Most people that visit Kenya believe that Lamu was the highlight of their trip. It’s one of those places you have to experience for yourself because pictures do not do this place justice. Lamu reminds me so much of Zanzibar, only smaller and less touristy.This girls trip will last 5 days and 4 nights. We will go snorkeling in the Indian Ocean, take a full dhow tour to Manda Toto Island, spend time by the beach, watch the most epic sunrises and sunsets, have a picnic at the dunes, brunch at one of the most Instagrammable resorts in Lamu, immerse ourselves in Lamu’s rich history and of course enjoy Swahili food.
