Mike’s Camp is located on Kiwayu Island, one of the many unspoilt, idyllic islands of the Lamu Archipelago, on one of the most stunningly remote places in Kenya Coast. You are offered your own ...More private island where you are safe and undisturbed. Surrounded by miles of soft white sand, turquoise waters and gorgeous coral gardens, it offers one of the only beaches in Kenya on which you can walk for miles without seeing a single soul. We are an Eco Camp where water is brought by donkey and power comes from the wind and the sun. The seven private and spacious bandas are set amongst the sand dunes, with panoramic views. Make of locally weaved palms, they blend harmoniously into the environment. All have mosquito nets, complimentary towels and toiletries, en suite bathrooms, hand painted bucket shower, flushing toilets and laundry service. The living areas are simply decorated with local art crafted from recycled colourful flip flops. Mike's Camp, also includes a sun terrace. Guests can enjoy the on-site restaurant, with packed lunches available on request. Dine together under the stars. Feast on fresh fish, Seafood, tropical fruits and vegetables. The menus are Swahili and International based using local spices and fresh herbs. It is simple fresh cuisine. We can cater for vegetarians. Picnics in the beach hut are a regular occurrence and people often enjoy a romantic dinner in a unique setting. You can be as relaxed or active as you like. Mike’s Camp offers tranquility, water sports, safaris and fishing in a uniquely homely environment. You can snorkel in the coral reefs off the beach on either side of the island, go sand yachting, kayaking, boogie boarding, sailing, waterskiing, wake boarding, kite surfing, picnicking on neighbouring remote coral islands, deep sea fishing, fly fishing, windsurfing and diving. You can also play table tennis and darts at the Camp. Without any pretensions you can listen to the birds, swim with the fishes and marvel at the beauty of nature… or play your music as loud as your want! Introducing a new spacious banda -Sankuri House- includes 2 rooms (each with their own bathrooms) kitchen,dining area and seating area with a stunning panoramic view of the mangrove and the ocean to relax in after a busy day. It's self catering, so you can prepare your own meals, or our very good local chef can surprise you with delicious food. Less
