The Mida Creek Conservation Community is a local community umbrella group consisting of 11 sub-groups, all of whom are engaged in conservation and community work. Our main activities are based on the eastern side of Mida Creek near Dabaso.
We involve the local community in practical conservation, environmental education and awareness and sustainable management of the natural resources.
Towards this aim, we organise mangrove plantings and beach clean-ups and have initiated several income generating activities including beekeeping, selling mangrove tree seedlings, crab farming and other aquaculture, poultry rearing, selling handicrafts as well as doing an eco-tourism programme.
We do several eco-tourism activities so you’re bound to find something interesting. You can visit the Sita Community Snake Park, walk along the boardwalk and get an educational tour of the crab and fish farms, take a canoe or motorboat tour through the mangroves or up to Kirepwe Island from Dabaso landing site, enjoy a picnic lunch, sundowner or Arab Ruins tour at Kirepwe Island or be entertained by traditional Giriama dancers at Kirepwe.
There is literally no place else on earth quite like Mida Creek so join us for a truly unique travel experience!
The Crab Shack, Mida Creek's incredibly exclusive restaurant, is waiting for your visit! This restaurant was built with the support of RECOMAP (which supports environmental and eco-friendly community initiatives)and is run by the members of the community.
Situated at Mida Creek, not far from Dabaso village, the restaurant is a discreet, low impact wooden construction standing at the edge of the mangrove forest with panoramic views of the Creek- a beautiful place for a romantic dinner, a meal with friends and family, or just the perfect spot to watch the sunset whilst having sundowners!
