Latest News from Lamu
Lamu Island is a peaceful sanctuary. It only takes 4 hours to walk the whole way round it and has a tiny population. So, honestly, there's not many newsworthy stories to tell you about. But when something does happen, we like to share it! Particularly when it's good news...
It's such great news that the turtle population in the Lamu archipelago has, thanks to the efforts of the Lamu Marine Conservation Trust, risen by 50% in recent times. Find out more about their work and the island community by watching this great video.
Diving from Lamu is best from November to March. There is only one specialist dive operator in Lamu who we can put you in touch with either before you arrive or during your stay. It's run by a very friendly Englishman and the diving is from a traditional dhow at sites around one and a half hours sailing time from the island.
