This place was recommended to me by a local dive centre owner as an alternative to the all inclusive hotels in the area. It slightly off the beaten track but is in a fabulous location by the beach. The view from my balcony was idyllic. The hotel is owned by a very nice lady, Margaret, who purchased it from it's... More

I was astounded to find this place on Trip Advisor. The last time I stayed there was 1980, and sorry trip advisor did not have a date that old for me to select.. This was a not well known among the genteel tourist crowd, but it had an almost mystical word of mouth status as an, exotic hangout for backpackers,... More

Stayed on the campsite with my own overland truck for three months and loved the place. Played cast away on a diet of fish and coco nuts.Swimming and looking for sea shells. Reading books.Love the place because there is nothing.

This campsite has the most idyllic setting on a piece of untouched paradise. Complete peace and quiet and such nice friendly locals. It has basic facilities which consist of toilets, showers, bar and restaurant. What more does one need? Just pitch your tent (or VW camper in our case) and relax and enjoy the daily comings and goings of the... More

The best thing about the twiga is the location. Beach is the most beautiful and quiet. Perfect place to relax. Prices of the rooms are too high copared to their quality. Towels were very dirty and in the shower water came really slow. We stayed both budget room and superior room. Buget room was 3000 ksh and the superior (included... More

We recently stayed at Twiga Lodge during an ulitmate frisbee tournament and had a horrible experience. Checking into the lodge we were not expecting the greatest of aminities but were still shocked by the lack of basic necesities. Our room was one of the beach views but definitly not worth the upgrade as the electricity frequently went out during the... More

Imagine the view when you pitch your tent right on the beach next to a palm tree. It is kind of windy so be sure to bring a strong tent, or rent one from the lodge. Showers and toilets are basic but ok. For only 300 KSh per person per night you can't expect much more. Talk nicely to the... More

Twiga Lodge aka Tiwi Beach camping is a amazing camping spot! Having a car is a must - unless you fancy a 4km walk from the main road. It's Only a short drive from Mombasa (45min to an hour) and a 20min drive down a nice and rugged dirt road - it's very well signed posted, so you won't get... More

Considering the prices of the rooms and camping its a fantastic place, we have stayed there 3 times now and enjoy every minute of it. It would be better to take your own vehicle as we do n yes the quality of the service and food is not the best but again considering what you pay compared to else where... More
