With our luxurious palm-thatched bandas perched between a mangrove-lined channel and the edge of a 12-kilometre white sandy beach, Kipungani Lamu enjoys one of the most romantic locations on the entire east African coast. Our exquisite seafood, traditional Arabian dhows, kayaking safaris, and diving and fishing adventures offer the perfect recipe for those seeking a true desert-island holiday.
