Net terug van kitevakantie Diani Beach Kenia.
Super genoten van een werkelijk fantastische kitevakantie.
Alles in de puntjes verzorgd door Marcel. Schitterende villa, rustig gelegen met veel privacy. Eigen staf en chef die jou alle comfort verzorgen en elke dag een heerlijk ontbijt, lunch en diner voorschotelen. De lokale bevolking is heel vriendelijk en een beetje support aan de arme bevolking wordt heel erg gewaardeerd.
Qua kiten is Diani/Galu Beach, helemaal top. Een windzekere bestemming in de maanden januari en februari. Naast de grote lagune, heb je een groot rif ca. 800 m uit de kust met mooie (grote) golven en vlakke secties boven het koraal. De lagune is groot en je hebt er al de ruimte. Afhankelijk van het tij, vlak water of kleine chop. Zeer geschikt voor beginners, maar ook de gemiddelde en (ver) gevorderde riders komen hier volledig aan hun trekken. Water is warm, zo’n 30 grd. C, dus wetsuits of shorty is niet nodig. Boardshort en lycra om je tegen de zon te beschermen is voldoende.
Ik heb in de 2 weken Diani Beach, op 1 dag na elke dag kunnen kiten, met een 9, 10 en 12m kites, op een TT board (135*41, bij ca. 80 kg). Na vele kitetrips, Zanzibar, Cuba, Zuid Afrika, Canarische Eilanden, zal Kenia mij nog lang bijblijven en de kans dat ik komende jaren terug ga is heel groot…
Als laatste een speciale dank aan Marcel, voor deze geweldige ervaring!

Just got back from kite camp Diani beach Kenya.
Had a wonderful time at this really fantastic kite holiday. Marcel organized everything to the last detail. Beautiful villa situated in a quiet area and with a lot of privacy. The villa comes with his own staff and private chef who took care of all your comfort and served a delicious breakfast, lunch and diner every day. The local people were very friendly and a bit of support for the poor population were very appreciated.
Kiting at Diani/Galu beach was absolutely wonderful. A wind secure destination in the months January and February. Next to the big lagoon you got a reef at ca. 800m from the coast with beautiful (big) waves and flat areas above the coral. The lagoon is large and you have got all the space you want/need. Depending on the tides you will have flat water or a little chop. So very suitable for beginners, but intermediate and advanced riders will enjoy it very much as well. The water is warm ca. 30 degrees Celsius, so you can leave your wetsuit and shorty at home! A board short and lycra to protect you from the sun is more than enough. In the 2 weeks I staid at Diani beach I could kite every day, except for just one day, with 9, 10 and 12m kites on a twintip board (135*41, with my ca. 80 kilos)
After many kitetrips (Zanzibar, Cuba, Zuid Afrika, Canary Islands) Diani beach Kenya has left a very good impression with me and the change that I will join this trip again next year is very big…
As last a special thanks to Marcel, for this amazing experience!

Ik heb een geweldige tijd gehad tijdens dit kite camp in Diani beach Kenia. Prachtige villa, top service, heerlijk eten en een super leuke groep. Alles goed georganiseerd tot in de details. Na jaren te worstelen in het water, heb ik eindelijk zelfstandig leren varen met de hulp van de professionele instructeur. Ik ga binnenkort zeker weer mee met één de kite-trips van Cocokitetravel, ik vind jullie format geweldig; er is niets vergelijkbaars!

I had an amazing time during this kite camp in Diani beach Kenya. Beautiful villa, good service & food and great company. Everything well organized to the detail. After years of struggling in the water I finally got to ride independently with the help of the professional instructor. I will for sure join one the kite trips of Cocokitetravel again soon, I love your format – there is nothing like it!

My mind is still there…😍 wind, sand, sea, kite – enough to be truly happy!

Last January I traveled to Kenya with cocokitetravel and I loved it! The place is amazing, we were staying in a luxury villa with swimming pool at a 5 minutes walk from the spot, ideal to chill after a good day of kiting and at a 10 minutes tuk tuk ride from town. The beach is one of the most beautiful I have ever seen: crystal clear water, white sand and very clean! Marcel made the stay very comfortable, he takes care of everything without you even noticing as it felt like being on holiday with friends, despite the fact that I was traveling on my own. I enjoyed the excursions and the no wind activity he organised when the wind dropped for a couple of days. A positive experience that I will probably repeat!

Afgelopen januari reisde ik met cocokitetravel naar Kenia en ik vond het geweldig! Dit is een prachtige bestemming, we verbleven in een luxe villa met zwembad op 5 minuten lopen van de kite spot, ideaal om te relaxen na een goede dag kiten en op 10 minuten met de tuk tuk van de stad. Het strand is één van de mooiste die ik ooit heb gezien: kristalhelder water, poeder wit zand en zeer schoon! Marcel maakte het verblijf zeer comfortabel, hij zorgt voor alles zonder dat je het merkt, het voelde alsof je op vakantie was met vrienden, ondanks het feit dat ik alleen op reis was. Ik heb genoten van de excursies en de no wind activiteit die hij organiseerde toen de wind een paar dagen wegviel. Een positieve ervaring die ik waarschijnlijk zal herhalen!
