5 Days Lamu Island
Tabs

Lamu Island is a historic and relatively untouched destination which is now a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Many aspects of Lamu have hardly changed at all for at least a century.

The Old Town has seen the coming and going of the Omani Arabs, Turks and Portuguese and is considered to be of prime importance for Swahili culture. It is a delight to walk around and has some interesting museums. The island can only be reached by boat.

Lamu Archipelago - features a number of islands including Manda Island (with historic ruins at Takwa and Manda town) and Kiwayu Island, which is the access point for Kiunga Marine National Reserve, another great place for snorkeling.
