Kijani House is a wonderful place and I hope that people will overcome security concerns and spend a few days there. I went with my family to Lamu in April 2011 and we had booked a different guest house which turned out to be a disaster. So we ran all over town looking for another place and when we came to Kijani they were super helpful. Found us all rooms, we needed three - and they charged us EA resident rates even though only one of us was Kenyan. The rooms were beautiful, there are two pools, in which my son spent virtually the entire time, the location is wonderful, and the food is really nice. The staff set up a dhow trip out to Manda Island for us and it was fabulous! We had a picnic lunch from the boat and it was the tastiest food I've had in a long time. It is a great family place to stay or a nice place for a romantic weekend. This is the first review I've written on trip advisor, but these folks were so helpful I wanted to recommend them. Lamu is such a wonderful place and Kijani House will ensure that you have a great time. I hope to get back there soon!
