Banda Porrini is enclosed by dense indigenous bush and you can hear the sounds of monkeys and the crashing Indian Ocean waves. Although you do not have sea view, the private beach on the cliffs is just about 20 m away. A simple but cozy place.

The space
A solar installation caters for lighting and charging of small electronic equipment such as phones and cameras (24/7). Please note that the installation is, however, not suitable for high-energy consuming devices such as e.g. electric cooler boxes.

Since there is no ground water on the island, its inhabitants have to entirely rely on rainwater collected in communal cisterns. Hence, fresh water is a scarce commodity. Attached to the bush hut is a private urine-eco-toilet and shower area. A private, conventional flush toilet (using sea water) is in the common bath house in a distance of approx. 15 m.

Where you’ll be

Wasini Island, Kenya

Wasini Island is called by many guests “paradise on earth”. At first, this might sound like another inane slogan but Lamu’s little sister truly is a unique haven of peace and tranquility. The hustle and bustle of Kenya’s coastal beaches seem a 1000 miles away. Unpleasant companions such as beach boys and pickpockets are left behind on the mainland. We deem the island to be one of the safest places on earth.
Life on Wasini is mainly influenced by Swahili culture and the surrounding sea including the magnificent Kisite Mpunguti Marine National Park.
Our laid-back home has plenty to offer to the traveler who seeks a nature sanctuary to refresh body and soul.

"For instance, on the planet Earth, man had always assumed that he was more intelligent than dolphins because he had achieved so much - the wheel, New York, wars and so on - whilst all the dolphins had ever done was muck about in the water having a good time. But conversely, the dolphins had always believed that they were far more intelligent than man - for precisely the same reasons."
