Lamu Island holidays

Lamu Island is enchanting. As Kenya’s oldest living town it has retained all the charm and character built up over centuries. There are no cars so donkeys are the main means of transport. Children play in the narrow streets, Muslim men chat on street corners and women in their black buibui eils busy themselves through doorways. Most houses have a rooftop which is used as a patio. There are two banks, a post office and a book shop, the Lamu Book Centre, which sells local newspapers and international news magazines.
