Escape to sail the mangroves
For a magical day of dhow sailing, this trip is unrivalled. Set off aboard our own exclusive traditional Swahili dhow. Then take a leisurely sail down the coast and into the mangrove swamps. A unique realm, and a retreat of peace and silence that’s alive with birds, these groves still provide all the beams used in traditional Swahili homes. They’re also a source of fish, which are still caught by the traditional hand-line method. On the trip, you can sample some hand-line fishing of your own. What’s more, you fish will be taken back to the hotel where you can discuss with the chef how you’d like it to be presented for dinner. Worth noting that we’re ecologically sensitive so our boats do not anchor on the reef but, rather, drift with the tide.
