Tour Details

What? A really really special space, where the river meets the sea in the most calming way. The river goes through a mangrove forest and passes by a Digo village.

When? Sunset, the colours are breathtaking. Although, you can easily spend a few days in this area exploring. 

Why? Sail through the waters, meet the villagers and watch the sun set over the mangrove creeks. You can choose to also go for a swim in the river or clear seas – or both if the tide is right! Learn about the unique ecosystem and birdlife from the locals themselves.

How? Swimming costumes would be helpful if you want a dip, apart from that sit back and enjoy the ultimate ride.

Lots of birds and nature, a piece of heaven. Well organised tour that let us see a different part of Diani. Just we had to walk quite a bit to get to the canoe, but that’s because it was low tide, not T4P’s fault!
