Highlights for Kipungani Explorer
- The airstrip that serves the lodge is Manda Island
- Has 13 spacious bandas
It has 13 spacious bandas that sit at one end of Kipungani Bay, which is Swahili for ‘the place of fresh air’.
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 woven by the residents of neighbouring Kipungani village.
The large interiors are a picture of rustic simplicity, with giant king-size beds and furniture all handmade from local mangrove and palm woods.
Each banda has an ocean-facing veranda with local funzi sofas and chairs piled high with colourful cushions.
Amenities include freshwater showers, flush toilets, and separate dressing areas with wash basins.
