Air Lamu offers both private charter flights along the Kenyan coast, as well as scenic flights in the area; unforgettable experiences for those that want more out of life than just a lie in! We recommend taking off at first light, flying low over the coral reefs north of Manda Island for a glimpse of a school of Black tip reef sharks, and onwards over the reefs of Manda Island with the sun rising over the Indian Ocean. Takwa Ruins are brought to life from the air – these 9th Century ruins were once a thriving settlement. Heading southwards, you will be flown over Lamu town and along the shores of Lamu Island to the mainland where wildlife abounds amongst palm forests and coastal riverine forest. The plentiful waterholes are popular amongst Buffalo and Hippo, and the grasslands have Waterbuck, Topi, Zebra, Warthog, Giraffe, Hartebeest and a variety of birdlife. In addition to the game, there are small villages of the Orma people, a nomadic tribe who live out the seasons with their cattle. Back in time for breakfast, it will be the most enjoyable hour of your life!
Instead of planning your holiday around scheduled flights, you should be concentrating on why you are here – to be on holiday! Sit back and relax while you are flown where you want, when you want!
