July to April

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 and managed by them, it’s a deliberately informal and low-key setup. Unfortunately, as of 12 July 2014 we cannot recommend this property because the UK's foreign office has advised against travel to this area – the Lamu archipelago.

Our view of Kizingo

We only had the chance to pay a short visit to Kizingo the last time we were in Lamu in December 2013, but the atmosphere is laid-back and welcoming and the guests we met there had thoroughly enjoyed their stay. We're looking forward to becoming better acquainted with the lodge as soon as possible.
