Three-Day Vacations to Lamu Island

Daily Private Tour

From/ to Nairobi Area

Come to Lamu Town to see and feel a beautifully preserved piece of history. Walking Lamu’s narrow streets of coral stone you will experience perhaps the oldest and best-preserved Swahili community in East Africa.

No cars are allowed on Lamu – donkeys set the pace here. With its courtyards, verandas and elaborate architecture, you’ll feel as though you’ve entered another world and another time in Lamu.

In keeping with the retreat-like atmosphere, Lamu hosts religious festivals and is a study center for Islamic and Swahili cultures.

There’s much to be discovered in this charming, historic town. Stroll nearby Shella beach and enjoy a sail on an authentic dhow. Everything about the Lamu experience is serene and yet also unforgettable.

From Nairobi, you’ll fly to the airstrip at neighbouring Manda Island and then take a small boat to Lamu Island and the village. All ages are welcome on this special tour.

Tour Highlights:

  • Scenery, people & local life styles
  • Scenic over-view as you fly from Mombasa to Lamu
  • Dhow experience ex-Manda Airstrip - to Lamu or Shella
