Shela Village is a lovely quiet place – just about 800 people live in the village and after a short period you will feel part of the community.

The community around Mnarani House, Shela, Lamu Island is primarily Muslim, therefore we encourage our guests to respect their ways of living as well as the day-to-day traditions.
