FROM THE MARA TO TSAVO
Kenya is certainly amongst the best safari destinations worldwide. The spectacle of the great migration in the Maasai Mara is a marvel of our world. But also parks such as Lake Nakuru & Naivasha, Amboseli or Tsavo all offer their unique highlight. The latter one, Tsavo east & west, are located only a quick 1.5 hour drive away from Temple Point. Which makes it the only safari park in the world located in such close proximity to a tropical Beach. We offer our guest various options from a day-safari to a magical over night safari for one ore more nights in selected safari camps in one or more parks of Kenya. Get in touch and our team will tailor make an experience just for you. Including, flights, private safari 4×4, camp selection or even hot-air-ballon rides.

Everything is better Under the Sea
Something a bit Different
Marafa (Hell’s Kitchen)
After millions of years, the forces of sand, wind and rain have created one of the most fascinating natural spectacles in all of Africa. Not far from Malindi, the bizarre canyons and colourful rock formations of “Hell’s Kitchen”, as the locals refer to it, rise into the sky.
According to an age-old Kenyan legend, the deep abysses of Hell’s Kitchen were formed by divine anger. Rumour has it that there once was a rich but decadent family that took great pleasure in bathing in the highly precious milk of their cows. God punished them by ordering the ground beneath their village to open up and swallow the entire family.
The Blue Safari
Thanks to our special location our guests can enjoy the excitement of a safari not only in the Kenyan savanna but also visiting the residents of the Indian Ocean and the Mida Creek. Our hotel boat and its captain are waiting for you with a very special day out on the water. This safari takes you out to see the dolphins (seasonal), swim and snorkel at the marine park’s coastline and end the day inside the creek’s mangrove channels, with its diverse bird population. As a special add-on we will take you on a private BBQ to one of our secret spots in the creek.
Local Ocean Conservation
One of the highlights in Watamu is clearly the Local Ocean Conservation, also known as Watamu’s turtle watch. They monitor and protect nesting female sea turtles, their nests and hatchlings. If turtles accidentally get caught by local fishermen they tag and release them to save these majestic animals and monitor their population. Sick turtles are brought to their rehabilitation center where you can visit the turtles and learn everything about their incredible work. During nesting season you can adopt a nest and will get informed as soon as the hatchlings crawl into the ocean. Please get in touch with us if you want to adopt a nest or click the button below to donate to the Local Ocean Conservation directly.
BioKen Snake Farm
Visit the internationally renowned Bio Ken Snake Farm, the most important producer of antidote in all of East Africa. Discover 30 different poisonous and non-poisonous species. Learn about these feared but also fascinating creatures. In the end you might want to pet them, because they’ll let you.
Entangled by ancient baobab trees, the ruins of this once thriving Arabic-Swahili settlement rise from the heart of the Kenyan jungle. Listen to the mystical silence of the ancient buildings and learn about their history. To this very day nobody knows why they were so suddenly abandoned in the late 16th century.
Dhows are the traditional boats of the Indian Ocean. They are believed to have been developed by Arabic or Indian cultures between 600 BC to 600 AC. The design of the boats hardly changed since, giving them a rustic and cosy feeling. At the hotel we offer private hires, sundowner trips, special dinners and booze cruises until the sun lets the moon take over. This is one of our favourite trips because of its incredible setting under the stars.
Mount Kenya National Park was created in 1949 to protect the mountain and its environment from development and destruction. The Mount Kenya Forest Reserve encircles the national park and the two areas, combined, are a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
