The marine nature of Watamu, but the comforts, services and good Italian cuisine.
This could be the summary of the day of the Kenyan Minister of Tourism Najib Balala in the two tourist destinations on the coast.
On a trip to promote the beauty of the Indian Ocean in his own way, between selfie and meetings, and to witness his presence at the seasonal passage of whales off Watamu, Balala chose the comfort of the boat anchored in the creek of Kilifi by the owner of the Olympia Club of Malindi, Pasquale Pes, in front of the famous houseboat "White Star".
Together with him the Minister sailed from Kilifi to Watamu and then witnessed the passage of the great cetaceans together with the enthusiasts and experts of the Watamu Marine Association and the Local Ocean Conservation.
I put out to see this morning, in Watamu to whale watch - Balala wrote on his Instagram account - Every year, humpback whales migrate from Antarctica to warmer climates, congregating in kenyan waters between july and august to calve and mate. During my sail, i spotted a mother and her calf.
Then the inevitable trip to Malindi, for an Italian lunch at the Olimpia restaurant in Casuarina with a large representation of people, including the Minister of Tourism of Kilifi County Nahida Athman. From the Indian Ocean show to pizzas and prawns.
We hope that, between one selfie and another, our dear Balala will remember to promote also the excellence of Malindi's Italian services and its culinary art.
