Wonderfull travel! I have been staying in the city of Mtwapa and traveling north throught the coastline until Lamu island visiting Kilifi Watamu Malindi. I had no problem at all of any kind.
The best and most intresting place I visited it is Lamu a place quiet and nice without any motorvehicle... Lamu can be reached by bus from Mombasa usually they start in the morning and the trip could take up to 8/10 h. due to the military check point but it is intresting passing throught the City of Malindi the Tana river the City of Impeketoni and a lot of Somalian refugee camps.
It is nice to wake up with the muezzin litany, Lamu is plenty of very nice Mosque. During the day it is a must to get a trip with the local boat with the tipical lateen around the archipelago. Fish food is amazing and it is possible to buy fresh and alive crabs along the beach then just walk in a resturant near the beach with your food ready to be cooked and served. Do not forget the very nice Lamu fruit juice (take care abuut your stomach pain...lol) and the best mangos in the world!
There are no cars and motobikes there the only way to get around is to walk or hire a mule...lol.....nice lifestyle
