There are not many stretches of deserted beach as long as Kizingoni left in the world. Despite its apparent remoteness, this beach is only a twenty minute boat ride from the larger fishing towns of Lamu and Shela and even closer to the unspoilt village of Kipungani. On this spectacular African beach front, five villas enjoy twenty four acres of seclusion adorned with ancient coconut groves, orchards and a vegetable garden.
Jahazi, Kizingoni, Kazkazi, Pepo and Kusini Houses are all dream holiday homes that come fully staffed and with their own boat, each with a shallow well for water in addition to windmills and solar panels for creating energy. It is through these initiatives, as well as the working relationship with local communities, that these homes stand out for their commitment to maintain the region’s natural beauty.
A host of water sports, swimming with dolphins and deep sea fishing are just a selection of the many exciting ways to spend a day by the ocean. In the evenings, take a local dhow for a cruise around Kitingoni Bay with a box of iced drinks and a kikapu of samosas, or enjoy a massage at your house.
