Overlooking a deserted 14 km beach on the south-western tip of Lamu Island, Kipungani Explorer is a dream destination for those seeking a true desert island holiday. After a 90 minute flight from Nairobi, you will be met at Manda Island and transported by boat to the lodge, which is located two degrees south of the Equator.
Our 14 spacious and secluded chalets sit above the soft white sands of Kipungani Bay, which is Swahili for ‘the place of fresh air'. Shaded by the palm trees that line our 600 m beachfront, (overlooking a creek) the chalets are constructed entirely from local materials, with mkeka matting floors and makuti thatch roofs woven by the residents of neighboring Kipungani Village. The large interiors are a picture of rustic simplicity, with giant king-size beds and all furniture handmade from local mangrove and palm woods.

Each chalet has an ocean-facing verandah (overlooking a creek tributary flowing into the Indian Ocean) with local funzi sofas and chairs piled high with colorful cushions. Amenities include freshwater showers, flush toilets, and separate dressing areas with wash basins.
