Mombasa, Coastal Kenya, Kenya
Try and take the train if you can, all the books say travel first class, which was fun, but over rated, if you re interested in meeting fellow travels travel 2nd class and then you share your room with three other travelers.

Lamu, Coastal Kenya, Kenya
Lamu is the land that time forgot, and definitely a place to be "off the grid." However, those seeking the calm coastal life be warned: you cannot arrive without being approached by a throng of "guides" offering their services, which can be annoying to those wanting to be left alone. Frankly you just have to find one that you feel comfortable with and accept their offer because you can't do anything in Lamu without a guide. They will become your best friends, and are indispensible in figuring out how things work in Lamu. They will organise day trips, dhow boat rides, tours of historic ruins, snorkelling/diving, and partying in local hotels (even if they are not permitted to enter the premises)... they will even leave you alone when instructed to do so. Bring a sarong, and a hat, and try to rent a house with a rooftop terrace / bedroom.

Nairobi, Nairobi Area, Kenya
A very good restaurant in Nairobi is Javas Restaurant. It's not too expensive and the ones missing Hamburgers and French Frieses Or the ones who just want a change should go there. Best and cheapest way to travel through Nairobi are Matatus but you have to know which number you need and how much it should cost else you could be cheated. Something you need to have seen is the Maasai Market on tuesday or the market on saturday. Bargaining is a must but one can make a lot of friends.

Mombasa to Nairobi by night train was a very pleasing event. Have an interesting orient express feeling. Do not expect much comfort tho, as the track is somewhat old and many stops for the local wildlife.
