Lamu Island embraces a laid back and slower pace of life, located just off Kenya's coast. There are no cars or roads, the primary mode of transport being donkeys and old dhow boats. Its population boasts an enchanting cultural mix of African, Arab and Indian.
Visitors will be enchanted by the historical beauty of the island as they make their way through the winding streets of its medieval stone town. The town of Lamu began life as a 14th century Swahili settlement, but the island's many visitors, including Portuguese explorers, Turkish traders and the Omani Arabs, have left their mark in the architecture and traditions.
Rolling dunes and pristine beaches with endless horizons offer exceptional photographic opportunities, whilst vibrant villages dot the landscape amongst coconut and mango plantations and locals ply their fishing trade on traditional dhows.
