Enjoy delicious meals three times a day which are freshly prepared by the Kizingoni Beach House chef using local ingredients. Otherwise try it yourself, and prepare your meals, after discussing the menu with the chef, who will then organise a shopping trip to Lamu. Certain items (meat, cheese, condiments) are required to be purchased by the guests themselves, although fresh fish from the market is sourced by the chef.
