Embark on a safari-voyage in a traditional wooden sailing vessel that was originally built for transporting exotic spices and goods along the Indian Ocean trade routes. This magnificent ship has been beautifully restored allowing one to venture out to the exotic archipelago of islands surrounding beautiful Lamu, where ideal sailing conditions beckon. Lamu is a UNESCO World Heritage site offering an off-the-beaten-tourist-track experience. All voyages allow personal customization and include two on-board expert ocean and wildlife enthusiasts and a small crew of Bajuni sailors who have been expertly sailing these waters for generations; along with two skilled chefs that will prepare Swahili-inspired fresh meals in the open-air galley.  Savor freshly caught mangrove crab and prawns or whatever the local catch of the day might be.  Sail between the islands, snorkel the reefs, kayak quiet lagoons and mangrove creeks, deep sea fish, water-ski, wander on the pristine beaches, have picnics with stunning panoramic views, wander the narrow streets of Lamu’s old town, visit ancient ruins, encounter the warm culture of the local people and sleep under the stars on comfortable bedding laid out on the deck after dinner.  Step aboard this private magical sailing safari that exudes the historic essence of a living history and watch the picturesque landscapes as they drift by from each magnificent sunrise to sunset.
