Here adventurers from around the world gather to share tales of the road and mingle with the local community.
Walk up from the emerald waters of Kilifi Creek into hills of Baobab, bougainvillea, mango and the noise of goats and village chatter, to find Distant Relatives: an experimental model of environmentally and socially conscious living. Here adventurers from around the world gather to share tales of the road and mingle with the local community.
Days are spent exploring forests, sailing the lagoon on traditional dhows or relaxing in the leafy gardens. Nights are wild or tranquil as one desires; stay in for a movie, a moonlit walk, a foolish moon party; or take a TukTuk into town for some wild times in Kilifi’s bars and restaurants.
Distant Relatives is staffed by travelers and locals ready with the best advice for your East African trip. We look forward to welcoming you with Kenya’s typically generous tradition of hospitality!

If you are coming by local transport (matatu), you can jump off at Kilifi’s Tusky’s supermarket or at the bus station (aka “stage”).
From here, many motorbikes (“piki-pikis”) and Tuk-Tuks will be able to take you to our place usually for about Ksh 100.
If the driver does not seem to know about us, tell him it is in “Fumbene [Foom-bini]” (name of the neighborhood) about 300m after “Seahorse Lodge” (aka “Sea Laguna Lodge”). We do not yet have signs along the road.
If you would like us to organize a vehicle/taxi to pick you up from Mombasa, Watamu, Malindi, or elsewhere, or in case of any problem or any question, do not hesitate to give us a call
