Day 2: Bilene

After an early morning swim in the clear waters of the inland lake that stretches for 27 km, breakfast is served, after which you can relax on the beach at our campsite, watch the fishermen at work, and chat to the locals.  There is a local market where you can find an assortment of curios, and a walk through town is a must. Your local guide will accompany you on a boat trip across the lake to the shores of the Indian Ocean, and from there on a short hike along the beach to where you will have the opportunity to observe the Hawksbill, Green and Leather-back Turtles that make this area their home.
