About 10 km south of Kilifi branches off from the coastal road B 8 a piste to the fishing village Takaungu, nestles on another narrow bay. In the center of the village rises the burial place of the last sultan of the Arabian Mazrui dynasty of Mombasa. He had been banished here in 1837 after his fall. The village, with its Swahili population, gives an idea of what Kenya's locations on the Indian Ocean might have looked like before tourism spread. Whitewashed houses line quiet streets, three simple mosques testify to the Islamic character of this settlement. In Takaungu Bay, the tides are particularly noticeable. Within a short time the bay is without water and then the water comes back and you have to cross the water with an old boat. Worth a visit is certainly also a visit to the leather manufactory ZINJ pearl and leather design. You can also get a look into the workshop where many locals create the beautiful handbags, cases, key chains, backpacks and much more by hand and decorate with pearls. Great thing!
