Kenyan Coast - Watamu - small fishing village on the Indian Ocean, 284 pages
Available at Marijani Holiday Resort!
Author: Denise Kiehn
Where in the world lies Watamu? There is not much to choose between the different information about the small, Kenyan fishing village on the Indian Ocean.
If one looks for further travel information about the place they usually find a few tips from the glossy brochures about the larger hotels in the surrounding area, or information about the diving-centres and the nearby Arabuko-Sokoke Forest.
What about additional leisure activities; the local conditions and what kinds of people live there? This guidebook, which is a little different to typical guidebooks, describes the village and its inhabitants, the environment and how holidaymakers can spend their time. It includes background information and tells about the sunny - and shady-sides of the idyllic vacation resort, its ancient history and the present day. The book includes many photographs of the surrounding area and should help Watamu newcomers to find their way around the village and to grasp the basics about the village inhabitants. It also contains some interesting background information for Watamu regulars.
