Arrive Nairobi International Airport, where you will be met on arrival and transferred to the domestic airport for your flight to Ukunda. On arrival in Ukunda, meet with your driver for the 15 minute drive to Kinondo Kwetu, where you check in for 7 nights.
Kinondo Kwetu is a secluded luxury retreat on Kenya’s southern coastline, not far from Mombasa, with room for no more than 38 guests and is situated on a stunning Indian Ocean beach on the southern coast of Kenya. Kinondo is a lovely alternative to the larger beach resorts which otherwise dominate the mainland Kenyan coastline. Kinondo Kwetu is booked on a fully inclusive basis. The menus are set, and served in different venues. Three-course lunches are typically served at tables on the beach, or sometimes in the garden, while dinners may be taken in the main house or privately on the beach.
At leisure at Kinondo Kwetu. Relax on the beach, or take part in any of the available activities (some at additional cost) – whether on land (horse riding, mountain biking, game drives in Shimba Hills) or on water (diving, snorkelling, kayaking, yachting).
Kinondo Kwetu is ideal for those travellers who like to combine their beach breaks with lots of activities. Within its grounds are two swimming pools, a horse stable (riding on a moonlit beach is an exhilarating experience), tennis court, mountain bikes, library and lounge. On the ocean you can enjoy diving, snorkelling, kayaking, windsurfing, water-skiing, or hop on one of Kinondo Kwetu’s outriggers, which are always waiting to take you sailing! The lodge also offers yoga and spa treatments, as well as access to a nearby golf course. A visit to Shimba Hills Game Reserve can be booked locally.
Despite its many facilities, Kinondo Kwetu manages to maintain a relaxed, low-key atmosphere. There are lots of spots where you can find peace and seclusion; in the lodge’s airy living room, in one of the watch towers, where you can watch the sun set over the sea, on a cliff overlooking the ocean, or on the long stretch of white-sand beach that’s only a few steps away from your room. Owners Ida and Filip Andersson are unobtrusive hosts, and the beach is private and hassle-free.
After a leisurely breakfast, transfer to the airport for your international flight home or onward travel arrangements.
NB: Kinondo Kwetu combines perfectly with a few days on safari in the famous Maasai Mara – direct flights are available from nearby Ukundu airstrip. Ask us for more information.
