What To Expect
A full day excursion on a traditional sailing dhow, this trip begins at Fumba, the perfect starting point to explore Menai Bay, an official Conservation Area. Home to beautiful uninhabited islands, the area is stunning, frequented by humpback and bottlenose dolphins.
We will stop at Kwale sandbank where sunshades are set up and guests have the chance to go snorkeling in the coral reefs, helped by the guides. Afterward, you'll be offered refreshments to whet your appetite before heading to Kwale Island for lunch under the tamarind trees. Drinks are served throughout the day and lunch is a buffet of grilled fish, lobster, calamari, chicken and rice, with tropical fruits.
After lunch, you can sunbathe, snooze or visit the beautiful mangrove lagoon. Depending on the tide, you may be able to take a swim in the lagoon. For those who seek adventure, join the crew to sail in a "ngalawa," a local outrigger canoe.
