What our visitors say about us

Beauty and solitude

‘Only 10 lodges straight on the empty beach. Beautiful interior decoriation, excellent food and a friendly staff with good knowledge of English.
Spend half a day snorkling 6 miles out from the beach on a sandy reef and the staff will serve you an excellent lunch. Take a bodaboda (motorcycle taxi) to Pangani to experience a town wihout a single tourist. The airstrip is adding extra flavour to the experience – a grass field without a single house.’
