The Blu Safari

Blue Safari

When you talk about Africa, one of the things that came to mind at first are its colours.
For the daily episode of our virtual blog, we want to bring you some Blu…

The Blu Safari is an all-day-long excursion in a glass-bottomed boat and consists of a boat trip to admire the depths of the coral reef and spot dolphins in the open sea.
At 13 there will be a stop on the small island formed by a game of tides where you can have delicious grilled fish with barbecue in the water.

The Malindi and Watamu National Marine Reserve is the oldest marine reserve in Africa established in 1979 to protect 213 square kilometres of coast, coral reefs and open sea, from Mida Creek to Malindi.
The protected area also includes the small National Marine Park of Malindi and the National Marine Park of Watamu, which are among the areas of Kenya most suitable for snorkelling and diving, thanks to over 300 registered species of reef fish and a rich variety of reproduction of the embricata and green turtles, besides having been sighted also liutu tortoises and turtle bastard olive-trees.
The reserve of Malindi or Watamu is the point of departure to start the boat trip.

The stop for snorkelling is right before reaching the Sardegna 2 Atoll and the Island of Love visible only in case of low tide. The peculiarity is that you really see the formation of the island. Here, you can sunbathe lying on the very white coral sand, refreshing yourself with shallow and clear water.

Blu safari is for everyone: adults and children. Children will be enchanted by the infinite species among which there is the pufferfish. It’s funny behave will amaze you: it becomes puffier when going out of the water because when it is inside its natural environment it has a regular fish size.
You will never forget the colours of that day, of that sea, of that fishes.

For the day after Malaika Resort offers you many others excursions: experience Africa with us and don’t lose any of our suggestions!

We hope you enjoyed this step of our “virtual tour“!
