Mida Eco Camp
Mida Ecocamp is a community project, that has been built by private donations to assist a small community on the Kenyan coast to help themselves. Every person should have a right to have access to medical help, schooling and sufficient food and this is what the 2000 people of Mida Creek are missing right now. Mida Ecocamp in a not-for profit organisation and is directly linked to Hilfswerk Mida Ecocamp, a registered charity in Germany. We believe, that education is the key to development and have hence mostly concentrated on the school in Mida with our support. Additionally, the camp creates multiple employment opportunities for people from our village who are being trained, opens a market for local farmers, tour-guides and last, but not least it will help to conserve the threatened environment of Mida Creek, a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve. Away from most places over-run with tourists, we offer a platform bar/restaurant with scenic views, overlooking the Arabuko-Sokoke Forest and the mangrove coast and an amazing bird-life. The delicious Giriama food is cooked on two fires in a yet very clean tiled kitchen is delicious and spicy. You can opt for a cold beer or try some of the local mnazi (coconut-wine). We have different types of accommodation in traditional huts built in various styles as well as a small campsite with secluded pitches.
