Distant Relatives Ecolodge & Backpackers is nestled between the peaceful Giriama village of Fumbini and the emerald waters of Kilifi Lagoon. At Distant Relatives, our philosophy has always been to make sure everyone feels welcome – we’re all “distant relatives”! At a time of climate emergency and growing social divide across the world, Distant Relatives aims to bring a message of optimism and inspiration to visitors from all walks of life. Built as an experimental model of environmentally and socially conscious living, Distant Relatives welcomes a diverse group of locals and travelers who share a common love of the world which surrounds them and a desire to live in harmony with our environment. Adventurers from around the world gather here to share stories, mingle with the local community, and enjoy some of Kenya’s most breathtaking oceanscapes. Just 60km drive away from the bustling streets of Mombasa and the tourist center of Malindi, Kilifi offers a refreshing taste of pristine untouched coastline.
Children of any age are welcome. Children aged 18 years and above are considered adults at this property.
