Welcome To Wadi Lahami

RED SEA DIVING SAFARI

About the Village

Located 10km South of Hamata village, Wadi Lahami is one of the last signs of civilisation before the border to Sudan which lies approximately 300km further South. It is the smallest of the Red Sea Diving Safari lodges, and offers a unique way to experience the beauty of the terrestrial and marine wildlife of the region. It has been developed following the same sustainable tourism model as our other villages, allowing only a limited number of guests and guaranteeing exclusivity of the facilities and services.

 

Wadi Lahami is secluded, simple but comfortable, with a warm team waiting to welcome you. Experience all of your favourite activities but in the most natural environment possible: kite surf, scuba dive, snorkel, bird watch or simply relax close to nature.

 

Wadi Lahami lies on the doorstep of the Fury Shoals, where you will find the most pristine dive sites in the whole of the Red Sea. The hard coral formations of this enormous reef complex are believed to be some of the best examples worldwide, and will take your breath away no matter how many times you visit. One of the unique aspects of the reef system is the variety of different types of dive site. There really is something to suit all levels and tastes, from canyons and swim-throughs, to wrecks, coral gardens and drop-offs. Many of the dive sites are on the classic Deep South liveaboard/safari route, such as Shaab Claudia, Abu Galawa, Maksour, Angel and Satayah, but there are also many which remain off the main safari boat routes, hardly even known about, let alone dived. The reefs in the region are shallow and sheltered making them ideal for divers of all levels, as well as snorkelers and free divers. As a PADI 5* Dive Resort, we offer the full range of PADI courses and support for scuba diving activities as well as rental equipment for those who need it. We are also a member of Green Fins in recognition of the efforts we take to run our operation in an environmentally friendly way.

 

Satayah Reef (Dolphin Reef) is a 3-mile long, world famous reef, less than an hour’s boat ride from Wadi Lahami. It is regularly visited by spinner dolphins who use its shallow lagoons as a sheltered area in which to rest during the day after a long night hunting for food. It is not uncommon for there to be 80-100 dolphins or more in the pod, and they are usually content to share their space with snorkelers and free divers, as long as guests are respectful and quiet in their approach. An encounter with the dolphins at Satayah Reef is something truly special, providing memories which will stay with you for the rest of your life. 

 

Kite surfing at Wadi Lahami is unlike anywhere else. The Red Sea is famous for its perfect kite surfing conditions - shallow lagoons and year-round wind make it the ideal playground for experienced kiters and a perfect learning space for beginners. However, while while some of the more well-known spots have become overcrowded, Wadi Lahami Kitesurfing Center remains intimate and welcoming with no shortage of space on the water. The bay is large but quiet and private with a sandy bottomed lagoon directly in front of the beach. 

 

The protected mangrove area to the north of the village is one of the largest in the Middle East. It is home to many species of birdlife, both waders and shore birds, which roost and nest in the mangrove swamp areas. It is common to see nesting Ospreys, herons and sometimes the Spoonbill as well as smaller birds such as swallows, stone chats, pipits, wagtails and kingfishers. It is a birdwatcher’s paradise, particularly in the months of migration. Mangroves are protected along the Red Sea coastline due to the rich and varied wildlife they provide shelter to, and the area here is no exception.

 

Wadi Lahami is a truly unique place which must be experienced to be believed.
