Lake Kenyatta Day Game Drive Safari Lamu Island is a full day excursion to Lake Kenyatta – a fresh water lake located 2.5 km’s on the southwest of the town of Mpeketoni.
Our day tour begins with sailing from Lamu Island to the Mokowe Jetty on the mainland. We then boardour safari vehicle to Mpeketoni about 45 km’s southwest of Mokowe jetty on the coast.
Along the way from Lamu Island to Mpeketoni we see huge mango trees. Mpeketoni town is said to be on a route that was used by the Arab traders taking their commodities “slaves” to Lamu Island.
The mangoes are also said to have grown from the seeds of the mangoes slaves were eating. We arrive mid morning at the township of Mpeketoni and proceed to Lake Kenyatta located 2.5 km’s southwest of Mpeketoni.
Once at the Lake we proceed on a game drive along the fresh water lake and the wildlife areas.
Lake Kenyatta is home to baboons, monkeys, zebras, hippos, warthogs, buffalos, waterbucks, topis, hyenas, mongooses, pythons, dikdiks, impalas, hedgehogs and other seasonal game.
Also, a large number of wild birds are found here. These include mouse birds, flycatchers, bee-eaters, sunbirds, storks, egrets, herons, Vultures, weavers, Ibises and eagles.
We enjoy viewing hippos in the lake and also have an option of doing sport fishing with hooks. Later we have lunch at Mpeketoni town, followed by a mini-shopping tour and travel back to Lamu Island.
