Kipungani Explorer offers 13 spacious bandas that sit at one end of Kipungani Bay near Lamu, Kenya.

Shaded by the palm trees that line our 600-metre beachfront, the bandas are constructed entirely from local materials, with mkeka palm floors and makuti thatch roofs.

The large interiors are a picture of rustic simplicity, with king-size beds and all handmade furniturefrom local mangrove and palm woods.
