Hippo Dhow is a Mozambique Dhow located in the village of Shela in Lamu, Kenya. Hippo is available for hire for sailing, snorkeling, and sunset cruising. We can accommodate up to 15 people and specialize in the following:
Sunset Cruise – depart Shela for a 1.5 hour sail along the coast of Manda and through the mangroves.
Manda Toto Tour – depart Shela for a half day of sailing to the coral reefs located at Manda Toto. Swim among the colorful fish and then enjoy a fresh seafood lunch aboard the boat. After lunch, explore the deserted beaches of Manda before heading back to Shela.
Matandoni and Kipungani Tour – Depart Shela in the morning and sail to the village of Matandoni. Walk through the village and witness how local dhows are made and participate in basket weaving. From there, we continue our sail to Kipungani to swim, relax on the beach, and enjoy lunch.
Takwa Ruins Tour – depart Shela in the morning and sail through the mangroves to the ancient ruins of Takwa. A local guide will walk you through the ruins and tell you the history of this mystical place. Return to Shela before low tide…when marine life comes to land. Hippo Dhow is also available for custom sailing itineraries, trips to Kiwayu and Pate Islands, weddings, and private events.
