Full Description: Kisite-Mpunguti MarinePark & Reserve is located on the far south coast of Kenya, off Shimoni and South of Wasini Island in Kwale District. The complex covers a marine area with four small islands surrounded by coral-reef.
The Kisite Marinepark and Mpunguti Marinereserve around it is the best
Park in Kenya with little damage/bleaching to its coral due to global warming
reason being the drop off from 50 feet to 1300 guaranteeing a constant
flow of fresh/cool water.
All four islands are for sale and make a unique opportunity.
0,8 ha freehold title
- 3,7 ha leasehold title 99 years / approved for hospitality business
- 5,0 ha
- 12,1 ha
They are located off Kenyas Southcoast close to the Tanzania border.
The nearest airstrip is 15 minutes flight from Mombasa in Funzi.
By road it takes 2 hrs from Mombasa plus a boatride of some 20 min.
Nobody has ever lived on these pristine islands, pure nature, coconut crabs,
birdlife and turtles nesting.
The smallest island of 0,8 ha is visited by some 70000 snorklers and divers p.a.
Few tourists dive around the bigger three islands.
The water around the islands is controlled by KWS (Kenya Wildlife Service)
just like any other Park like Tsavo. Fishing around the little island is strictly forbidden. Around the bigger three however ONLY owners or residents may sportfish/flyfish, no trolling, and these are fishrich waters.
We feel these islands are an ideal opportunity for a multinational
longing to make a statement on its commitment to the environment or a
private developer for villas or resorts.
Each island belongs to a Kenyan Limited company, i.e. a sale would mean a simple transfer of shares, no
landcontrolboard, no stampduty.
