Immediately we entered the secluded garden, the warm smiles of the staff ensured our every need was attended and respected. The quiet and yet musical breezes in the lush palms, and vibrant colour of the tropical garden was a perfect place for the our last week in Africa. I am so glad that we did our homework and chose Lamu and Kijani rather than miss it again.
The bliss of sleeping all day on the pool lounge was the absolute best way to relax after a month of safari. Our room had a front balcony and an upstairs rooftop lounge balcony and we made lounging an art form. Our hosts and the other guests became our friends as we shared each days adventures over a luscious dinner or breakfast in the open dining area. It's incredible to me to know that for each meal we literally were served a freshly picked coconut or mango or freshly caught fish to order.
Kijani was the perfect 'mellow' we both wanted in this trip. I can see why many people we met keep returning here year after year.
