Gaba Gaba House


“Our stay at the secluded, but centrally located, 'Gaba Gaba' in Lamu was relaxing but plenty of activities if you fancied it! We did site seeing (by donkey!), walking, swimming, boating not mention maybe a few too many 'sundowners' at well appointed traditional local hotel. In the fantastic house, Tommy and Abdala cared for all our catering and ensured we fitted in with the local goings on.”

“One of the most awe-inspiring trips a person can make. Great culture, great people, incredible setting. Gaba Gaba House is the most inspiringly unique property. We couldn't speak more highly of the food and the service. Full marks for the chef. We were so well taken care of. We were made to feel so comfortable and Tommy and Abdallah were really helpful. Highly recommended.”

“What a beautiful house and wonderful staff! We could not have had a better place to stay. Hopefully we can make another trip to Gaba Gaba House again soon.”

- Dharma, Sweden

“Gaba Gaba House has an exotic serenity and fabulous food - Tomi is a great cook! - and it's a great location for experiencing the quiet beauty and bustling village life of Shella's cultural richness. We also found it a convenient springboard for exploring Lamu and the adjacent island archipelago on day trips.”
