Banda Mlimani Wasini is as special as specialty lodging can get! An abode made for the seeker of pure adventure and true experience of the African nature. Here you dwell just some sticks and a net away from the buzzing nature and the crashing Indian Ocean waves. Don't expect brick walls or glass windows – there are none around here! The beach hut is equipped with a hand carved Swahili queen-size bed and four single beds (incl. mosquito nets). Right adjacent is a large roofed outside area with a dining table and a local kitchen (2 fireplaces, 1 gas cooker, cupboards). Attached is a small bathroom with an eco-toilet (urine only) and shower (fresh water bucket shower). In a distance is a bathhouse with conventional flush toilets (sea water) and further eco-showers . The island has no ground ...Banda Mlimani Wasini is as special as specialty lodging can get! An abode made for the seeker of pure adventure and true experience of the African nature. Here you dwell just some sticks and a net away from the buzzing nature and the crashing Indian Ocean waves. Don't expect brick walls or glass windows – there are none around here! The beach hut is equipped with a hand carved Swahili queen-size bed and four single beds (incl. mosquito nets). Right adjacent is a large roofed outside area with a dining table and a local kitchen (2 fireplaces, 1 gas cooker, cupboards). Attached is a small bathroom with an eco-toilet (urine only) and shower (fresh water bucket shower). In a distance is a bathhouse with conventional flush toilets (sea water) and further eco-showers . The island has no ground water and relies on rain water collected in cisterns, i.e. water is a scarce commodity and has to be used in moderation. Wasini Island is not connected to the national power grid. Banda Mlimani is equipped with a small solar installation. Besides lighting, it provides energy 24/7 for your small electronic devices such as phones and cameras – high energy consuming equipment such as laptops or e-cooler boxes exceed its capacity. The beach hut shares a large compound, a restaurant area on a roof top terrace, and a private sand beach on the cliffs including boat jetty with Blue Monkey Beach Cottages. A maximum of 6 other guests guarantees peace and privacy for everyone. The responsible traveler can expect sustainable tourism at its best! Friends of green living, marine wildlife, and water sports will love Wasini Island as we do...If you are looking for an authentic place – and are willing to go some time without conventional luxury – then you might have found your dream island. No cars, no roads but a lot of wild nature and traditional Swahili culture! More

Quiet, relaxing, simple and perfect place to escape from Nairobi or any big cities. Amina and Faisal welcomed us on Wasini and helped us to organise the trip from Mombasa to Shimoni and then to the island. Everything was smooth and they were extremely responsive...More
