If a good day dawns in the morning, the African dawn of the end of the pandemic brings more than one hope of seeing Kenya's coastal tourist destinations full of Italians again starting next season, perhaps with a further taste at Easter, when our government is supposed to reopen to tourism in the countries of Band E, in which Kenya is also included, like practically all the nations of the African continent.
Yes, because these days many compatriots have arrived in Malindi, Watamu and Mambrui and they are not only homeowners, residents, reunions of de facto couples, temporary changes of address or other emergencies established by the exceptions of the order of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
There are those who have decided to dare, trusting in the relaxation of control measures (which have never been strict, except during the first months when almost nobody would have moved to travel outside the country) and in the very favorable and quiet situation in Kenya.
In the past few days we have seen whole families arrive who have preferred ten days in the heat of the equator and a friendly destination, to the classic skiing holiday or some other excursion. Never as in this historical period the nature of the coast, the peace of the ocean and the wonder of the paradise corners of Kilifi County evoke what Italians need: relaxation, escape from stress and exasperation.
We believe that this need will be one of the trends of the coming years and it will be important to promote the tourist offer of Malindi and Watamu, for the Italians, not only as sun, sea and tan, but more and more with experiences that can fill the soul emptied by the fears and tensions of the pandemic and the heart in need of new emotions. Kenya, and especially the coastal destinations, have all this at their fingertips: an hour's drive from the wildlife of Tsavo East, with memorable sunsets and the silence that restores, day trips through the mangroves of Mida Creek, or in the forest of Arabuko and among the ruins of ancient Gede, to see the flamingos at the mouth of the Sabaki River or the golden beach of Che Shale, with a visit to the Hell's Kitchen canyon of Marafa ... and much more that can only be found here.
Meanwhile, for those who have just arrived, it's fine to lounge on the sun beds on the beach or spend carefree days by the pool, enjoying fresh fish and tropical fruits. Those who know these places well, know of what serenity and enjoyment we are talking about, to others we recommend to get ready to learn it, in the coming months.

If the Ministry of Tourism of Kenya wants to differentiate the marketing and promotion of Malindi and Watamu, making them autonomous and distinct goals, there is a reason.
The appointment is not to be missed, for Italians who are in Malindi and surroundings in this period.
