Manda Bay is one of the many unspoilt, idyllic islands within the romantic Lamu archipelago, situated on the Northwestern tip of Manda Islands. The lodge lies in the calm inshore waters on a long sandy protected beach. Surrounded by miles of palm fringed silky white sandy beaches and intriguing creeks, Manda Bay is the perfect retreat for both Families and Honeymooners.

ABOUT MANDA BAY

Manda Bay now has 16 chalets of which 11 are on the waterfront and the remaining 5 are set back on the sand dunes, all of which overlook the sea. Each chalet has a veranda with swinging hammocks and en-suite bathrooms. Each room contains enormous walk-in mosquito nets, overhead fans and 24 hour electricity.

We have had an amazingly busy Christmas & New Year, made all the more fun with our brand new water toys arriving in the nick of time. Bananas, super screamers, wake boards, skis … the list is endless. We had more children than adults over this season, so we employed two water sports instructors, who are still recovering.

For those looking for a more relaxing experience, our guests over this season have made the most of our miles and miles of secluded beach; our wonderful masseur has been run off her feet; our dhow has been used to the full to the point that we have been forced to rent dhows from the Lamu residents; spending a day out in a dhow where you catch what you eat is an unparalleled experience!

For those of you who find it difficult to give up on Kenya’s wildlife to sit by the beach, we have had fabulous sightings of bush buck, dik diks, buffalos, bush pigs and even bush-babies in the bar. We’ve even seen hippo tracks 4 or 5 times in the past month.

The switchers have been kept busy too, with the rare crested guinea fowls, lots of Carmine Beaeaters as well as some guests witnessing a Marshal Eagle killing a dikdik. We have just welcomed 150 new chicks, who we trust will supply us with eggs for ever and ever. They are also proving to be a great children’s attraction. We had fabulous Humpback Whale viewing from August until the end of October and we are seeing dolphins more frequently year round. Last but not at all least, we now have a 6-seater airplane Saratoga that can whistle our guests from Nairobi to Manda Bay in 115 hours.
