Kazingo Lodge is beautifully situated at one end of a spectacular 12-kilometre beach that stretches from Kizingo (which means 'the point’ in Swahili) to the fashionable village of Shela on the island of Lamu.
There are eight very spacious bandas with high-pitched thatched roofs and shaded balconies right on the beach.
Each has a large double bed romantically draped with mosquito netting and comfortable chairs for lounging. Bamboo screens unfurl to give complete privacy. The en suite bathroom is well appointed with a flushing toilet, hot water shower, wash basin and dressing area.
Chefs prepare delicious lunches and dinners in the restaurant overlooking the Indian Ocean using only the freshest local produce. Fish and seafood are the specialities - red snapper, crab and lobster, all served with locally-grown vegetables and salads.
Kizingo is strongly committed to conservation, ecologically sound practices and a symbiotic relationship with the local community.
Hot water and most of our electricity is provided by solar panels. Shower water and kitchen grey water is recycled to grow our plants and trees and guests can visit the local village and its school.
Green turtles come up to the beach to lay their eggs from October to June. The incubation period is up to 90 days. When the eggs hatch, staff alert us so that interested guests may watch over the baby turtles as they find their way to the ocean, protecting them from crabs and birds.
