The beauty of the mangroves in Mida Creek

Boat trips and walks in unique landscapes

13-06-2020 di redazione

Among the thousands of possibilities to enjoy Nature that Kenya, and particularly its coast, can boast, there is certainly the sea landscape dominated by mangroves.
These plants, which have their roots in soils which feed on water from the Indian Ocean, form really particular landscapes.
It is a microcosm which, from the enchanted paths of a canal, of an inlet, of a lagoon, assumes its own physiology which transports the African equator in a more eastern dimension, lacustrine, of different magic. The mangrove landscape is absolutely worth visiting. Its plants, the interweaving of roots and tree formations, the birds that frequent the humid microclimate, the particularity of crabs and fish, make mangroves unique, not only for enthusiasts. From Malindi it is possible to visit the mangroves in the inlet of Midas, at the bottom of Watamu. With a dhow, or the fishermen's boats, rented at Watamu Marine Park, you can enter this unspoilt natural paradise. In the hundred sea meanders of Midas you will discover a world (in Midas you can also visit the elementary school on the mangrove island). Another nice excursion is on foot from Eco Camp, with entrance from the Malindi-Mombasa road, at the Mida Secondary School. You can also book your African lunch at Eco Camp. Through a series of routes, piers and passages, you enter a very special world. Just as in Watamu, after the Pili Pan lagoon, you can easily enjoy a walk and discover passages, lanes and paths in the middle of the lagoon void of marine plants. Another piece of Africa that we at watamukenya.net like a lot.
