Experience Lamu

Our lives are ruled by the wind, moon and tide, so the activities on offer also vary depending on the time of year and tide. But don't worry, on arrival at Peponi one of our management team will talk you through a map of the island and what is best to do while you're here. We will tailor your stay based on what you would like to do; you can choose to spend your time exploring the islands and ocean or make the most of the view, wind down and relax.
