ABOUT THE ITINERARY

Indulge in a week-long escape to Manda Bay in Kenya’s idyllic Lamu Archipelago, a secluded island hideaway where soft white sands merge into the warm waters of the Indian Ocean. After spending one night in Nairobi, you will be transported to the small, privately-owned Manda Bay on the north-western tip of Manda Island. Enjoy six nights in a breezy palm-thatched cottage overlooking an empty beach and pristine reef, where days can be as active or as laidback as you like. Unwind by the landscaped pool or choose from an enticing menu of snorkelling, kite surfing and deep sea fishing.

MANDA ISLAND, LAMU ARCHIPELAGO

The sea surrounding the lodge is safe, calm and warm, so you can fill your days with various water sports such as scuba diving and snorkelling on spectacular coral reefs, kayaking in crystal clear waters and deep sea fishing. The island’s birdwatching opportunities are fantastic, whilst early evening game drives in the bush behind the lodge offers encounters with buffalo, dik-dik and bushbuck.

Otherwise, you can soak up some sun on the pristine beach or by the beautiful landscaped swimming pool. The property also boasts an inviting lounge where you can relax and drink in stunning views across the bay.
