accounts.
For any power outages Nderit also has a large generator which is able to run the whole house including the A/C.
The Kenyan Coast is a Malaria zone which is a mosquito borne disease. Malaria is carried by a night time mosquito and if you are not taking any anti malarial medication we recommend covering up in the evening and using the mosquito nets provided. We also recommend you travel with medical cover on your insurance. There is an Aga Khan Clinic in Kilifi Town which is well equipped and with good medical staff for any emergencies.
