Accommodation and Transport
Eco Visitors will stay at Lallie’s House, situated within the Local Ocean Conservation compound. We have four lovely rooms with two beds in each room and each with its own en-suite shower room with a toilet, sink and large shower area. Depending on the number of other Eco Visitors you may be expected to share a room with one other person. We will always separate rooms by gender.
All the beds have mosquito nets, and there are mosquito screens in the windows. We will provide bed linen and towels and they will be changed regularly for you.
Each of the rooms at Lallie’s house opens out onto a beautiful, sunny courtyard where there are two large shaded seating and dining areas and a plunge pool to cool off after a busy day.
There is a shared kitchen for preparing your own breakfast and dinner. We will provide lunch on working days.
We have a great local cook who prepares traditional African dishes using locally produced ingredients.
Matatus (mini vans), Tuktuks (3 wheelers), Pikipikis or Bodabodas (motorbikes) are readily available and not expensive. You travel at your own risk.. But we can advise you on trust-worthy!
