Dhow Safari

Lamu Island - Indian Ocean, Northern Kenya

Constructed of specific local hardwoods, dhows date back to the Afro-Arab civilization before the time of Christ, and are traditionally used for trading exotic commodities between the Arabian Gulf, India and the East African coast. Since her launch, Tusitiri has ventured south to Mozambique and as far East as India. Her spacious decks and gracious furnishings allow up to 12 guests to relax, enjoy a variety of water-sports, and enjoy the beautiful surroundings of this little visited area. During time on board, guests sail through the Lamu archipelago, exploring the calm inland waters, with time to explore deserted beaches and island hideaways. When conditions allow, Tusitiri raises her majestic sails in time-honored tradition, at other times, conditions may require the use of the main engine. Booked on an exclusive basis, Tusitiri is the perfect getaway for friends seeking fun and adventure, families wishing to spend time together, or couples looking for the ultimate retreat.
