LOCATION & SURROUNDINGS
Discover Shimoni – the area around our lodge
The lodge is located in the middle of a mangrove nature reserve and is about 80 km south of Mombasa. From Germany, Austria and Switzerland you can reach Mombasa in about nine hours flight time. The transfer time depends on the ferry connection in Mombasa and takes about 2 hours.
The whole area is private property and is exclusively available to the guests of the lodge. In the huge shallow water lagoon, the lodge is the only commercially used facility and otherwise surrounded only by sea, mangroves, fishermen and friends. Due to this location, the beach is almost exclusively reserved for our guests and is occasionally visited by the children of the village.
With over 3,000 hours of sunshine per year, Shimoni is one of the sunniest regions in Kenya. From September to March, hardly any rain is to be expected.
Traveling to Kenya means traveling to a country where many wonders await you: the Indian Ocean, the most exciting, beautiful safaris in the world, the enchanting white beaches of Watamu and Diani, the capital city of Nairobi, the port of Mombasa, the Lamu Archipelago and many other places worth discovering. Don’t miss the opportunity to visit this amazing country where it is possible to see the “big 5” in one of the 45 national parks. However, if you are more keen on experiencing unique cities, don’t miss the exotic Malindi and other vibrant metropolises and towns.
Besides kitesurfing, you can go for long hikes as well as stand up paddleboard and canoe tours in the lagoon and adjacent rivers. The friendliness of the locals and one or two wonderful encounters will be to your delight. There is also a PADI diving center nearby. Would you like to go diving, snorkelling or deep-sea fishing? Take a yoga class, a massage or a cooking class? Just ask us. Our team is at your disposal for the numerous offers and we support you – because Kenya is waiting for you!
