On Lamu's extreme south-western tip, Kizingo (which means “point" in Swahili) is a simple beach lodge of palm matting and makuti thatch tiles on a large, 12-acre plot of sand dunes and scrub. Built in 2003 by the van Aardt family, and still owned by them, it's a deliberately informal and low-key setup.

Our view of Kizingo

We only had the chance to pay a short visit to Kizingo the last time we were in Lamu in 2019, but the atmosphere is laid-back and welcoming. The remote location, small, friendly team and rustic feel to the lodge means a stay here is truly low key, very relaxed and informal.
