Exploring East Africa’s Coast
Spanning the length of Kenya and Tanzania is the coastal region of the Indian Ocean with its turquoise sea meeting golden sand. Relaxing under the palm trees as they sway in the tradewinds offers the perfect counterpart to your inland safari and is an appealing destination in its own right.
At East Africa Safari Ventures, we relish creating experiences that avoid the better-known tourist destinations, creating a beach vacation with a difference. We would instead send you to a superbly idyllic backwater like entrancing Lamu, a UNESCO World Heritage Site steeped in Arabic heritage, for an authentic encounter with East Africa’s Swahili culture and history on the ancient in Stone Town on the island of Zanzibar.
Stretching the entire length of Africa, the Indian Ocean’s timeless coastline with its mosques and forts, wild beaches and glittering seas, is a place to find peace and refreshment. You choose the rhythm and flow of your coastal explorations – you can be as active or as relaxed as you wish. There is no shortage of things to do in this tropical paradise. Laze on the beach in locations like Malindi and Watamu. Take a sundowner sail on a traditional wooden dhow, catch the afternoon wind and try your hand at kite surfing, explore ancient Arab ruins, go deep-sea fishing for marlin, or tie in a conservation focus and witness a turtle hatch. One thing is certain: an idyll on the East African coast will feed your soul.
