Kipumgani Explorer Lamu, located on the ancient Arabian island-paradise of Lamu, is one of Africa’s most remote, relaxing and richly romantic coastal hideaways. Overlooking the tranquil waters of the sheltered Kipungani Channel, on the remote southwestern tip of Lamu island, Kipungani is a dream destination for those seeking a true away-from-it-all desert island holiday. After a 90-minute flight from Nairobi, you will be met at Manda Island and transported by boat to the lodge, which is located two degrees south of the Equator, on the edge of a deserted 14-kilometer beach.


As well as his practical engineering background, you host at Kipungani, Sebastian Chambers, brings a variety of new skills to the management of Kipungani. A keen sailor and waterskiier, one of his first achievements upon coming on board was to purchase a sleek new ski-boat with a 115-horsepower engine. In many ways, Sebastian was born to host: his parents, Roger and Jan Chambers, are legendary hoteliers in Kenya, having run some of the country’s finest hotels and restaurants, including the Carnivore and the Aberdare Country Club. With this kind of heritage behind him, the young manager is undoubtedly on a firm footing in his quest to create a 21st century ecolodge that ticks all the right boxes.


Kipungani Explorer Lamu is accessible via daily flights from Nairobi to the Manda airstrip on the mainland. Guests are met at the airstrip by the hotels speedboat and transferred 30 minutes by boat to the property.
