We know the idea of a luxurious beach group vacation thrills you. Join us for a fun filled 3days of beach fun, expedition and networking event to the Lamu Island. Kenya’s unique coastal culture is a product of a long and often troubled history of Arab, Portuguese and Swahili influences. Nowadays quiet and half-forgotten, the island of Lamu epitomizes this rich heritage. So what are the best things to do on Lamu?
0900hrs: All congregate at Wilson airport for our chartered flight departure. Flight time will be slightly overran hour over the varied landscapes of South Eastern Kenya. We will fly over the Mt. Kilimanjaro and the Tsavo West. Inflight guides will be at hand to make your experience even better. We will arrive in Manda Airstrip in time for a dhow transfer to our accommodation getting there in time for lunch and a short relaxation.
1500hrs: We will depart for an optional shella village tour learn the history of Swahili culture, the great architecture. Shella is a tangle of donkey-wide alleys, winding among tall stone townhouses, small thatched huts, few mosques and ruins and a spacious square ringed with some market stalls. Dinner and overnight at the luxurious hotel.
0900hrs: Full day dhow excursion of the sea surrounding the island. Go fishing, snorkeling, deep sea diving, Swimming and sand bathing while also enjoying the cool breeze and more of the Swahili culture. Lunch will be served aboard the dhow.
After lunch we will visit the Manda Island. This once held one of the Kenya coast’s largest settlements, but this once-thriving community abandoned the town in the 17th century. The cause is debated, but the most probable reason was the depletion of fresh water on the island. Today the coral stone ruins are a popular destination for a day trip from Lamu or Shella.
We will have a relaxed day, leisurely morning as well as free time to roam and visit other sites on the island.
Our return flight will be departing the island at 1530hrs for Nairobi arriving in Wilson airport at approximately 1630hrs.
