Mji wa Waswahili

Lamu Island is a port, city, and island just off the shore of Kenya in the Indian Ocean approximately 150 miles from Mombasa. It is a part of the East African country of Kenya. Lamu was founded in the 12th Century. Lamu is one of the longest established, and best preserved remaining settlements of the Swahili tradition in east Africa that remains today. The Swahili culture has a rich history and embraces all parts of the society on the island of Lamu.

Lamu Old Town

Lamu Old Town, the principal inhabited part of the island, is one of the oldest and best-preserved  Swahili settlements in East Africa.. This city has had civilians living in it for over seven hundred years, while most of the other East African settlements along the coast do not have inhabitants

Shela

Shela is a village about 3.2 km (2.0 mi) south of Lamu (town). The origin of the village is unknown, but according to tradition, it was settled by people from nearby  Manda Island. In 1813, the elite of  Pate Island, allied with the  Mazrui clan from  Oman, attempted to subjugate Lamu in the  Battle of Shela.

Matondoni

Known for the building and repairing of  dhows, Matondoni lies at the NW coast of the island, 7.3 km (4.5 mi) west of Lamu (town). The locals of this village are best known for building dhows. With the increasing use of speedboats, the production of dhows is starting to decrease

Kipungani

This is a small village on the southwestern coast of the island. With the white sand beaches, this village is a popular tourist attraction. While staying in the village of Kipungani, tourists are given the options to engage in activities such as snorkeling, deep sea & game fishing.
