Vanga is the southernmost town in Kenya. It is a coastal fishing settlement that remains untouched by tourism. The town itself is only accessible from the Kenya/Tanzania border post at Lungalunga, via a 17 km mud road through plantations, groves and forest. Vanga itself is built within the mangroves and has to be approached through the swamp which is often flooded at high tide. It is an area relatively rich in natural resources with two rivers that flow all year round, the ocean, mangroves, forests, available land for agriculture and opportunities for sand harvesting. 

There are two main access earth roads that require 4 wheel drive preferably, and get flooded. They are therefore difficult to access during heavy rains. In terms of local facilities, there are 2 health facilities in the area, 4 chemists, 8 primary schools and 2 secondary schools in the surrounding area. The enrollment rates for primary schools is 90% and 40% for secondary.
