NAHMCT 002, An Excursion at Gedi Ruins and Kipepeo Butterfly Project Tour


An Excursion at Gedi Ruins and Kipepeo Butterfly Project Tour

Trip Highlights: This is a full day excursion from your hotel or beach resort starting after breakfast and ending in the afternoon with a lunch break back to your hotel.

Gedi Ruins Tour

Gedi Ruins is a 12th Century Swahili village that was mysteriously abandoned some 600 years ago due to unknown causes. It is now a National Museum, and the ruins are heavily overgrown with beautiful indigenous forest trees, baobabs and tamarind. Well worth a walk and a visit. Look out for Syke's Monkeys, and the Golden Rumped Elephant Shrew can also be seen here. A quiet, careful look in some of the old wells can turn out the odd owl, too.

Kipepeo Butterfly Project Tour

Right at the entrance to Gedi Ruins is the Kipepeo Butterfly Project. This innovative project is aimed at giving the forest edge communities opportunities to get an income directly from the forest, by live breeding the unique butterflies of the Arabuko-Sokoke forest, and sending them to live butterfly display centers around the world.

The project has led to a large increase in household incomes in those households participating in the project, and since butterflies are short lived and hard to breed abroad, the market is quite reliable. Recommended to clients staying in Malindi and Mambrui, full day excursion. Lunch will be at your hotel or resort on Watamu beach.
