GARDEN of LIFE - the Eco-Lodge with dedication !

travel beyond and live life - touch life - experience life


Travelling broadens the horizon, ennobles the mind and dispels our prejudices ! (Oscar Wilde)


 Do you want to give your holiday meaning? You would like to immerse into the real Africa and experience people and culture up close? You would like to live in a tropical paradise and be touched by a magical environment? You can skip to lay on the beach every day, participate in the animation program or share the pool with 100 other people ?

Then you are exactly right with us ! Welcome to the GARDEN of LIFE - because Kenya has so much more to offer than sea and safari !

We are a small, fine Eco-Lodge on the edge of a small village with the melodious name Matuga. Only a few minutes away from the most beautiful beaches of Africa, our 20,000 m2 property is situated on the south coast of Kenya in the famous "Shimba Hills", where the last coastal rainforests of East Africa are found

 We combine your vacation with experiences that touch you. We want to build bridges - between your culture and the culture of our local people. We would like to show you how the people here really live. And we are committed to social and environmentally friendly projects.

As our guest you can, if you wish, join us and get personally involved in project work. Be it by supporting one of our projects or by sponsoring a family, water, malaria or school project.

In the spirit of the Africans here, the joy of life should never be neglected. Therefore we have put together a rich offer for you, from which you can choose and combine freely. From sporting to social, from culinary to adventurous. Whether it is an individual, professional safari or experiencing dolphins snorkeling/diving, whether you cook your meal with women from the village or watch on site how water gives life - with us you will encounter the real Africa.

Exciting - Authentic - Honest - Moving
