Kisite Marine Park
This was one of the highlights of my recent trip to the Kenyan coast.
You can access KWS-managed Kisite Marine Park via Shimoni which is about 80km south of Mombasa. Dolphin Dhow organise private visits to the park that include breakfast and sea food lunch on the dhow.
I’d always heard stories about dolphins being spotted in the Kenyan Indian Ocean waters and finally got to see it for myself. I saw just one coz I guess it was a Monday and all the rest were taking a break after a busy weekend entertaining tourists but it was worth it. Flipper swam alongside our dhow for quite a distance and then retreated – I guess to join his relaxing buddies. I then proceeded to snorkel in the Kisite corals and saw God’s handiwork in full technicolor display.
The God of all creation has indeed blessed our land and nation.
