'North Malindi' refers to the region north of Malindi including Sabaki River Mouth, Ngomeni & Mambrui, before the coastline curves into the vast Ungwana Bay.
Sabaki River Mouth
The Sabaki River Mouth is situated a few kilometres north of Malindi town - on the northern end of Malindi Bay. The Sabaki River is Kenya's second longest river. It is approximately 390 kilomteres long. It is known as the Athi river in it's upper stages, the Galana River in it's mid section, and finally the Sabaki River as it finally meanders into the Indian Ocean.
Sabaki River Mouth is listed as an Important Bird Area (IBA) by Birdlife International. The tidal mud flats are a vital habitat for migratory waders, gulls and terns, and the coastal scrub and wetlands adjacent to the river mouth are an important habit for shorebirds and other waterbirds.
