Distant Relatives Ecolodge and Backpackers is located in the ancient coastal town of Kilifi, on the coast of Kenya, situated midway between Mombasa and Malindi. More specifically it is squeezed between the village of Fumbene, a community-owned forest and the beautiful emerald-blue Kilifi creek.
The name ‘Distant Relatives’ is a nod to the prevalent Kenyan practice of appropriation, but it also accurately sums up the central principle and aim of our operation; that is, to bring people together to learn and share with one another and build lasting, positive relationships based on an understanding and appreciation of community and sustainability.
Accommodation is offered in dormitories, family and group rooms, en-suite private rooms, and safari tents. Camping is also available. On-site facilities include a bar, restaurant, self-catering kitchen, and a swimming pool. Guests will have access to a private beach and jetty.
We are pleased that Distant Relatives has already become a central meeting point for all the backpackers visiting Kenya’s coast, as well as for those with an interest in alternative and more sustainable living practices.
