Luma or Zanzibar ?

My partner and I have some time up our sleeves after a tour of Masai Mara before flying to Mozambique in September. I was wondering whether we should head to Zanzibar (stone town) or Lamu on the coast of Kenya. I have been to Zanzibar before but my partner hasn't.

We are looking for somewhere historical and pretty.

Greetings

My opinion would be to go to Lamu from Maasai Mara. You will save on time, cash and besides both of you will get the opportunity to enjoy Lamu for the first time. Lamu is a beautiful historical town and i have always had a great time every time i visited. Zanzibar is great too but in this case, Lamu seems a better option. Either way have a great time:)

Lamu would be the best option if you shall be in Masai Mara because you can fly direct using either Airkenya or Safarilink.

Lamu is the place to go! Has rich culture and also supper clean beaches! Now that you will be in Kenya you dont need another visa to go to Lamu.

So my quick response will be go to Lamu!
