The Location

Shimoni Village is situated along the sunny Southern coast of Kenya. Firefly is situated about 48 Kilometers from the infamous Diani Beach, and approximately 50 minutes drive.

Directions:  Drive from Diani Beach up to Ukunda, then south on the Lunga Lunga highway 35 kms to Kanana  (just under 4kms from Ramisi bridge). Turn left at Kanana to join our new tarmac road for 13kms to Shimoni. At the end of this road turn left, and proceed past the Kenya Police, Customs and Excise,  past five gates of other residences until you see a gate painted Firefly Ocean Camp.
