Munira Island Camp
Munira Island Camp is located on Kiwayu Island, near Lamu.
There are places that claim to be ‘Robinson Crusoe’ but aren’t really…and then there are those that couldn’t be more so if they tried. Munira is owned and run by Mike Kennedy, and this was formerly known as Mike’s Camp. Easy-going outdoorsy folks will love hanging out, snorkelling, sailing and exploring this wild and wonderful place. And all done with a real twist of style and know-how.
The camp is constructed of simple ‘bandas’ dotted around the island. Each has an en-suite shower (which works only when you lower your bucket, fill it up and pull it up by it’s rope) and a separate ‘long drop’ toilet. Food is based around the catch of the day and served by a team of very cheerful, friendly staff from the local area.
The camp is basic so you need to come expecting little by way of auxiliary luxuries, but it is a beautiful spot and there are activities on offer for those that want to explore further.
This former trading town has been a center for commerce since the 2nd Century, and is now a rather well kept secret. A UNESCO World Heritage Site, it is the oldest town on Kenya, and you can use it as a base to explore the nearby countryside, or sail in a traditional dhow.
