MIKES CAMP IN LAMU - KIWAYU
Formerly known as Munira Island Camp, Mike’s Camp on Kiwayu Island is a rustic, modest accommodation that gives you access to the sand, water and surf for your relaxed beach vacation in Kenya. Located in the Lamu Archipelago, the island is a coastal hideaway for diverse seaside travelers in Kenya who want to escape the hustle and bustle of the more heaving African beach resorts without sacrificing the iconic coral reef, turquoise water and soft sandy beaches that have made Lamu a desired destination for discerning beach lovers around the world. The simplicity of the camp extends to every part of the operations, from supplies brought in by donkey to wind and solar generated power, and the 7 guest bandas are constructed of natural materials and situated on top of the sand dunes. The views from your open-sided banda are of the Indian Ocean or mangrove creek and you are well-spaced from your neighbor for an ideally secluded beach holiday in Lamu with AfricanMecca. A private veranda with hammock and day beds gives you a relaxing place to read, nap or watch the oceanic motion. Your king-size bed is canopied with mosquito netting to allow you to slumber safely and quietly while gentle tropical breezes keep you cool and comfortable (read more on when is the best time to go to Lamu). The “cast-away” ambience of your banda continues in the ensuite bathroom that features bucket showers, wash basin and water container to help you stay refreshed. You should note that the best spot on the island for sunsets is to the west where the water is much calmer and a lovely shade of deep green with shades of blue. Sample a Tusker beer or refreshing cocktail at the Sunset Bar just before enjoying a satisfactory meal of fresh seafood, vegetables and salads, with crab and daily catch fish being the most frequently served dish, and you may choose to dine amongst other guests and enjoy delightful conversation or request that your dinner is served in solitude by romantic candlelight. Napping may be your chosen pastime during your coastal trip in East Africa, but there will surely be times when the ocean is simply too inviting to resist. For those moments, a leisure boat ride takes you to a gorgeous coral reef that is teeming with a kaleidoscope of marine life and snorkeling is an illuminating way to peer into this underwater realm, and for a contrast in habitats, a short walk to the other side of Kiwayu Island takes you to a lovely mangrove forest. Your dream vacation on the Indian Ocean with AfricanMecca may also include long walks on the beach, cycling, kite boarding, day trips to local cultural and historic sites, just to name a handful of the options you will have at Mike’s Camp.

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...
