Vad du kommer att göra

This listing is specific to an activity that me and my friend the Captain like the most. If you happen to be in the neighborhood and want to have some special time deep in nature, join us for a canoa ride around the creek. After a walk trough the mangroove on the unique swinging board we'll cross the mudflats left by the lowering tide, with thousands of little crabs scrambling away from our steps, then we'll finally reach the water and board a traditional dugout canoe. We'll ride as local fishermen do and, with luck on our side, we'll have the chance to enjoy the vibrant bird life of the area with flamingos, spoonbills, herons, egrets and storks populating the generous waters of the creek. After that we'll go deep in the mangrove forest and see the incredible amphibious fishes we call frogfish or mudskipper and the oysters that grow on the roots of these incredible trees.
Now is the time we were all waiting for: the sky turns to beautiful shades of pastel colors while the sun shines on every ripple of the water surface, let's wait till it falls behind the Green Island... now it's time to get back to the Giriama village where you can refresh yourself with a coconut just picked from the palm or a glass of palm wine.
We love to share what we love and we really love our creek, we're a small community and we do what we do with all our passion and love.

Hello everyone, I'm Harrison Hare Karisa, a Watamu native and member of the Mida Creek Community.
I'm the manager of the Mida Creek Nature Camp and a veteran tourist guide.
For many years I enjoyed bringing my guests around the Creek showing them the beautiful place where I live.
I like to create a real connection with the people who come visit and I love when they show interest and curiosity about the nature around us and our way of life, so please come visit and don't be afraid to ask questions! There's a bottle of palm wine waiting for you!

We'll go through the mangrove forest walking on the swinging boardwalk, across the mudflats left by the low tide, in the actual creek with a dugout canoe, deep in the mangrove forest again and then back in the Giriama village.

Amazing experience canoeing on the Mida Kreek. We very much enjoyed the stories by the captain, the fresh coconut on the boat and the beauty of the creek. Ask to be dropped off at the Crab Shack by canoe which results in a magical sundowner with delicious crab samosas. Thank you Harrison!

Really enjoyed our canoe down the creeks. Johnny was great fun, and we loved seeing the treehouses and other things they are building at the camp. Thanks!

The leader of the nature camp, Harrison, is a very positive, enthusiastic and entrepreneurial person. He showed us around in the camp, including three tree huts where guests can spend a night very close to nature. We also saw a group attending his Kenyan cooking experience. If you have other similar wishes, contact Harrison and maybe he can tailor some special experience for you. We had booked boardwalk and canoeing. We were assigned a guide. He was a very nice person, giving excellent service and information. Sadly I don't remember his name. The boardwalk was scary enough to make my wife excited, and maybe not suitable for every grandmother. We caught a glimpse of a mudskipper, a fish that spends much of its life out of water. The mudskipper is likely somewhat similar to our ancestors who migrated from the sea to land about 400 million years ago. We experienced the tide coming in. One moment we were standing on dry land, the next moment we were not. The canoe trip was super. We had an old traditional canoe made out of one piece of wood (plus some fiber glass reinforcement...). Our guide took us into the mangroves, showing us oysters, another mudskipper, fish, and several kinds of birds. We also went ashore on a cute island with sea aspargus and a nice sandy beach (Hint: Bring swimwear). And we saw sunset, likely quite similar to the way our ancestors may have seen the sunset from similar canoes thousands of years ago. This was a very nice trip, at a very reasonable price.

This tour should be an essential part of any visit to the coast. Mida Creek is a national treasure, one that the local community is actively trying to preserve, protect, and share. Recommend camping in one of Harrison’s rustic treehouses, walking the Boardwalk straight out of Indiana Jones, and walking soft sandy beaches after a Creek canoe ride. We will be going back soon.

We had the most optimal canoe and board walk tour led by Harrison and his friend Daniel - thank you! Their enthusiasm for the mangroves and their surroundings was infectious. We learned lots and felt utterly welcomed by the community. Plenty of nice little personal touches on top of an already spendid adventure in a magical place. Full-heartedly recommend!

Was such an amazing experience. Harrison and his team made sure I would enjoy the mangrove trip with canoe and be safe. Super friendly, learned lots of interesting facts. I highly recommend:)
