Lamu Island was unvisited until lately, and since then made the news when it was revealed as Bill Gates’
favourite holiday location, and when Prince William proposed to Kate Middleton not too far from the
Island. Most importantly, Barrack Obama’s father was born in Kisumu, a village close to the island.
Lamu in tropical Kenya makes for a blissful beach escape within Africa. The cobalt waters lap against the
dramatic rolling white sand that hems the island. The island is very un-commercial as it has no cars, but
that is what makes it different from other holiday destinations.
Accommodation varies from small beach cottages to large all-inclusive Resorts. Some hotels cater
specially for families with Kids Clubs and organised activities. Water sports are the most popular
activities in the area, with snorkelling, scuba diving, wind surfing and fishing amongst the most popular.
If you are looking for an escape from cold Britain to somewhere warm, this could be the place for you.
