Tours from Diani beach

Hi, I’m staying at Diani Beach from the 27th of November, unfortunately for only 9 days.

So I was wondering which trips are worth doing during these days, and which local tour operators are most reliable?

And also is it possible to do a 1 day safari? And is it better to bring cash or a credit card?

Thank you :)

I will not waste my time going to Shimba Hills yet there is nothing to see. Its even worth to visit the marine in wasini or have atleast a one night in Tsavo East if you real want to see some animals.

For a day activities have some solid cash in hand.

Local places to visit include

Shimba hills and sheldrick water falls,

for visit to water falls you must be inside the shimba hills park and reach the sign post for sheldrick at 10am or 2pm for organised walk with armed rangers to the water falls,

Its 40min walk downhill, then about 1 hour fun under the waterfalls with photo opportunity, then 40 mins walk uphill,

Atleast 2 hours of wild life viewing later,

Also visit and relax at the bar, restaurant and lodge inside shimba hills,

You have good info to make best of shimba hills park,

Sometimes you can negotiate good deals with Small taxi in Diani for shimba hills visit,

The wasini dolphin and snorkelling trip with picnic organised at the island, is always good fun,

I have been few times to wasini, with same tour operator, robert tours at marco polo shoping centre, next to neptube hotel in diani,


Diani beach has one of the most amazing views, location is always good fun place, a bit quiet but can get busy on weekends at fourty thieves beach bar.
