Mida Creek Conservation and Awareness Group (MCCAG) was formed by ASSETS (Arabuko Sokoke Schools & Eco-tourism Scheme) Guides in 2004. Mida Creek is located 6km south of Gede Junction from Mombasa- Malindi road. Stretching inland from the sea into Arabuko Sokoke Forest is one of Watamu’s true hidden treasures: Mida Creek, a broadwater tidal creek surrounded by extensive mangroves and lined with palms.
This 32km2 creek has wide, healthy beds of seagrass and coral, home to many species of fish and feeding sea turtles, while in the mangroves smaller streams and inlets provide a refuge for crabs and birdlife. Mida is a stopover point for many migratory birds and an essential protected area for their survival. This makes it one of the most important and beautiful natural attractions on the Kenyan coast.
Mida Creek is best explored by canoe. Mida Creek is the best place to enjoy the sunset for an evening breeze, as the setting sun turns the waters to gold and flocks of roosting birds fill the sky.
Flamingoes are often seen feeding in Mida. The creek is also an incredible kayaking destination, with endless small channels and passages through the mangroves to explore where kingfishers hunt in the shallow waters and fish eagles perch in the overhead trees.
