Driftwood Club, Malindi, Kenya


On the shores of the Indian Ocean, at the edge of the ancient settlement of Malindi lies The Driftwood, nestled into the Kenyan coast, with a charm all of its own. As a small and privately owned hotel, we have particularly enjoyed developing a sense of warmth and familiarity that sees our guests returning time and again.

We like to keep things small and can accommodate just 70 guests in our cottages and villas, which are constructed in the traditional coastal style and brought up to date with air conditioning and other modern amenities. All the accommodation has been designed to maximise privacy, whilst being close to the open-air bar and dining area and within just a few feet of our pool, private beach and the blue waters of the Indian Ocean.

Our long serving and experienced team are on hand to offer some of the best food in Malindi and to arrange some of the many activities that are available from here. These include deep-sea fishing, scuba diving and snorkelling, windsurfing, kite-surfing and water ski-ing on Mida Creek and bird watching on the Sabaki Delta or in the Arabuko-Sokoke forest. For those who simply want to relax, we have 4 miles of white beach to walk, a small treatment room and plenty of space to find peace and quiet.

‘The lodge is full of charm and magic for those seeking to lose themselves in the moment’

Karen Country Club, Nairobi, Kenya


The Karen Country Club is a family oriented club, founded in 1937 and prides itself in being one of the oldest golf clubs in Kenya. A large part of the 18-hole course was built on the former coffee estate developed by the Danish pioneer Karen Blixen, whose life and times were depicted in the lyrical film `Out of Africa`. Indeed, the shade trees from her coffee plantation still dominate parts of the golf course, eighty years after they were planted.

Tucked away in a Pleasant forested area overlooking the second hole of the golf course, The Residences at Karen embody comfort, luxury and serenity,perfect for any getaway. You will wake up to the vast bird life chirping away welcoming the morning.
