Getting Here

 

Kenya has three international airports; Jomo Kenyatta International Airport in Nairobi, Moi International Airport in Mombasa and Moi International Airport in Eldoret.
 

These airports service numerous international carriers including the national airline Kenya Airways. Kenya has good connections to destinations throughout Europe, the Asia- Pacific region, USA and Africa.

Lamu in Kenya can be reached by air from Kenya’s main airports in Nairobi, Mombasa and Malindi. All flights land on Manda Island, Lamu. Our guests are greeted by hotel staff upon arrival at Manda Airport and are transferred in one of our boats to the hotel.

Driving to Lamu

 

It is also possible to visit us by land although it is a bumpy seven hour drive from Mombasa and at least four hours from Malindi. You will have to park your car on the mainland at the Mokowe jetty and take a boat from there to Shela.
