Its location, right on Shela Beach, is truly stunning! This exquisitely finished holiday
house commands superb views of the beach and of the arm of Indian Ocean that separates the
islands of Lamu and Manda, on the East coast of Kenya. It towers over the dhows and their
crews sliding out to the ocean or returning after a night of fishing in deep ocean.
You are on the beach!
Arrive at Wilson Airport check in for your afternoon 2 p.m. flight to Lamu
(check in 1 hour before departure).

This is a peaceful tropical island in Kenya where life is lived at its own relaxed rhythm‚
life slows down‚ This package sleeps 6‚ 3 doubles‚ one has a view over shela village and
the channel between Lamu and Manda island. Spent the day strolling along the water front‚
listen to music‚ play cards‚ have a sun downer or just gaze out at the night sky.
Dinner and Overnight.
Wake up lazily Lamu Island is a place where time has stood still‚ after a sumptuous Swahili
breakfast‚ enjoy the unparallel luxury to walk past gently shelving white sands or swim with
dolphins and turtles in the turquoise waters of the Indian Ocean. Easy beach life is a daily
need‚ together with water skiing or even surfing. Forget the world beyond; this is a perfect
place for daydreaming. A must is a sunset or a longer trip on a traditional Swahili dhow.
Dinner and overnight.
By boat‚ or on foot along the beach‚ visiting the old city of Lamu is an absolute must‚
you must do it during these holidays. You will be transported directly back into the 17th century.
No cars‚ and the alleyways‚ each one narrower than the last‚ form a labyrinth from which
the local children will easily show you the way out.
Renewed and rejuvenated your flight back to Nairobi is only in the late afternoon.
This idyllic island speaks to the heart and soul‚ and a trip to Lamu is a romantic
experience that can become a lifelong affair. On board Airkenya flight at 15.00 hrs
