Kenya Boats Dhow Trips

Kenya Boats offers a fantastic creek trip on a lovely refurbished Dhow. At Kenya Boats you can have a lovely trip for you and your friends along the beautiful Mtwapa Creek.

Mtwapa Creek is situated 18 Kilometres North of Mombasa on the main Mombasa Malindi Road. The Creek is unspoilt with some beautiful views as you travel in land and then a lovely view of the ocean.

We take you on a trip exploring this wonderful area in this old wooden Dhow you travel along the Creek at a lovely slow pace in Kaza a lovingly restored wooden Dhow . Kaza has been used along the coast of Kenya for many years starting life in Lamu and coming to us as a bit of a wreck. We have fully restored her to a working capacity but use her now for lovely relaxing trips along Mtwapa Creek.


Bird Watching

If you like to watch birds then this is the place for you, there are several mating pairs of the great African Fish Eagle, the national bird

of Botswana. You will also see many different hawks gliding on the thermals along the creek. There are also many other types of stalk and crane the woolly necked crane is a frequent visitor. There are many different species along this creek as it is full of fish as it is a very important breeding ground for pelagic fish with the lovely mangroves offering perfect protection for the fry to grow. This means we get a lot of smaller fish eating birds like the Pied Kingfisher and the Red Necked Kingfisher if you are lucky.
