The Facilities

Karibu's expansive tropical grounds hide a small but private swimming pool which is the perfect place to cool off on a warm day.

The grounds contain a natural rock waterfall as well as their own organic garden that supplies the kitchen with fresh ingredients. Bird enthusiasts also have the chance to spot over 50 species of bird in the gardens.

The spa facilities offer massage and beauty treatments with the in-house masseuse. The open-air veranda restaurant offers a Mediterranean style menu along with some more classic favourites.
