Manda Bay lies within the Lamu archipelago, and enjoys the best of the beach and the bush. The Island is uniquely situated next to mangrove forests that provide an ideal nursery for breeding fish, and within casting distance of tropical waters that host a range of species hard to match elsewhere on the Kenyan coastline.
The reefs around this shoreline support an impressive array of life, the tides pushing baitfish that hungry predators chase.
An easy boat ride offshore will take you to hunting grounds where you can encounter world-record tuna and other Pelagics, as well as 5 species of billfish, making a slam a very real possibility in the right season.
Manda Bay is a family owned and run lodge privately tucked away, with spacious rooms, tropical ocean themed décor, and a warm, friendly atmosphere giving it distinct character. Meals are created from fresh, locally sourced seafood, which is hard to match.
With all manner of watercraft, very experienced local guides, and generations of fishing knowledge, this is a unique destination that will offer you a secluded retreat and the attraction of first-class fishing on your doorstep.
The ultimate in barefoot luxury … Unique is not a word that I generally just throw around, but it does have its place. A good example would be the blend of luxury and barefoot simplicity that exists at Manda Bay Lodge, a small boutique lodge on Manda Island in the Lamu Archipelago in northern Kenya.
