Traveller Reviews

  • The trip was beyond amazing and the lodge surpassed all initial expectations. The staff were fabulous and catered to all our needs. We have already decided that we will be making a trip back to Africa a yearly vacation after experiencing this last trip!

"Saruni Ocean promises to be one of the top end lodges on the Mombasa south coast – one can look forward to tranquil walks on the 6km beach, diving and snorkeling in nearby marine parks or pure pampering at their spa. Set away from the crowds further north this is perfect place to unwind after a safari"
