Kizingoni Beach Houses, Lamu Island

Lamu is certainly different. Local transport is measured in donkey-power rather than horsepower - the only car on the island belongs to the mayor. Which no doubt contributes to the gentle serenity of Lamu, with its winding streets filled with playing children, its old men sitting talking quietly in shaded doorways, its unchanged way of life.

At Kizingoni, you’ll find yourself luxuriating in a beautiful beach house. Your home will be simply but tastefully decorated, and your staff will include a cook and your own speedboat captain. Essential on a forgotten island with no cars.

Game watching on this trip surpassed all that we had seen before in the one trip. Our thanks to Ultimate yet again
