Matondoni village is known for the building and repairing of dhows and the village lies at the Noth West coast of the island some 7.3 km’s (4.5 miles) west of Lamu town.
Matondoni village is famous for traditional crafts such as weaving straw mats of palm leaves and coconut ropes.
Kipungani villagers are friendly and hospitable and the village itself is very attractive – an unspoilt example of coastal rural life. The people of the village are mainly fishermen, some of who still build the traditional dhow fishing boats.
