Diani Beach is a major beach resort on the Indian Ocean coast of Kenya (in eastern Africa). It is located 30 kilometres (19 mi) south of Mombasa, in the nearby Kwale County.

The beach is about 10 kilometres (6 mi) long, from the Kongo River to the north and Galu beach to the south (the southern point of reference is an old Baobab tree). It is adjacent to the town of Ukunda, the population of which nears 100,000 inhabitants. A small airstrip is located between the beach area and the Mombasa-Lunga Lunga road. The water remains shallow near shore, with some underwater sandbars near the surface which allow wading with a clear view of the sandy bottom. Inland from the beach, there is extensive vegetation, including numerous palm trees which cover the coastal areas, unlike the dry acacia trees of the mountainous Kenyan Highlands. The Mwachema River flows into the sea at Diani Beach.

The general area is known for its coral reefs, black-and-white colobus monkeys, and for the closely located Shimba Hills National Reserve, a wildlife reserve which looks out over the Indian Ocean. Diani Beach has high-class restaurants, hotels, supermarkets, and several shopping centers.

Walking Duration: 5 hours
Terrain: Animal trails through the indigenous Forest.

The Kereita Forest at the southern-most end of the Aberdares range has interesting hiking trails and natural features like the Kereita Cave and Waterfall. One of these trails, the Carbacid trail, leads to Kereita Waterfall on Gatamaiyu River, and the adjacent cave that is home to a small bat colony.

Route Description:
The walk through Kereita Forest starts at the Carbacid Forest Gate. This general area sits on top of an underground natural CO2 reservoir currently mined by Carbacid Ltd for industrial and commercial usage.
During the first hour, the hike goes through an exotic forest interspersed with large open clearings created by the controversial Shamba System.
As you get further into the forest and descend into the first river valley, the clearings give way to the indigenous forest. The undergrowth gets thicker, more interesting, and varied. Giant ferns and climbers abound, competing for the meager light filtering though old gnarled mammoth trees that stand tall and proud. The jungle comes to life with the calls of various monkey and bird species. The trail is hardly discernible due to infrequent visitors to this part of the forest. Most of trail here follows animal trails going in the general direction of the waterfall.
After walking up and down two steep river valleys for about two hours, the trail passes by the Elephant Pool, a large natural water body where elephants come to frolic. A further one hour walk finally brings you to Kereita Waterfall on Gatamaiyu River, dropping 60ft to the stream below. To the right side of the waterfall is a cave with a small bat population.
The return path retraces part of the trail out of the valley to the top of a ridge, before veering off on a northbound trail into a bamboo forest. This path climbs to the highest point of the hike, a clearing with excellent views of Elephant Hill, Nairobi and Mt Longonot. This location is ideal for camping point, with excellent views of the night sky, and Nairobi and Thika lights.
The whole round trip takes about 5 hours.
