Malindi city tour & Cheshale golden beach

A Ribbon of History on Golden Sands

The renowned explorer, Vasco de Gama left his mark here in 1498 on his search for a route to India. In Malindi, you can explore the town’s colorful winding streets and nearby, find ancient mosques, tombs, and a deserted king’s palace.

Also, of note on your tour, discover the charming Portuguese chapel built by de Gama. Known as St. Francis Xavier Chapel, it looks out on the seafront as it has for over 500 years.

There’s more magic to be seen just a short 20 km (12.4 mi) drive from town at the glistening sands of Cheshale Golden Beach. T

Watamu Marine Park & Sudi Island Excursion

Imagine a marine park offering brilliant lagoons fringed with bright coral reefs, drawing in hundreds of fish, manta rays, and sea turtles. This is the paradise of Watamu Marine National Park, one of Kenya’s finest aquatic habitats and a haven for divers, snorkelers and sea lovers. In this protected marine setting, you can also enjoy a series of diamond white sand beaches, said to be amongst the ten best in the world.

Malindi Marine National Parks

An explosion of undersea color – the fish and the coral here will compete for your attention with their dazzling hues. Africa’s first marine park is a treasure of fringing reefs, coral gardens, lagoons, seagrass, and every sort of sea life – turtles, dolphins, fish, and shorebirds.

Bio-Ken Snake Farm & Laboratory

The black spitting cobra. The horned viper. The puff adder. And the black mamba. These are just a few of the more than 200 snakes you’ll discover at the Bio-Ken Snake Farm, the largest collection of snakes in East Africa. Known throughout the world, Bio-Ken has captivated visitors for over 30 years with its extensive collection of Africa’s deadliest snakes. Here you’ll find the plain-looking but deadly twig snake for whose bite there is no cure.

Watamu Turtle Watch

Who doesn’t love the sight of glorious sea turtles swimming about, coming ashore to nest, their tiny hatchlings scurrying back out to sea to begin the cycle anew? This was a common site on Kenya’s coast but then human intrusion – poaching and accidents threatened the beloved turtles.

The local Watamu residents were alarmed at this loss and jumped to the rescue forming patrols of the turtles’ beach nests, ensuring they were left unbothered. It was a first step toward the turtles’ survival.
