Kizingo is far, far away from this stereotype. In so many ways it is the antidote to 21st century life. 8 Beach Banda's (rooms) right on a unspoiled 9 Mile Beach. Real Robinson Crusoe but with Cocktails and a hot shower :-)
Kizingo is far, far away from this stereotype. In so many ways it is the antidote to 21st century life.
Kizingo is a beach and coastal wilderness. Nature, completely untouched, has been left to her own devices. You’ll share the beach with native birds, driftwood and scuttling crabs. There you’ll find a true sense of the infinity of time; and the timelessness of an old Africa.
As one guest put it, life at Kizingo is “dangerously relaxed”. You’ll eat deliciously fresh fish, fruit, vegetables and home-made bread. You’ll gather in the early evening for drinks around the bar. Dressing for dinner means, at most, a clean shirt and kikoy, never a tie or shoes (“no news, no shoes” to quote another guest).
Kizingo is, for many, a life-changing experience.
Kizingo does not have:
television, video, dvd, computer games, jet skis, jet lag, telephones, a conference centre, retail display cabinets in Reception (in fact, it doesn’t even have a Reception), newspapers, a swimming pool, hassle, hurly-burly, hairdryers, quad bikes, loud or piped music, people who sell things on the beach, minibars, air conditioning, a single pretension, inflated prices, much of a profit motive, anything artificial…
Kizingo does have:
wild, untouched beaches; sand that’s talcum powder fine; dry, equatorial heat made luxurious by whispering wind; sunsets so breathtaking they stretch credulity; a blessed near-total absence of mosquitoes; calmness but not stillness, because everything sways and dances to nature; wonderful local staff; a happy, hospitable atmosphere; the eclectic and often eccentric company of people you won’t meet at home; the divine freedom to do little or nothing, or to swim with dolphins, to witness a turtle laying her eggs, to do heroic battle with serious fish, to potter, to explore, to water-ski, to kite surf…
Kizingo is: exquisite simplicity, not pseudo-sophistication; always natural, never synthetic; real, not contrived; timeless, not transitory; deep tissue massage for the soul and spirit; nourishment for the mind; man as nature’s junior partner; life as it should be.
