MANDA BAY IN LAMU
Lamu is a honeymooner and romantic escapaders’ Kenyan paradise! Your luxuriant and barefoot beach holiday on Lamu Island begins at Manda Bay, an exclusive rustic accommodation that eloquently combines relaxed coastal living with outstanding service and heavenly cuisine. The 16 banda cottages are built from local materials and feature a design palette drawn from the oceanic setting of the islands of Lamu that includes large raw timbers, intricately hand-carved furniture and thatch roofs, all gracefully enhanced with soft blues and greens encompassing a hint of warm coral color. For your seaside vacation on the Indian Ocean with AfricanMecca, your choice of cottage determines how close you are to the beach, with Beach Front Cottages being the closest and enjoying the best views of the ocean with only a few steps between you and the sand. In addition to the views, these cottages also allow you to receive the soothing sound of the waves lapping at the sand, and you may even be able to dangle your feet in the water from your veranda. Set further away from the beach and just behind the Beach Front Cottages are the Sea View Cottages, and nestled within the lush tropical vegetation are the family-friendly, more affordable Garden Cottages. All guest cottages include mosquito netting, ceiling fan, small refrigerator, en-suite bathroom with double vanity and private veranda. Manda Bay provides electricity to guest cottages 24 hours per day, but for environmental reasons, the main building only has power for eight hours each day. Swahili and European influences are delicately combined to create delectable authentic dishes that highlight the fresh seafood brought in from local fishermen and the bounty of the Manda Bay fruit and vegetable gardens. No need to rush your morning preparation to meet a set breakfast schedule, as the kitchen prepares a lovely breakfast buffet that you may enjoy at your convenience before setting off on your fun-filled beach travel excursions and activities in coastal Kenya, and upon your return, a light buffet-style lunch will be waiting in the dining area, or weather permitting, poolside or on the 60-foot Manda Bay Utamaduni Dhow. At sunset, join other guests on a specially-prepared lounging area on the sand dunes and stay around for a little while after the sun disappears to see the night sky fill with stars. A set three-course dinner is served outdoors, and should the weather be less than perfect, the evening meal is served by candlelight in the dining room. Private dinners and special meal preparations can be accommodated with advance notice via AfricanMecca. Manda Bay is an excellent resort base for all of your high-energy aquatic sports and to ensure you have an ideal beach tour in East Africa, the hotel has a six-man banana shaped ocean rider, ski boat and water skiing equipment, wake boards, sailing boats and many other types of equipment, as well as five motor boats that can be used to take you on an exploratory beach trip along the Lamu Island coastline for bird watching, snorkeling, fishing, cultural and historical tours and just about any other excursion that you can imagine.

AfricanMecca Safari could not have been more helpful through the entire process of planning our trip to Kenya. Our trip to Lamu (a suggestion by Raza) was incredible, and Kizingo is a perfect place to stay there. All in all, we had an amazing time in Kenya.
Jordan Klein & Anna Kohanski - New York, United States
Lamu was fabulous. hot and sunny and we again were delighted with our accommodation. Everything was run smoothly and without any hitches and we are most grateful for a truly memorable holiday of a life time. You organised everything efficiently which made life so easy for us.
Angela Cook - London, United Kingdom
I had just the BEST time in Lamu - quite probably the holiday of my life - and am determined to go back in November. I have to say, the holiday was made by Altaf's dedication to what I needed - he worked very hard to ensure I got the full ten night stay at Kipungani, and I was impressed to say the least. Many thanks - I'll be back.
Jeremy King, Senior Producer GMTV - London, United Kingdom
Raza, I have returned from the trip to Kenya you arranged. It went quite well and all of your advice about hotels etc was correct and prevented me from doing things less than optimal. I really enjoyed Lamu; it is one of the best beaches I have seen.
Dr Thomas Walshe - Boston, Massachusetts - United States
Raza, I want to tell you that all aspects of our travel arrangements with you ran smoothly. Our visit to Lamu was most enjoyable and a pleasant contrast to the highlands. I will unreservedly recommend AfricanMecca to others.
Peter Moody - Cape Town, South Africa
I wanted to email you to say how well all your arrangements came together for Lamu - Peponi Hotel. The logistics worked very well, the venues fulfilled all expectations - the whole experience was splendid.
Robyn Taylor - Brisbane, Australia
Lamu Palace was really quite exotic, with again wonderful people, in great location, I felt like I was in the movie Casablanca. I will recommend your company to anyone I know travelling to Kenya. In deep appreciation...
