Do you see the beauty of Watamu? When it’s low tide you can simply walk to reach the tiny islands facing the coast, leaving directly from the shores and from your hotel. Low tide creates several ponds only a few feet deep, full of sealife, and you can enjoy it even when you’re not .. ergh .. ehm […]
A traditional open market in Watamu, on the side of the road. Everything is set up in the morning, and then unset in the evening. Whatever they sell, colours are always part of the setting.
The Mida Creek boardwalk is a rope bridge over the mangroves, leading to a wooden shelter to observe the birdlife of the creek. Not really “troubled water”, thou, but still a great song ? 🙂
A short break between lessons is always a good moment to play with friends, at Kanani Primary School, Watamu.
A quiet sunset on the Mida Creek, fishermen have all returned home, it’s dinner time for Watamu.

Emmanuel has been with us at the Lonno Lodge since the beginning. His red colored shuka is a familiar sight, from the main gate at the entrance when welcoming new guests to the nightly patrolling around checking that everything is in proper order. A trusted source of traditions and security.
The main gate of the Arabuko Sokoke Forest is only 20 minutes drive away from the Lodge, making it one of the favorite short trips among our guests. A good 4WD vehicle is advisable, if it’s a Landrover it’s even better. Landy rules!
