The Bamburi Nature Trail has nature trails that are good for shorter walks. Bamburi is easily accessible from the Nyali area or Mombasa, see Wildlife Safari for details.
The quiet villages and beachside roads of the North Coast are readily explored by bicycle. This gives you freedom, fresh air and exercise. Bicycles are one of the most common forms of transport in this area, and on most paths and roads you will encounter other cyclists. Local people will always be willing to help out with directions and advice, and are often quite keen to meet and talk with visitors to Kenya.This is a great way to meet Kenyans, and learn more about life in this area.
Bicycles can be hired locally all along the coast either from hotels or private operators. Check the condition of the tyres, chain and frame before hiring a bike. See the Getting Around section in Traveller's guide for more details.
