The town of Lamu itself is a UNESCO world heritage site steeped in living history. Tusitiri guests can explore the old town and village for shopping and sightseeing, or visit the ancient ruins that reveal some of the area’s rich history to fascinated newcomers.
Onboard, Tusitiri offers its guests a memorable combination of African tradition and Western luxury. Think white linen bedrolls and sumptuous cushioned seating on a traditional wide wooden deck, a warm-water open-air shower, and a large dining area and al-fresco kitchen at the bow. There is even Wi-Fi available on the otherwise timeless vessel!
Another onboard highlight is the world-class seafood offering. The Tusitiri chefs prepare fresh Swahili-inspired meals in an open-air galley, serving delicacies like freshly caught mangrove crab and prawns from local fishermen. This is accompanied by fresh local produce and carefully selected house wines.
The Tusitiri crew comprises highly skilled Bajuni sailors whose expertise have been learned over generations, as well as second-generation Kenyan wildlife enthusiasts who act as gracious hosts and a wealth of information on the area.
The highly exclusive experience is limited to only 10 guests at a time, so we’d encourage you and your friends or family to get together and book your unique private dhow safari now!
