Nestling amid the mainland dunes, the oasis of our Safari Village lies to the north of a sheltered lagoon off the island of Kiwayu. The only sound you will hear is the sound of the sea and the wind in the palms. A maximum of 36 guests can stay in the 18 spacious and beautifully decorated local-style cottages (bandas) spread out along the shoreline. Your home is a banda built in the local Bajuni tradition with palm thatched roof and carpeted floor. The banda is a suite consisting of a bedroom, dressing room, and shower with running water and toilet.
Each hammock-strung veranda offers privacy and a panoramic view over the bay. And each one is within a few meters of the water's edge, clustered around the restaurant, the bar and the boats. Every room is furnished with a Super king-size bed surrounded by a turquoise mosquito net. It is simple, spacious and well furnished with different sitting areas and tables - with many options for that all-important siesta. These bandas are designed to blend into the dunes - no concrete, no nails, nothing to jar the senses. The dining room and bar are also built in the local Bajuni tradition with palm-thatched roofs and woven matting floors, all open-sided to the beach. After the dinner is served you will have a chance to meet the few other guests at the bar and enjoy a nice conversation with people from all over the world.
Nearby attractions and activities:
Walking is an infinite pleasure along the sandy beaches stretching on each side of the oasis or on Kiwayu Island. Foot safaris over the
dunes to watch the sun set over hundreds of miles of uninhabited game country with a chance to detect the elusive lesser kudu coming through the doum palms towards you are as exciting as to see the wild animals coming to refresh themselves at the water holes below.
An experienced tracker from a local tribe will point out to you the pugmarks and spoor of a lion or the prowl for baboon, and while he
accompanies you he will let you know what this great nature is all about.
