Celebrating the Lamu Cultural Festival

Located right on the coast of Kenya is the island of Lamu, a pretty island that is home to one of the most ancient, perfectly preserved Swahili settlements in the entire East African region.

700 years old, Lamu Old Town is the product of a history marked by international trade, and throughout the centuries Swahili, Arab, Indian, Persian and European traders have all visited the city, putting their particular cultural and architectural style on the winding avenues and clustered districts that make up the town.
