With a different culture and architecture than those found in Swahili settlements centuries ago, some beautiful beaches and elsewhere on the Kenyan coast, Lamb is fascinating. Whether you’re wandering into the fragrant maze of the small streets of Lambtown and spending hours looking at the carved Omani and Swahili doors, the quiet beachside where you can enjoy yoga, art and fusion food at Shera Village. Even if you’re looking for a vacation, there’s something in Ram. Provided to most travellers.

Peaceful, tropical, bohemian-and still largely unaffected by mass tourism. Lamb is a unique place. Some of the best things to do in Lamb include long beach walks, dhow sailing, and exploring old Swahili settlements with unique coral townhouses. What's here? From the ruins of overgrown ancient fortresses to medieval villages, you can see how trade between Africa, the Middle East and Europe created this place. In addition to the charm of the island, it also has its natural beauty. Coral atolls, mangrove forests, remote archipelagos, and remote lagoons. But what we found most breathtaking was the white sands-and that's the spot on our list of the best things to do in Lamb.

1. Walk along a lonely beach 

The best location for a beach walk is a few kilometres south of Lambtown, on the eastern tip of the island, in the sea-facing waterways around Shera Village. Not far from Shera's dunes and secluded beaches, just a mix of clean waterfront promenades and narrow sandy trails. 

 

2. Discover the narrow streets of Lamb City 

Lamb City is Kenya's oldest inhabited Swahili city, dating back to the 12th century and comparable only to Unguja in Tanzania. With ancient fortresses, carved wooden doors, bustling markets and donkeys everywhere, this town is fascinating and authentic. It is no wonder that UNESCO has registered it as a World Heritage Site. 

 

3. Sail the traditional DHA 

Dhows and donkeys are the only means of transportation around Lamb (there are only two cars across the island, one belongs to the governor for official events and the other is a donkey. which is an ambulance). It is imperative to rent a dhow for a leisurely cruise around the archipelago. We sailed on a beautiful boat with the crew of the Red Pepper House. 

 

4. Rent a beautiful Swahili townhouse 

Shera Village is popular with foreigners in the west and even celebrities who come here to relax and live. Most townhouses are owned by Westerners. They turn them into guesthouses: beautifully restored, full of personality and credibility-they make Lamb unique in many ways. The Jaha House, where we were lucky to stay, is especially impressive. 

 

5. Get lost in the village of Shera 

There is no doubt that you will need to navigate the sandy maze of this small settlement path while in Shera. It's a tangle of wide streets with winding butt between a tall stone townhouse, a small thatched hut, some mosques and ruins, and a spacious square surrounded by some stalls. am. 

 

6. Manda island sunset 

Crossing the strait from Shera, the almost inhabited island of Manda is the perfect spot to see the beautiful African sunset behind Lamu. Overlooking the village and fort of Shera, the large, empty and pristine beach, framed by the palm trees of Rasquitau, is a jewel of the Lamb region. In addition, for example, you can enjoy Sundowner in the lovely environment of The Majlis where we stayed. 

 

7. Visiting Takuwa's Controlled City 

Manda Island was once one of the largest settlements on the Kenyan coast, but this once prosperous community left the city in the 17th century. The cause has been debated, but the most likely reason was the depletion of fresh water on the island. Today, the coral stone ruins are a popular day trip destination from Lamb and Shera. 

 

8. feest on the Swahili food 

International trade with Oman, Zanzibar, India, etc. brought goods and influenced the architectural style, but also changed Lamb's cuisine. It has created a unique and sophisticated blend of Africa and the east, with subtle nuances over the rigorous nomadic diet of mainland Africa. A rich and refined palette of biryanis and curry, couscous and pasta, coconut rice with mango chutney, and most of all seafood: cinnamon, cloves, cumin and fresh coconut milk. 

 

9. See Vegetable Markets 

The narrow streets of the town of Lamb haven't changed for hundreds-life is moving at the same pace as ever in its markets and squares. Lamb's Muslim population continues to live their ancestors, but there is one important difference: today, the island's economy revolves around tourism. However, traditional markets are still primarily targeted at locals. These are the most authentic places on the island. 

 

10. Above all: “pole pole” 

This expression – the Swahili word for “slowly” – pervades every aspect of Lamb's life. You cook Paul, sail Paul, and embrace the rhythm of a relaxed life, Paul Paul's life. Time will be slower here. It's like travelling back in time to the heyday of Lamb, a thriving medieval port city.

 

11. Lamu Museum 

Located on the waterfront next to the town’s pier, it is the second tallest building in Lamu’s Old Town after Fort Lam. The building was originally owned by Abdullah bin Hamed bin Siad Albuside and was completed in 1892. Lamb Museum. (Magic Kenya) Here you will get a complete introduction to the region, both past and present. There is a fascinating collection of Swahili, Pocomo, Olma, Boni and other backcountry tribes.

 

12. Pate Island 

Cannon satisfy fort interisland. (Majoris Resort) According to Putty’s chronicles, the city was founded by Arab immigrants in the early Islamic period. In the 13th century, a group of Arab rulers exiled from Oman (Nabhani dynasty) arrived on Pate Island.
