The bay of Mida Creek expands across an area of 32 sq. kms. It comprises different types of habitats that are influenced by the tide, for example mud and sand flats, open shallow waters and mangrove forests. In fact Mida Creek is part of the most productive mangrove ecosystems in the world. For good reason, Mida Creek is a recognized International Bird Area and together with Arabuko- Sokoke Forest forms a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve. It is not only a paradise for national waterfowls, migrating birds from Europe and Eurasia also find a place to rest during their journey or they choose to stay at Mida Creek over the winter.
