Below you will find our travel specialists top picks for the next coming months. These are simply our recommendations and we are able to tailor-make a safari for you based on the month you plan to visit East Africa.

November

Lamu Cultural festival from 22 to 24 Nov. One of the earliest Arab settlements along the Kenyan coast, Lamu has preserved his architecture and a tempo reminiscent of the 18th Century. This swahili town, the last remaining bastion of the Shirazi, the oldest of the cultures on this coast, is a delightful anachronism carrying on its daily life as it has for centuries. Most tourists stay in the nearby town of Shela and visit Lamu town for day excursions.
