The Lamu Archipelago is located in the Indian Ocean close to the northern coast of Kenya, to which it belongs.
Lamu is the perfect place for a beach safari with a difference, a truly unique destination. The island is a place of great natural beauty, with long deserted beaches framed by rolling sand dunes and the deep blue waters of the Indian Ocean. A popular Kenyan holiday & honeymoon destination.

Lamu Island, a UNESCO World Heritage Site is the perfect example of a tropical archipelago.
