CRA-K 037: 3 Nights 4 Days Romantic Lamu Fly in Safari

Print

This safari takes you to the most affordable island in Kenya – Lamu archipelago. Whether it is for a family get-away or a honeymoon destination, this is an undisturbed island, peaceful and rich in the old Swahili culture. Lamu offers some of the most beautiful and unspoilt sandy beaches in Kenya. Shela Beach is one of the grandest to be found anywhere, fourteen kilometers of beach backed by sand dunes, still far away from mass tourism

The Lamu Archipelago is a group of islands located just off the North-Eastern coast of Kenya in the Indian Ocean. Lamu is Kenya's oldest and best preserved living town and has been classified a UNESCO World Heritage Site to protect its historical value, many buildings date back to the 18th Century or before. Characterized by its narrow streets, carved wooden doors, the call to prayer of mosques, men in full length robes and veiled women, the town has remained unchanged for centuries, there is still no motorized traffic and transport is still only by donkey or traditional sailing dhow.
