Welcome to Firefly, the perfect land base for marine adventurers. Nestled beneath the lush green canopies of Shimoni’s coral rag forest, a safe haven for fireflies and a wonderful place to see shooting stars. The safari style tents are both spacious and comfortable giving you a good nights rest ready for a day of fun under the sun in the sea! Take advantage of gorgeous sea views, a luxurious & large swimming pool with lounge area and access to the famous Kisite Marine Park to snorkel and/or dive

The space
Your ocean view safari tyle tents offer the perfect opportunity to connect with both beach and bush. Nestled under lush forest canopy, your tent is perfectly placed for sweeping views of the Indian Ocean and Wasini Island. With the exotic feel of being in a safari tent, your accommodation is actually perched on a raised platform with both a private deck and private balcony extending above the water. With a double bed, fridge, kettle and electric fan you couldn't be more comfortable. Fall asleep to the sound of the gentle ocean, and wake to the chirps of the resident birdlife and shreeks of the many local fish eagle. Toilets and showers are shared with the few other tents we have scattered throughout the forest, but with 10 toilets and 8 showers they outnumber the number of tents :)

Where you’ll be

Shimoni, Kenya

Shimoni is truly the last of its kind. A traditional coastal Kenyan fishing village, just about as far south of Kenya as you can get. With authentic and happy villagers, a laidback atmosphere, and a well preserved forest, we are situated in paradise. The access you get to Kisite Marine Park and Wasini Island (through Pilli Pipa Dhow Safari) is the main advantage of staying at Firefly Ocean Camp. With world class diving and snorkelling as well as dolphin, humpback whale and whaleshark spotting, we are the perfect base for your ocean adventures.

Passion for diving and snorkeling. We live close to Kisite Marine Park, perfect for this and dolphin spotting too. Our home is yours. Thrilled to have the chance to live somewhere more remote surrounded by nature’s best.
