Harpers and Queens travel round up includes Tusitiri Dhow in Lamu, Kenya as their ‘exotic charm’ category.

A traditional Dhow whose main stop point is on Lamu Island off the Kenya coast in the Indian Ocean, Tusitiri is a fine example of luxury tying in with a trip spent entirely on board the ocean current. Slowly bobbing up and down with brass lanterns, Persian rugs and Zanzibari chests from the days of the spice trade, a night aboard the dhow is said by the article to be ‘a magical experience.’

If you’re interested in a luxury ocean safari holiday to Lamu with a stay on board Tusitiri Dhow, please get in touch with one of our destination specialists who would be happy to help.
