Blue, crystal clear waters with tropical fish, white sand beaches surrounded by Baobab and mango trees and bougainvillea and frangipani. The difference? The water isn't salty...AND it is in the middle of Africa!
Kaya Mawa is a delight. Enchanting rooms set on the beach or out into the lake. Dining each night is set in a different location. Lovely staff who will do anything for you. But don't forget, you are on an island on a lake in the middle of Africa...so if you want European style and security of supply, it isn't the place for you! And, I have read a couple of poor reviews of this place and can only say - you are right that if you want air conditioning and are frightened of ants or NON-stinging insects then this isn't the place for you - and what are you doing in Africa in the first place? If, on the other hand, you don't get stressed when the plane hasn't brought the plain yoghurt and you have to endure fresh fruit instead and if you appreciate the quirkiness of the extraordinary, then do go here. We made it the end of a safari and climbing trip and it was perfect.
Don't bring clothes and jewellery but bring a sarong and flip flops - that's all you'll need.
If you want night life and action, forget it. If you want beauty and things that are really out of the ordinary, this is the place for you!
