Enjoy the adventure of a by-gone era, sailing the Lamu coastline on Elsabellah, a traditional 36ft Swahili dhow. Spend your days snorkelling, relaxing or fishing while the experienced 3 man crew guide you to stunning beaches. Anchor at dusk & sleep on the deck, gazing at the stars as you drift to sleep. Meals are cooked in the small kitchen by you or a crew member who specialises in coastal cuisine and is equipped with a gas cooker & BBQ. A fresh water shower & dhow toilet are also available.
