Lamu Island camps - Manda Bay

Manda Bay

The more accessible parts of the Kenya coast can be rather dominated by larger package hotels which means that exclusivity and remoteness can be hard to find. Manda Bay is both reasonably accessible being on the scheduled flight route but is on an isolated tip of Manda Island, lying just a 20 minute boat ride north of Lamu.

Bought by Fuzz & Bimbi Dyer and Andy & Caragh Roberts back in 2003, Manda has been transformed over the past few years from the rather sad 'Blue Safari Club' to an enticing and relaxed coastal hideaway. The sixteen individual cottages are simple and unpretentious but private and each with a great view straight onto the sea. The service and food here are excellent and you will feel both well-looked after and un-hassled in this friendly, hospitable place.

The boys have made sure that all the toys are on hand to entertain those who's idea of a holiday nightmare consists of lying prone on a beach for a week. There is windsurfing, lasers, waterskiing, kayaks, deep-sea and creek fishing plus massage and a new swimming pool. In fact, there is so much to do that you probably won't have the time to do it all. This is a fantastic place to bring families where kids can be entertained whilst the adults get in some down-time (or vice versa).

Incl. FB, Bird Walks, Wind Surfing, Sailing, Kayaking, Sundowners, Laundry and Local Airstrip Transfers. Excl. All Drinks, Motorised Water Sports and Boat/Dhow Excursions, Spa Treatments, Fishing Excursions, Boat Transfers
