Sitting above the emerald waters of Kilifi Lagoon is Distant Relatives Ecolodge and Backpackers. Formed with the intention of creating a space which honors people and the environment alike, Distant Relatives embraces guests from all walks of life to visit our untouched piece of paradise.
Our space is designed to promote socially and environmentally conscious living. Our accommodations work in cohesion with the natural world surrounding them. From our permaculture garden to eco-toilets, we try to minimize our footprint in every way possible.
Experience some Kilifi magic by snorkeling in the crystal clear waters on Bofa beach, watching the sunset on a traditional dhow boat or swimming in a sea of bioluminescent stars on our creek beach.
We hope to welcome you home soon!
*Kindly note that at the moment, we're having a challenge with our swimming pool which has a big leak in it, so are planning to do a repair in approximately one month, but we are not able to be filling it anymore due to the lack of water available in Kilifi as well as the high financial (majorly) and environmental impact of doing this by water lorries, which would cost us approximately a thousand dollars a week. We would still be very happy to welcome you, but want to be clear about this current challenge to avoid disappointment during your stay!
Therefore, if you would like to still book with us, we're very happy to have you and we will offer you a 20% discount due to the lack of swimming pool at this time!*
