    Welcome to Diani Beach

    Our lovely wilderness safari and stay in Maasai Mara end this morning. After our farewell breakfast, we enjoy a shared transfer to the airstrip where we board our scheduled flight to Diani for the sea breeze of the Indian Ocean on the famous Swahili coast. Flying from the Maasai Mara game reserve plains to the tropical coast takes us over amazingly diverse scenery from dry arid lands scattered with Acacia trees to lush tropical forests as we near the coast. The flight takes approximately 2 hours with a stopover in Amboseli.

    The hotel lies south of Mombasa- Kenya, on one of the most beautiful beaches in the world. Afrochic Diani is the perfect getaway for the discerning traveler who wants to simply ‘flop and drop’ and enjoy the spectacular views of exotic and ancient dhows in full sail. This exclusively intimate hotel - with only 10 guest rooms each with their en suite bathroom, balcony, and sun-loungers - is singularly personable and highly individual.
