Snorkeling Trip to Manda Toto and Kiwayu**

The Lamu Archipelago offers some of the finest snorkeling on the Indian Ocean. Explore untouched coral reefs and discover an astounding array of exotic marine wildlife. The excursions are organized daily on our motor boats and include a picnic lunch on an isolated island. There are regular encounters with schools of dolphins and occasionally we manage to swim amongst these gentle creatures.

Jungle Gym and Cycling Trip

Our jungle gym offers all guests – young and old – a chance to stretch and tone their muscles in an absolutely serene environment. 

For the more active amongst you, we also offer cycling excursions around Manda Island and jogging on the Manda beaches.

** This excursion attracts an extra charge.

We are also delighted to offer baby sitting services (upon request at a fee per day). At pre-arranged times, our pools have attendants to watch over the children. However, please note that no qualified lifeguards are present at the swimming pools and floating and swimming aids are a must for children who do not swim. Life jackets are offered to all children during the excursions.

For water sports and excursions we will issue indemnity forms to all participating guests.
