Sukuma House à Diani Beach

Nous avions prévu de retourner à Diani en avril, puis comme tout le monde le sait, en avril on était tous chez nous et les frontières étaient fermées. J’avais trouvé cette charmante maison d’hôtes, Sukuma et quand on a décidé, un peu sur un coup de tête de s’envoler en septembre, ça faisait sens de recontacter notre hôte.

Visit Diani Beach

Diani Beach is a major beach resort on the Indian Ocean coast of Kenya, it is located 30 kilometers south of Mombasa. It can be reached directly by plane, but from Kigali it was easy to have a flight to Mombasa , and then using the ferry and road to arrive at this small paradise .

This town was just a fishing place 40 years ago, but in the 70s when tourists wishing to come to Africa found Kenya the ideal place, as there was so much strife and problems in other African countries and it was the beginning of a touristic boom.  Hotels were built along the  coast road, which was at that time  a dusty road.  Since then Diani has continued to expend without losing its charm and simple atmosphere. You will not feel that you are in a very touristic area if you avoid the big hotels.
