The Lamu Archipelago is a chain of five islands just off the Kenyan coastline. They have been inhabited for thousands of years and contain many sites of archaeological significance from the Swahili, Arabian, Portuguese and European settlers. The largest town on the islands is Lamu town which is a UNESCO World Heritage site.

Visitors will be collected from the airport by boat and it is a 20 minute ride to the lodge. Manda Air Services provides private charters to a landing strip on Manda Island which is located just a 2 minute car ride from the lodge.
