This is the second trip we have done with A&K. (The first was in 1999.) We were very impressed with A&K on the first trip. We were even more impressed with A&K on the second trip. Consequently, we are already considering a third trip with A&K – to Egypt in March 2014.

Msamweni means the land of Sable Antelope on Kenya's South Coast. Msambweni House is in a quiet, unspoilt, unique setting on the beach surrounded by 28 acres of natural land. It stands on a 40 feet high cliff and is safely surrounded by a typical caral wall. Msambweni house is luxury uncompromised. The main house with its lovely high ceilings, has three spacious, luxurious ensuite rooms with private verandahs, a luxury tented room and two extra rooms on the second floor. Not far from the main house are two Lamu villas well-appointed with their own infinity swimming pools and Jacuzzi facing the sea. Msambweni Beach House is perfect for travellers who wish to escape to a quiet piece of unspoilt paradise and do not require an array of activities.
