DIY adventurers will enjoy getting further off the tourist trail and heading to some of the other towns, cities and attractions surrounding Kiwayu.
Should the heavens open, don't worry, Kenya boasts a range of craft workshops, guaranteed to keep you and your family entertained and dry.
If you enjoy mixing with travelers of similar interests, Kiwayu has plenty of specialized activities such as wildlife safaris and wildlife spotting tours.
There is no better approach to discover the place you are traveling through than sampling the food from the region. Potato as well as maize are commonly used in cooking in this area. Popular foods include ugali (cornmeal) and irio (mashed peas and potato mix), but there are many other tasty meal options on the menu. To complete your typical local dining experience, you can't go past chilled banana cream. Then, kick back with a refreshing local Picana (mango juice).
Much of Kiwayu acknowledges Independence Day on the 12th of December, so be prepared for changes to business hours and transport schedules.
When it's finally time to bid goodbye to Kiwayu, head to the nearest major airport situated in Mombasa, 180 miles (290 kilometers) away.
