Lamu town is the most perfect example of a historical Swahili city in the world. A warren of rounded houses, airy courtyards shaded by palm streets, cafes serving steaming chapattis and cups of milky tea.
Lamu is also inhabited by women in rustling black full-length robes and men riding donkeys, all overlaid with an omnipresent smell of spice. Lamu is hard not to fall in love with because of its unrivaled designs and natural decorations make it top considered than the rest.
The Kenya coast archipelago is best accessed by spice boat. There is possibly no more romantic way to move from one destination to the next than this.

The Colobus trust resembles a jungle playground, overhanging with vines and ropes, all a set piece and sanctuary for the adorable Angolan Black-and-White Colobus monkey.
Further south of Diani, Kaya Kinondo is the protected kaya or sacred forest, of the local Digo Mijikenda tribe. The forest once housed the Digo, and has been maintained in a virgin state as a centre of their religious and communal ceremonies.
