Kipungani is a Swahili word meaning "the place of fresh air" and that is exactly what this exotic island off the northern coast of Kenya has to offer. Kipungani is where you leave the world behind. This glorious hideaway is set in a bay on an unspoilt wild on the southern white beach, tip of the sleepy Swahili island of Lamu.
After a 90-minute flight from Nairobi or 45-minute flight from Mombasa, you will be met at Manda Island.
Your enchanting experience begins here with a 30-minute boat ride to this exclusive island. Amidst a 25-acre coconut plantation stand 15 thatched villas made from mangrove poles and palm leaves.
There are no cars and no doors. The open style banda ensures privacy and complete comfort with verandas facing the sea.
