An Italian Billionaire's Kenyan Retreat
Briatore has been going to Malindi for years and is bullish on the future of the area as a playground for the world's elite. Briatore has a lot invested in the area and seems to also take an interest in the local citizenry. He has donated food and other items to the poor in the area (a NY Times story from 2008 had Briatore strolling down the beach handing out money). He believes that the area is now safe and that is most important for his luxury-loving guests. Certainly the pictures of Briatore and his pregnant wife Elisabetta Gregoraci enjoying a warm weather winter holiday won't be bad for business.
