A typical example of a traditional Swahili house at the south coast of Kenya. Building materials consisting of mangrove rafters, makuti roofing and walls made out of old coral stones. Beautiful light on a clear warm morning.

The sun has just kissed the horizon and the local fishermen are heading out while the tide is up.
Hiding between the roots of the mangroves is the swamp crocodile. Little have changed for this predator since prehistoric times and it is still successful in hunting down prey that are unaware of this floating tree trunk.
A very poor fisherman in a small Falucca, the sail stitched together of black plastic bags and the boat itself also looks like it’s been stitched together of discarded timber. These tiny boats venture out beyond the reef although they are not seaworthy.

Behind Wasini island you will find the well preserved Kisite reef, well worth a visit should you pass by Shimoni town on the south coast of Kenya.
Diving at the reef around Funzi island. The sun and waves are making chaotic light streaks in the swallow waters.
Optimal living conditions for Egrets are in the waters between the mangrove roots that sticks out of the water. Those swampy waters are normally brimming with small critters and fish. Ideal hunting grounds.

Diving on the beautiful marine park outside of the costal town of Shimoni
Small ghost crab only a few inches away from it's home in the intertidal zone on the beach. These crabs are scavengers cleaning up all eatable items on the beach. The pale colors and patterns are perfectly matching the beach sand making it harder for birds to snatch them.
Early morning and a small canoe vessel made of the trunk of a Mango tree is heading out to catch Kingfish outside off the reef
Beautiful sunny diving at the pristine Kisite reef with a scenic view of smaller coral rag forest islands.
