Getting There in LamuEdit This
Flying is definitely your best bet to get to Lamu. You can fly from Nairobi, Mombasa, or Malindi. Flights from Malindi are not too expensive, and it will be worth it.
It is possible to take a dhow from Malindi, but I would not recommend it. The trip can be longer than 12 hours, and thereÕs a chance that you may not reach your destination at all, and youÕll have to find another way to make the remainder of the trip.
If the dirt road from Malindi is in passable condition, itÕs possible to drive to Lamu. Again, this is not recommended because of the frequency of bandit attacks north of Malindi.
