Full description
Embark on a full-day tour to Wasini and marvel at the beauty of the Kisite Mpunguti Marine Park with all its species diversity, high coral quality, and reef build-up. Meet your driver at the lobby of your hotel at 7 AM, and then head to Southern Kenya and admire the coconut palms and cashew nut farms along the way.

Your guide will tell you about why the warm waters are vital for the coral formations, dolphins, turtles and a variety of sea life. Aboard an Arabian-style dhow to Kisite Mpunguti Marine Park, spot dolphins who often swim beside the boat and stop at a reef for a snorkel. Savor delicious seafood at the Wasini island restaurant and taste the local Swahili cuisine.

After lunch, sail along the mangrove swamps, and then visit the Wasini Island, where you'll learn about the slave trade from the 10th to the 17th centuries. After the end of the slave trade, many Africans settled on this island. Take a historical tour around Wasini Island and the Shimoni Slave Caves, where enslaved people were kept before being shipped to Arabia before returning to your hotel around 4 PM to end your day trip.
