Peponi must be the perfect place to relax on Lamu. It's around a 45 minute walk into town but there's a free boat in around 9 am and coming back around 12. Service is great. Carol (the owner) and her team including Andrew, Benny, Abdul and co are very efficient and helpful and made the trip great fun. Food is excellent at Peponi and it's easy to run up quite a bill. Breakfast was included and was marvellous. We took the opportunity to go and see turtles being released into the sea by an ex poacher - one of Carol's local initiatives - and that was most heart warming. Lamu itself is a great place to visit with it's tight donkey sized maze of streets and shops. 2 great cafes at each end make enjoyable goals after a long walk in each direction. We stayed at Peponi at the beginning of the season so it was quiet and the place was just getting up and running. Some 'touching up' was still being done and it felt a little as everyone was getting tuned up for the season. We had a most comfortable and enjoyable time however and would thoroughly recommend this place to anyone in Kenya for a holiday - it made for a fantastic post safari chill out before we flew home - a wonderful end to an amazing holiday.
