COVID-19 safety measures in place!

Discover Africa's natural beauty in a private retreat at Diani Beach away from mass tourism and the hustle and bustle of a typical hotel.

Enjoy the peace and quiet and experience the African easygoingness along the lines of "Hakuna Matata" without having to relinquish the comfort of a luxury hotel. Villa Kapungu perfectly combines the advantages of both a private holiday home and an elite hotel; Our well trained staff looks after you while you have the whole compound with a private pool all to yourself - so you can enjoy your stay to the fullest.

Explore the unique nature and wildlife parks of Eastern Africa. Thanks to its central location Villa Kapungu is an ideal base for daytrips and safaris. Let yourself become enchanted by the breathtaking and picturesque flora and fauna and get spoiled by the friendliness and warmth of the people in this wonderful country

Villa Kapungu consists of the main house, a guest house, a private pool (20m x 6m), a 2000m2 (21500ft2) private garden, a roofed carport for two cars and a storing place.

The estate is located in the heart of Diani Beach (which is regarded as one of the most beautiful palm beaches in the world) within the gated community 'Msitu Kwetu' (Swahili: jungle dream); only a 10 minute walk from the beach and offers absolute privacy in it's 2000m2 (21500ft2) tropical garden.

The Villa Kapungu main house has a living area of 300m2 (3230ft2) spread across three levels with an exclusive panorama platform on top with a breathtaking 360 degree roundview. From here you can enjoy the sunrise over the coral reef of the Indian ocean in the east and the sunset over the shimba hills in the west. Different species of monkeys (the rare and special Colobus among them) in the bordering bushland can also be easily observed here.

Aside from the extraordinary views from the platform, the main house also provides a living area with a gallery, balcony, terrace and a kitchen. On the ground floor and in the guest house are a total of four spacious bedrooms with four exclusive ensuite-bathrooms. The entire estate is equipped with top-quality, african-'lamu'-styled furniture combined with European luxury.

A trained chef, housemaid and gardener (who is also responsible for the daily cleaning of the swimming pool) will look after your wellbeing during your stay. On the day of your arrival the chef will discuss with you your preferences regarding meals and shopping. If desired, fresh seafood can be delivered daily to the premises by the fisher.

A masseur can be requested if required. Taxis can be called at any time and there are also car rental opportunities.


If you have any special wishes or requirements, please contact us and we will try to accommodate you. We would also be happy to book a safari for you in accordance with your wishes and requirements.

not included in the price:

- tip for staff

Regarding electricity: We charge electricity extra and automatically subtract it from your security deposit at the end of your stay. Upon your arrival and departure, one of our staff members will show you the electricity meter. Based on those readings, we charge 20 Kenya Shillings (roughly 0,20€) per kWh. Please be aware that there are two A/C units installed which are running 24/7 for the benefit of our guests and for the longevity of our equipment. The weekly charge for electricity depends a lot on our guests as everyone has different preferences. Some leave the lights, water heater and the pool pumb on day and night, while others only use such things as needed. This will reflect on the final charge so it is difficult to give an estimated charge beforehand. However, just to give our future guests a rough idea, the electricity bill of most guests lies between 40€ and 60€ per week.

Because Wifi/Internet access is important to our guests, we recently installed wifi in the main house which can be used for free. There is no guarantee for availability though and if it does not work or does not work good enough, we do not give discounts and so on.

Tip for staff: While the final amount is up to you and depends on your satisfaction, we suggest to give 1000 Kenya Shillings (roughly 10€) to each staff member per week.
