A perfect way to end your safari in East Africa is a relaxing stay on Kenya’s Indian Ocean Coast at Malindi, once a port city of foreign powers and rich in ancient culture and traditions. Accommodations are at The Driftwood, a resort on the white-sand beach offering many exciting water-based activities in a tropical marine ecosystem.
