Mwazaro Mangrove Lodge
Mwazaro Beach is situated at the coast of the Shimoni Peninsula, 14 km from the border of Tanzania. On a street made of asphalt, at about 70 km south of Mombassa, in the direction of Lunga Lunga, there is a left diversion to the "Highway to Shimoni". After about 8 km you will be able to see the sign of Mwazaro Beach. Turn right there and after 1 km you will reach Magical Mwazaro.
Underneath your feet you won't feel anything else than fine snow-white grains of sand. "Where God makes Holidays". This is a legendary sentence that has been said by a missionary to his pilgrims, when they reached Mwazaro Beach. Never before people have been that close to heaven than in this moment and it is understandable why this place puts a spell on guests
from all over the world.
Only when the tide is low the ocean shows its secret. It is thus possible to see the 4,5 m big seashell, which is thousands of years old. A one-hour walk at the beach to the Ramisi Delta or a short trip to the nearby fishery port, which is at the same place as The Holy Baobab, are very recommended.
The cottages made of palm fronds are built in the white sand and offer - just like all accommodations at Mwazaro Beach - a beautiful view at the sea ...
All rooms in the new built Coral Houses have got their own bathroom, with fresh running hot and cold water and light. We are only using solar and wind energy ...
Before Hans von Loesch - author of a cookery book and cook in his spare time - came to Kenya, he studied traditional cuisine and the art of spice at Zanzibar at a grocers for three months. The result is menus cooked with extraordinary flavour-variety, with herbs and precious spices, like real saffron and ingredients, which are usually only known by name. A menu with always-fresh caught fish is obligatory, everything not too hot. The Mwazaro-Cuisine is very well known by gourmets all over the world.
