The Location

Shimoni Village is situated along the sunny Southern coast of Kenya. Firefly sits about a kilometer or North of Shimoni Jetty, about 48 Kilometers from Ukunda.

Road Instructions;  Drive south 35kms from Ukunda to Kanana which is just over 2kms from Ramisi bridge on a good tarmac road, then turn left at Kanana to join a dirt road for 13kms to Shimoni village. When you reach the end of the dirt road turn left, that is North and proceed past the Kenya Police, Customs and Excise, past Shimoni Reef Lodge past three gates of other residences until you see a gate painted Firefly Ocean Camp.

The Campsite

Sea Front Tents

We have 2 large luxury ocean front tents that have a beautiful sea view and their own deck. Each has a fridge, fan and kettle. Both tents have a comfortable double bed with the option to add an additional small bed for a child or third person.

King and Queen Safari Tents

We also have big comfortable bush tents with 2 single beds or 1 double bed and a fan and an outside seating area with small table and two chairs.

Small bush tents can have 1 or 2 single beds or sometimes a double bed. All tents have fans and seats outside. A short walk to the swimming pool area where you get the sea view.


We have cleared and flattened space under the tress with soft shaded sands for those who would prefer a little more independence. There are camping tents, mattresses and sheets for rent should one find themselves in need of treat.
