‘Kobe’, is the Kiswahili word for tortoise… Our staff have chosen the name because of the igloo shape of the tents, and the similarity to a tortoise.
The main camping area is on a tree-lined, sandy beach, meters away from the sea. We have shaded bandas with large tents which can be rented serviced or not.
You are more than welcome to pitch your own tent if you have one. Ablutions are nearby with showers (from a suspended bucket) and flush toilets.
As well as the main campsite there are two private campsites a minute’s walk from the beach, each with tent spots, BBQ stands.
The campsite has a small tuck shop which also takes orders for fresh bread, baked daily. We can also supply you with fresh fruit and vegetables on our resupply days (twice a week).
Lights and Water
Communal areas are lit and have plug points and USB charge points. There are no water or power points at the tent sites but the communal ablutions are serviced with brackish well water whilst saltwater is used for washing.
We are in a safe area and have guards onsite.
All activities currently available at Fish Eagle Point are extended to the campsite. These include diving, kayaking, snorkelling, dhow trips, fishing, cultural trips, and more. See activities pages.
If you would like cooked meals this can be arranged through the kitchen at the campsite or at the lodge, but please kindly let us know in advance. A full bar is available at the lodge.
We are 10 KM off the tar but the road is gravel and passable by most cars most of the time (although it is bumpy). You might find it a bit of a mission to get in, but once you do, it’s simply spiritual!
