Located just 80m off the dazzling white sands of Watamu’s world-renowned beach and National Marine Park, Mwamba Field Study Centre provides simple but pleasant, friendly and relaxed full-board accommodation for birders, entomologists, herpetologists, botanists, researchers and anyone in need of a holiday on the beach and in a forest.

Mwamba is ideally situated as a base to explore the rich diversity of coastal habitats in the Watamu-Malindi area – particularly Arabuko-Sokoke Forest, Mida Creek, Gede Ruins, Sabaki River Mouth and the seasonal freshwater wetlands just inland from the coastline. Mwamba is run with an emphasis on community living with guests and volunteers coming together at meal times and sharing duties such as washing up and cleaning. Like many other A Rocha centres, Mwamba brings people of different faiths together in the context of a shared commitment to the environment. Many guests have commented on the warm welcome they have received and often leave challenged and motivated having witnessed people living out their beliefs in an everyday context.
