We can take care about the first shopping, so the guests arriving in Shambani can find all they need (drinks, fruit, vegetables, fish etc) and the meal ready.

Beach: Shambani is connected to the beach by a nice pathway 290 meters long. On the amazing beach of Mwachema river and his forest of baobas and mangroves, the guests will have a relaxing beach time.
Here 'the beach boy' Salim Omari can organise boat excursions to the reef or along the river, across the mangroves forest.

Transport and safaris: We can arrange for the guests car hire and organise excursions and safaris.
We recommend the exiting excursion to Kisite Marine Park, with boat excursion, goggling and sea food lunch on Wasini Islands .
We also recommend the two day safari in Tsavo, sleeping at Tahri Camp, where is possible to see the wider range of wild animals.
