  • Kenya – Watamu Treehouse and Malindi

    Experience the ultimate seaside fairytale… Consider rounding off your Kenyan safari experience with a stay at Watamu Treehouse where flair, fantasy, turquoise waters and white sands combine to deliver the most fitting finale to your bush and beach break.


    Watamu is a small town that is located approximately 15km south of Malindi and 105km north of Mombasa on the coast of Kenya. Watamu Treehouse is situated on a picturesque stretch of beach just north of Watamu town. Nestled in a quiet residential area, it is ideally located opposite the marine reserve’s coral gardens, away from the bustling hotels and tourists in Watamu.


    Activities at Watamu Treehouse including morning yoga sessions at the top of the tower, spa treatments in your room, sunset kayak expeditions to Mida Creek, snorkelling and dolphin boat excursions, sunset dhow cruises, walks on the white sand beach for the most popular ice cream in Kenya, trips to the Watamu Turtle Watch Project, trips to the mangrove forest and boardwalk, birdwatching walks and visits to the Bio-Ken Snake Park, Gede ruins, butterfly centre and local primary school.

    How to reach Watamu: Guests who wish to extend their vacation by adding this beach extension can reach Watamu via Malindi from either Nairobi or Mombasa.

    From Mombasa it is a fascinating 2.5 hour drive heading north. However, if you’re looking for convenience, there are one-hour daily flights to Malindi from Nairobi Wilson Airport with Kenya Airways, Air Kenya and Fly540. Watamu Treehouse is a short 25-minute transfer away from Malindi Airport.

    Best time to visit: If you love the heat, dolphins and various water sports, the best time to visit Watamu Treehouse is from December to March. However if kite surfing is what makes you tick then June and July are windy and perfect for improving your skills. The most popular months to visit the region tend to be from July until late September thanks to the enjoyable temperatures, whereas May and November are considered low season because it can rain. That said even in these months the weather is still lovely for most of the day.
