    This is not your average beach hotel. This property is commonly referred to as ‘the wild place by the sea’. You’ll feel like you’re a world away from the hustle and bustle yet in reality, you’re only a 2.5 hour drive north of Malindi on Kenya’s coast, or a short plane ride to the private airstrip and 20 minute boat ride down the mangrove channel to the lodge’s jetty. A safari to the Tana Delta is an escape to a wild place for seclusion and tranquility.

    This property is nestled amidst high majestic sand dunes between the old estuary of the Tana River, now a vast and beautiful delta, and the Indian Ocean. With 50 kilometers of uninhabited and uninterrupted coastline to explore, you’ll never tire of walking with the feeling of sand between your toes and the sun's rays beating down on your skin. It’s perfect for sand-yachting at low tide! Read More
