Why we recommend Manda Bay

Manda Bay in Kenya combines a beach and bush experience with camp fires, star gazing, walks, different water sports and tranquility for those wishing to simply unwind. Guests are treated to beach front accommodation, informal pampering and pure barefoot luxury. Relaxing here is easy; we recommend cruising on Utamaduni, the 60ft traditional sailing dhow, at sunset.
