Welcome to Mida Creek
Hugged by silver-tinged mudflats flowing with tiny ghost and fiddler crabs and long tides, 32-sq-km-Mida Creek is a place where the creeping marriage of land and water is epitomised by a mangrove forest and the salty, fresh scent of wind over an estuary. Eight types of mangroves thrive here, along with dozens of species of birds, including the rare crab plover. Giriama people live next to the creek, maintaining a boardwalk for birdwatchers and offering accommodation to those keen on experiencing a local way of life. Mida Creek is at its best at dawn, sunset, and in the clear evenings when the stars rain down on you. Explore it by stand up paddle board, canoe or boat.
