WHAT HAPPENS WHEN I ARRIVE?
You will be picked up from Nairobi airport by a friendly local Frontier representative. You will usually spend a night in the Kenyan capital to recover from your international flight before taking the comfortable coach ride to the coast and Malindi.
If you prefer, you can fly directly to Mombasa and we will arrange airport pick up for you accordingly. In Mombasa the local staff will meet you and introduce you to your host and the local area.
Both your host and local coordinator will be more than happy to help you settle in and acclimatise and you'll feel at home in no time in this friendly and laid back community.
WHERE WILL I BE STAYING?
You will be staying with a friendly host in a homestay, which will allow you truly to experience Kenyan culture. We choose our hosts carefully to ensure that they are able to provide the support and security needed to make your stay comfortable – and fun!
The homestay will usually have a bathroom, living room with TV and kitchen with a fridge and will be close to transport and local shops. You will be made to feel part of the family from the moment you arrive and you will soon find yourself immersed in home and community life.
WHAT WILL I BE EATING?
You host will provide you with two delicious, authentic, home cooked Kenyan meals a day, providing you with a balanced diet including fruit and safe drinking water. Vegetarians are welcome and can easily be catered for.
Kenyan cuisine includes such delicacies as "oysters Mombasa", fish or chicken in coconut, groundnut soup or beef and potato stewand for pudding, bananas cooked in banana leaves.
