Explore the Beauty of Lamu

Lamu is as laid-back as they come. This delightful coastal town on the fringe of Kenya is incredibly peaceful and slow-paced, all of which adds to the unique charm of this town. The landscape is punctuated by traditional mosques and coiling streets, where you’ll find friendly people and a throwback to classic Kenya. Revel in the quaintness of this town – it’s exactly what makes it so appealing as a holiday destination. From the authentic Swahili food and coastal bars, to the many opportunities to sail around the coast and explore the beaches, Lamu provides a great chance to see a different side to Kenya.

Why visit Lamu?
