Lamu Beach Special
FROM PRICE: $ 1835 | ON SPECIAL FOR ONLY: $ 1640
Lamu Island - 6 nights
Price is per person for a 6 night stay, including return flights from Nairobi.
The perfect add on to one of our Kenya safaris, this beach break epitomises 'no news, no shoes'. Set on Lamu Island, Kizingo offers a wonderful secluded and tranquil escape. This small, laid back resort is owner run and great for couples and honeymooners.
Where is it?
The lodge is situated at one end of a spectacular 12km beach, stretching from Kizingo (which means 'the point’ in Swahili) to the fashionable village of Shela, on the Island of Lamu. Lamu is part of an archipelago of islands just off the coast of Kenya.
What is the best time of year to go?
Lamu is good year round. Avoid May and June during the 'short rains' when much of the coast shuts down.
How to get there
There are daily schedule flights from Nairobi connecting Lamu to the Masai Mara and other safari destinations. Flights from Nairobi are included in the cost of this safari.
Tips and Notes
Green turtles come up to the beach to lay their eggs between late October and June. When the eggs hatch, Louis will take guests to watch the newly-hatched turtles find their way to the ocean.
For a real taste of village life in Kenya, why not go on a guided cycle ride on the mainland.
A Dhow can be hired from the local village to sail round the bay. Watch the sun drop into the ocean from the deck of the dhow under full sail.
Visit between November to April for the chance to swim with dolphins and snorkel unspoilt coral reefs around Kinyika, Tenewa and Manda Toto.
