Discover the Hidden Gems of Diani-Tiwi Beach, Kenya
Tiwi Beach is the Northern section of Diani Beach which is rarely explored due to the Dividing River Kongo. Not the Congo river of DRC but a smaller similarly named river in the Kenyan coast. Being a local, born and raised in this area, I have grown knowing and appreciating all its hidden gems. I will be offering a visit to two of these hidden natural gems with a tour of a naturally formed pool shaped as the African Continent which only appears during low tide. having grown in this area, I have mastered the tides timetable making it an experience that only locals can provide. the pool also sits on the entrance to a small cave with an overhead opening which is simply magical. After a swim in the natural pool, and a lit photo session, I will then offer a boat ride upstream which will include sightings of local birds, mangrove and neighboring villages. Fun fact: locals in my area do not set up security fences, it is believed that denying passers by right of way bring bad luck. The boat ride is timed at sunset which reflects a pale tint of orange on the rivers surface making it a whole magical experience in itself. the green vegetation of mangrove, baobab and coconut trees blurs in the sunset's light at the horizon making it a real life masterpiece.
