Lamu Excursion, Lamu short safari from either Mombasa or Nairobi


Lamu is one of Kenya's oldest towns on an island that is part of the Lamu Archipelago, off the Indian Ocean coast. Formed in the fourteenth century by Arab traders, Lamu Town's ancient culture is drawn from many sources. Its long exotic tale can be read in every step down the narrow streets, in the rich carvings of the heavy wooden doors, and in the markets where life continues unchanged since it's formation!

A magical place of great natural beauty from its rolling sand dunes to the depths of the Indian Ocean's sparkling waters, tranquil white beaches and simple culture, Lamu is steeped in history. The three villages of Shela, Kipungani and Matondoni are hubs of timeless customs - from fishing, traditional dhow building - the only mode of transport between the islands - and trade.

For the full, white-sand experience you need to go to Shela Beach, Kipungani Island, here you are guaranteed a private stretch of beach. The island holds two incredible spectacles - the century old Maulid Festival, and more recently, the Lamu Cultural Festival which takes place annually. They incorporate cultural and sporting activities, including boat races and the main highlight, donkey races.

Must do activities include dhow trips, swimming, snorkelling with dolphins at Kinyika, kayaking, romantic beach excursions, sailing with toppers and wind sailing. The white, endless coastlines are also ideal for romantic beach weddings.
