Corporate Social Responsibility

Amani Tiwi Beach Resort has embraced the spirit of corporate social responsibility and has over time engaged in many activities. We believe in self development by developing the society.

The resort has been on the front row in the fight against children abuse. This is done by ensuring that gainful employment is offered to the youth in the community and also educating the people on this and its consequences.
On the same note, the resort visits schools around the area. An example is the team visited the students from Kaya secondary school and gave students learning materials such as books, geometrical sets and school bags. The students were also provided with a meal and some snacks during the visit.

The resort also values the essence of clean beaches and their importance not only to the resorts economic purpose, but also to the community; that is why the team at Amani Tiwi Beach Resort takes time to engage in beach cleaning activities.

The Corporate social responsibility in not limited in the coast area only. The resort also organized a Tennis tournament that was held in Kisumu at the Nyanza club. The aim of this tennis was to bring together children from all backgrounds in Kisumu with a game. The motto of the tournament was "Together taking tennis to the People".
It is the aim of the resort to continue participating in activities that are of benefit to the society as we believe that our responsibility is not only confined within the perimeter wall of the resort but also far into the horizons.

Sea Turtles

There are 7 species of sea turtles, 5 are found in Kenyan waters. Unlike tortoises, turtles cannot retract their heads and limbs into their shell.
Green sea turtles can stay under water for as long as five hours even though the length of a feeding dive is usually five minutes or less. Their heart rate slows to conserve oxygen: nine minutes may elapse between heartbeats. Turtles must surface to breathe.
Sea turtles excrete salt absorbed in sea water from their eyes, which is why they seem to cry.
Baby sea turtles circle their nest once after hatching before heading toward the ocean.
Once a male sea turtle hatches and enters the ocean, it will probably not step on land again.
When in the eggs, turtles take about 2 months to incubate and their sex is determined by the temperature. Under 29 degrees they become male, over 29 degrees they become female.

The hatchlings emerge from the nest together, usually at night to avoid predators and the heat from the sun and head to the brightest light on the horizon to direct them to the sea.
Hatchlings have to survive predation
Female turtles mate with several males in the ocean and store the sperm inside them, so a single nest may hold babies from various fathers.
Only one out of one thousand sea turtles survive after hatching.
You may be pleasantly surprised to see turtle eggs on the beachside.
Our Team is specially trained to be sensitive to the environment. Do not litter the beach or sea waters. Different species of turtles eat different things. Their diet ranges from seaweed, to corals, crabs and jellyfish, shrimp, sponges, snails, algae and molluscs.
Turtles often confuse plastics with jellyfish or seaweed which commonly kills turtles.
The sea turtle shell is also known as carapace -specially designed for swimming.
Be careful when fishing. If a turtle gets caught in a fishing-net and becomes distressed, it can drown within minutes
Turtles mate between March-October depending on the species
Turtle eggs take between 45-70 days to hatch, depending on the species
