Pemba Channel Lodge :-
The Pemba Channel Lodge is tucked away in the tiny fishing village of Shimoni on the southern Kenya coast, not far from the Tanzania border, 80 kms south of Mombasa. Shimoni, which means 'the place of the hole' was integral to the infamous slave trade of the 19C. Shimoni is about a 2 hour drive from Mombasa down the coast towards Tanzania.


Wedding Trivia:
WHY IT BECAME "BAD LUCK" FOR THE GROOM TO SEE BRIDE BEFORE THE CEREMONY
Until relatively recently, brides were considered the property of their father. Their futures and husbands were arranged without their consent. The marriage of an unattractive woman was often arranged with a prospective groom from another town without either of them having ever seen their prospective spouse. In more than one instance, when the groom saw his future wife, usually dressed in white, for the first time on the day of the wedding, he changed his mind and left the bride at the altar. To prevent this from happening, it became "bad luck" for the groom to see the bride on the day of the wedding prior to the ceremony.
