Mombasa Warnings and Dangers: 30 reviews and 24 photos

Catchy title - huh? But seriously: They say coconuts kill more tourists every year than any wild animal I can believe it, I had once one cominig down next to me during some meal. And there is no warning before they hit.

If they fall on your head you will suffer a cracked skull. Don?t risk it.
On the beaches in front of the hotels they try to take them down regularly, but you do better looking up before you lie down, if this really is such a safe place to sunbath.
