Kenya Coast by Air, Flying Safari to Lamu
Lamu Island Air Safari and Mombasa Island Holiday
Nairobi – Lamu – Nairobi 3 Days
This island which is sometimes known as the "Katmandu" of Africa lies north of Mombasa on the eastern shores of Kenya. A thousand years of trade, settlement and Islamic expansion have left ruins up and down the East African coast. In the 2nd century, the Greeks knew of this coast and called it Azania. Later, in the 9th and 10th centuries Arab and Persian traders and settlers called it Bilad-al-Zenj. Their small settlements grew into fiercely independent city-states which brought forth a distinct Arab-African culture called Swahili. The buildings in Lamu's historical core date from the 18th century, though both folklore and archaeological evidence point to an older settlement just south and possibly also north of today's town. In December 2001 Lamu Town became a world heritage site in order to protect the oldest inhabited settlement south of the Sahara. Lamu has resulted from a combination of trade and Islam, modified by the environment.
