The Mandharini Resort of Kenya has been added to the Preferred Residences Membership and Exchange Program. Preferred Residences, a Miami, Florida based company, is thrilled to have made their first foray into African timeshares. Mandharini is found in Kilifi, Kenya, on Kenya’s beautiful coastline that overlooks the Indian Ocean. It’s 50 km from two of Kenya’s most important cities, Mombasa and Malindi. It’s about 3 hours from the capital city of Nairobi.
Kenya is still not a very high destination for most world travelers, so its beauty is largely preserved. The designers of the Mandharini have this in mind and have built the resort to coexist with nature. This doesn’t mean that you will have cougars visiting your bedroom at night, but the frame of the resort uses natural bamboo. If that is too old-school for your liking, Mandharini has an excellent golf course with mountains in the background and a restaurant that cooks up local meats that are exotic to the Western palette, such as dik dik or duiker, which are similar to antelopes and guinea pigs, respectively.
Mandharini means “a place of beautiful views,” and northern Kenya is known for its awe-inspiring wildlife and countryside. Perhaps the greatest draw of Mandharini is the fact that is neighbors both history and natural beauty. Kilifi was founded in the 14th century, and a short bike ride to the Arabuko Sokoke Forest, a 150 acre ecological preserve. It is the largest area of coastal dry forest remaining in Eastern Africa. There you can find the unique Baobab tree, a tree that can get to be over 1,000 years old and has a very thick trunk with branches and leaves only extending from its top-most parts. While visiting your timeshare in Kilifi, tan on beautiful Bofa beach. It has one of the best and yet least crowded beaches in Kenya. It has beautiful white sand and azure blue water free from oil and pollution. Enjoy the best of Kenya, from the mountains to wind surfing, from golfing to nightlife, all in an exotic setting, courtesy of the Mandharini Resort.
