LAMU

Airkenya flies daily to Lamu one of Kenya's oldest towns on an island off the coast. A magical place of great natural beauty Lamu is steeped in history from its rolling sand dunes to the depths of the Indian Ocean's sparkling waters. Lamu's ancient culture is drawn from many sources and 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 the 14th century.

Between the various islands of the archipelago‚ or along the coast‚ the main form of transport is the traditional dhow. Dhow trips to outlying islands are one of the must do activities of any visit to Lamu. One of the most incredible spectacles on the coast is the century old Maulid Festival and more recently the Lamu Cultural Festival which takes place annually.

For the full‚ white-sand experience you need to go to Shela Beach‚ Kipungani Island‚ where you are guaranteed a private stretch of beach.
