Duration: 2 hours
After a walk trough the mangroove on the unique tibetan bridge we'll cross the mudflats left by the lowering tide, with thousands of little crabs scrambling away from our steps, then we'll finally reach the water and board a traditional dugout canoe. We'll ride as local fishermen do and, with luck on our side, we'll have the chance to enjoy the vibrant bird life of the area with 65 different species populating the generous waters of the creek. After that we'll go deep in the mangrove forest and see the incredible amphibious fishes we call frogfish or mudskipper and the oysters that grow on the roots of these incredible trees. Now is the moment: the sky turns to beautiful shades of pastel colors while the sun shines on every ripple of the water surface, let's wait till it falls behind the Green Island... and let's go back to the Giriama village where you can refresh yourself with a coconut just picked from the palm or a glass of palm wine.Pickup is offered at an additional sum.
