Vipingo Ridge is a prestigious residential golf development set within a spectacular 2,500 acre estate on the Kenyan Coast. The tranquil development meticulously blends sound investment opportunities with a first class lifestyle. Located just 36km north of Mombasa, Vipingo Ridge can be accessed daily on a flight operated by Safarilink from Nairobi's Wilson airport, directly to our own airstrip. There are numerous flights from Nairobi to both Mombasa and Malindi airports, either of which is about 90 minutes away by road. Private taxi transfers can be arranged and a helipad is available for private arrivals.
The transnational highway between Malindi and Bagamoyo in Tanzania is in short-term infrastructural development plans. This highway will cut right across Kilifi near Vipingo. Construction is set to begin in late 2018, with a projected duration of 36 months. This should be a huge improvement for both trade and tourism, allowing ease of transport through the expansion of this already existing channel. It will cover Malindi, Mombasa and Lunga Lunga in Kenya, through to Tanga, Pangani, Saadani then Bagamoyo in Tanzania.
Africa Development Bank is looking for financial partners capable of investing KES 40 billion into the project.
The construction of three more key roads in Kilifi County is set to ease transport of goods and passengers between Kilifi, Mombasa and Taita Taveta counties.
The Kaloleni-Mavueni road has been completed. This will also ease transport of cargo and passengers between Mariakani, Kaloleni and Kilifi town.
The Mariakani-Bamba and Malindi-Sala Gate Road are also being tarmacked, which will open up Tsavo and shorten travel time between the Nairobi-Mombasa highway and the Kilifi region.
The now completed Standard Gauge Railway makes it a lot faster and cheaper to move from the Capital to Kilifi. The SGR stops in Mariakani and links to the newly constructed roads in the area, connecting Kilifi and Malindi to the main Mombasa line.
Kilifi has opened up 70% of its tenders to the locals and residents, thereby creating jobs and opportunities for youth in the County.
Of this, 30% of contracts are allocated to the youth, women and persons with disability without competition from established firms.
Kilifi’s strategic geographic location on the shores of the Indian Ocean some 60 kilometers away from the country’s main sea-port make it very lucrative town to invest in.
The town has seamless access to the Moi International Airport and Malindi Airport. There are at least 7 banks that have set up shop in Kilifi ready to provide much-needed financing.
Emerging opportunities in agriculture, livestock and fisheries are available in Kilifi in the form of bilateral, private and public-private participation (PPP). NGO’s, and other companies partnered with the government would be very well placed to do business in Kilifi.
