Immerse yourself right into the Kenyan culture and beautiful nature with this village experience by the famous Mida Creek. This private experience is perfect for a small group of friends or a family!
A lovely family welcomes you to their community camp, a masterpiece that has come to life – treehouses, swings, and tent platforms built by their own hands. Have the opportunity to head out to the creek, on a wooden canoe or boat, visit islands, learn about the mangroves, swim in the water, and feel the essence of being in the middle of breathtaking nature.
Once back on land, have the opportunity to take a boardwalk through the mangroves, exchanging knowledge with locals. Head back to camp, where we’ll light a campfire and stargaze while sharing stories.
The next day, you are able to visit the village, getting involved with a range of local activities, ranging from climbing coconut trees, building makuti roofs, and cooking classes. Before the day ends, take a boat out on the creek, to experience the sunset over the lined palms while spotting over 50 bird species.
Wake up to a morning swim in the calm waters, sipping coconuts while you take it easy and take time to digest the spectacular last few days!
As this trip is short, it can be a perfect sustainable excursion to add on to your plans if you’re already self-organizing a longer trip to Kenya or Eastern Africa.
The Kenyan coastal region experiences two distinct seasons: a dry season and a rainy season. This trip is best in the dry season.
The dry season runs from December to March and from July to October. During this time, the weather is sunny, warm, and dry, making it the ideal time for beach activities, cultural tours, and wildlife safaris. With clear skies and calm waters, the dry season is perfect for snorkeling, dhow cruises, and other water activities. For this trip, we suggest the shoulder season (November through February) as the most sustainable time to travel because it promotes tourism dispersal – spreading out tourist arrivals so destinations do not get overwhelmed and resource-constrained. However, since this excursion is off the beaten path and won’t have many tourists, traveling during the high season (June through October) would also be fine.
In the wet season, and especially during the months of May and June, some roads may become impassable and certain areas inaccessible due to flooding.
It’s important to note that temperatures along the coast are consistently warm throughout the year, with average temperatures ranging from 25°C to 30°C (77°F to 86°F).
