Getting Here and Around in Lamu
Getting Here and Around
Flights land on Manda Island, and a speedboat takes about 10 minutes to get to Lamu (your hotel will pick you up). Lamu is a very easy town to get around because it's so small. The cobbled streets are laid out in a grid fashion with the main street—known simply as Main Street—running parallel to the harbor.
Kenya Airways has daily flights from Nairobi. AirKenya has frequent flights to Lamu and Kiwayu from Nairobi, Mombasa, and Malindi. It also offers hops from Lamu to Kiwayu. Fly540 flies here from Nairobi and Malindi.
