The humpback whales know it, so do the turtles and the many species of fish that breed in the Vamizi seas: young ones thrive in Vamizi. It’s safe and private, and the living is very easy.
A gently shelving beach, perfect sand and plenty of sunshine make Vamizi Island a haven for parents and children. The sea is rarely rough on the shore and the water is a perfect temperature, with no end of shallows to toddle about in and small wondrous things to see, hear and feel.
There are plenty of toys for children and adults: kayaks, sailboats, snorkelling gear, windsurfers and fishing equipment.
Fishing trips and sea cruises are a full-on marine biology lesson with huge varieties of deep sea fish to be seen emerging from the depths; whales, dolphins or flying fish are often in sight, if not right by the boat.
Scuba instructors can also introduce those slightly older children to their first experiences underwater, whether snorkelling or diving and nature guides can help them discover the island’s land based wonders – exotic birds, monkeys and giant coconut crabs.
Three Kitalas have been specifically designed as family Kitalas, with large double (possible triple) bedrooms adjoining a central decked lounged area. All beds are mosquito netted, even though Vamizi is a low- risk malarial area and, for the night time, babysitters can be arranged.
