Info about Lamu

Overview

Lamu is the largest town on Lamu Island, an archipelago in Kenya. Founded in the 14th century, it is home to approximately 12,000 people.

Lamu enjoys a tropical climate. The summer, July-Sept, is warm at 35C, but the constant ocean breeze makes it pleasant. The winter months of November-March are just slightly cooler at 30C.
Once a thriving port city, Lamu was a centre for trade, timber, ivory, amber, spices and slaves. Today the local population, the Swahili people, engage in tourism, fishing and farming.
