THE RED PEPPER HOUSE IN LAMU
To escape into a land untouched by time, you could not choose a better place on earth than Lamu on the south-east coast of Kenya (view map). And at The Red Pepper House, they work to enhance your experience of an authentic Swahili village with makuti thatched roofs, beach front location and lush greenery all around so you have the ideal cast-away holiday with AfricanMecca. Set on the beach, you will have soft sands underfoot and the expansive azure blue waters of the Indian Ocean in front of you. Revel in the solitary location of this hotel that has only 5 luxury Nyumbas or houses for their guests. The Red Pepper House is a top-notch, personable accommodation in Lamu that is an enchanting combination of the new and old. You can look forward to the welcome drinks, warm, personalized service, best quality amenities and gourmet cuisine cooked to match your specific taste and dietary requirements. From the outside, the rural resort seems to blend in with its surroundings but step into the one of the houses and you will see that they have all the subtle modern facilities complete with Swahili carved wooden chests for storage and sister decors. Each of the houses has their own enclosed zone of the beach that faces ocean. They also come with mini-bars, music systems with CDs and a drawing kit. Recharge your electronics and use the hangers to unpack during your beach trip in Lamu. The beds are draped with mosquito nets, and insect repellent and torches are placed in all the rooms. The hotel also provides safe deposit boxes and walkie-talkies to use for the duration of your stay. The bathrooms have walls of closely set bamboo to offer you the privacy you need but allow twilight to filter through them for a romantic feel. Hair dryers and scales are placed in them for you use and they also have wall mirrors and magnifying mirrors. You can request laundry services and a butler is available on call. For your meals, the house chef will visit you and discuss the meal has prepared for you, and is open to any amendments if you prefer. Have your breakfast on the patio of your house with the soft ocean breeze caressing you and the birds humming in the trees. You could have a candlelight dinner on the beach or enjoy sundowners as evening settles over the ocean. Pamper yourself with a rejuvenating massage or get henna tattoos to show off as hand souvenirs of your travel to coastal Kenya. You could spend a day exploring Lamu and the other islands around by dhow, combining the tour with an exciting meal aboard the boat. Go curio shopping in Lamu's old town or check out the museum near the fort. Take all the pictures you want of this rare heaven on earth or spend some quiet time fishing in the deep waters of Lamu. Then head to the coral reefs for some snorkeling time to appreciate the ocean-life or you can go for a relaxed stroll by the shore and maybe you might spot a crab sidling along on the sand or trapped star fish in the low tide. There is any number of possible undertakings for your boutique beach vacation in Kenya with AfricanMecca, but the best among them is the relaxation in the chic environs of The Red Pepper House.

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...
