I was astounded to find this place on Trip Advisor. The last time I stayed there was 1980, and sorry trip advisor did not have a date that old for me to select.. This was a not well known among the genteel tourist crowd, but it had an almost mystical word of mouth status as an, exotic hangout for backpackers,...

Stayed on the campsite with my own overland truck for three months and loved the place. Played cast away on a diet of fish and coco nuts.Swimming and looking for sea shells. Reading books.Love the place because there is nothing.

This campsite has the most idyllic setting on a piece of untouched paradise. Complete peace and quiet and such nice friendly locals. It has basic facilities which consist of toilets, showers, bar and restaurant. What more does one need? Just pitch your tent (or VW camper in our case) and relax and enjoy the daily comings and goings of the...

The best thing about the twiga is the location. Beach is the most beautiful and quiet. Perfect place to relax. Prices of the rooms are too high copared to their quality. Towels were very dirty and in the shower water came really slow. We stayed both budget room and superior room. Buget room was 3000 ksh and the superior (included...

We recently stayed at Twiga Lodge during an ulitmate frisbee tournament and had a horrible experience. Checking into the lodge we were not expecting the greatest of aminities but were still shocked by the lack of basic necesities. Our room was one of the beach views but definitly not worth the upgrade as the electricity frequently went out during the...

Imagine the view when you pitch your tent right on the beach next to a palm tree. It is kind of windy so be sure to bring a strong tent, or rent one from the lodge. Showers and toilets are basic but ok. For only 300 KSh per person per night you can't expect much more. Talk nicely to the...

Twiga Lodge aka Tiwi Beach camping is a amazing camping spot! Having a car is a must - unless you fancy a 4km walk from the main road. It's Only a short drive from Mombasa (45min to an hour) and a 20min drive down a nice and rugged dirt road - it's very well signed posted, so you won't get...

Considering the prices of the rooms and camping its a fantastic place, we have stayed there 3 times now and enjoy every minute of it.

We stayed here for one night camping in the campsite It costs $3 so you cant go wrong!!! The camping ground is a little uneven but we pitched a good area. There is running water and plenty of trees to tie a washing line. Best of all you are right on the sea front. Its amazing the views are spectacular...
