The Camel Project

Camels were once the main transport on the island and now they are being introduced again as a tourist attraction and as a means of transport for the more remote villages on Lamu Island.

The Camel Project has four camels on the beach and four camels in Kipungani village.

On the beach they are a tourist attraction and in Kipungani they carry a cart to transport people and goods on a regular schedule from Kipungani to Lamu and back.
