Mida Creek

Mida Creek, East Africa's largest mangrove creek, is a vital part of the marine eco-system in the Watamu / Sokoke World Biosphere Zone.

The mangrove roots provide a rich source of nutrients for the fish, crabs, shrimp and oysters found in this area. These fish and crustaceans then provide the food for Mida's famous bird population and the local villages, completing the food chain.

Young corals and fish also start their lives in these nutrient rich waters, before the tides sweep them into the Indian Ocean where they spend the remainder of their lives.

Mida Creek is an excellent bird watching area. Traditional dugout canoes, Arabic dhows and Western motorboats are all used for bird viewing, water skiing and relaxing boat cruises on Mida Creek.
