All About KILIFI

Kilifi is a resort town on the coast of Kenya, 56 kilometres (35 mi) northeast by road of Mombasa. The town lies on the Kilifi Creek and sits on the estuary of the Goshi River. Kilifi is capital of the Kilifi County.

The town is known for its beach and for the ruins of Mnarani, including mosques and tombs, dating from the 14th to the 17th century.

The towns sits on both sides of the estuary and are linked by the Kilifi Bridge which overlooks the estuary.The South side has the Mnarani ruins and Shauri Moyo beach while the North side is the main part of Kilifi Town and Bofa Beach.

The weather is generally warm throughout the year (above 25 degrees) with two seasons of moderate rainfall (about 800-1000 mm). Long periods of rain start around March and last into July, while the short periods start around October and last until December.

The terrain is generally flat with sandy-loamy soils. Common trees include Cocos lucifera, Anacadium occidentale, Azadirachta indica, and Mangifera indica.

Demographics:

Kilifi is a cosmopolitan town with mixed ethnic groups. The predominant inhabitants (about 80%) are from the Mijikenda groups (mainly Giriama and Chonyi).Other groups include the Swahili-Arab descendants, Barawas, Bajunis, Somalis as well as other groups from inland. There is a handful of Indians, and Europeans, mainly British, German and Italian.

Dhows in Kilifi Creek:

Like every coastal town, fishing is one of the historical economic activities. With time, the town has slowly been transforming from a fishing village to basic industrial and service.

The growth of the town was mainly fueled by the cashew nut milling factory between 1976 and 1990; the district has been a producer of cashews since 1930.The town almost became a ghost town when the factory was closed due to decline in nuts supply, mismanagement of the factory and increased global competition. Other industrial activities include milk processing at Kilifi Plantations.

Since the transformation of the Kilifi institute of Agriculture into Pwani University, there has been substantial expansion of the service sector. Banking activity has been growing with about 7 banks (KCB, Barclays, Postbank, Imperial, Equity, Co operative, Diamond Trust Bank and most recent National Bank) as well as microfinance institutions. Retail business and hotels have historically been significant economic activities. 3 to 4 star hotels include Sea Horse Hotel, Mnarani Club, Kilifi Bay Beach Resort and Baobab Lodge.
