Your very private beach holiday resort… away from the “tourist track”
Safari is the Swahili word for travel. A safari in Kenya is a true life adventure! We may assist you to arrange exiting excursions in the nearby surroundings, and to further away destinations all over Kenya. We are not a travel agency, the trips will be organized by independent agents or agencies that we know and trust.
You can rent a fishing boat, or you can also rent one of the local sailing boats …an unforgettable experience.
In the waters you may spot the friendly giant whale shark (worlds largest fish, 18 meters, not dangerous / no teeth), large marlins, dolphins, sail fish, barracuda, dorado, tuna, king fish, bonito, and sea turtles.
If you travel to the the exiting Ramisi river you can spot crocodiles, rare monkeys and birds. A lunch may be served on an unspoilt sand island.
In Shimoni you can dive in the ocean reserve and spot abundance of reef fish. In the town itself a visit to the slave caves is recommended. There is also very nice snorkling trips to Wasini Islands, where the coral reefs are protected.
Shimba hills and the Elephant Sanctuary is a wonder with lush green jungle, exiting waterfalls and rare animals like the large Sable antelope. Herds of elephants and buffalos are normally easy to spot. Walking safaris can be arranged.
Mombasa with its arabic souks (old town) and bazaars is always an attraction together with the famous Portuguese fortress, fort Jesus..
