Experience Mombasa: Exclusive City Excursion

The largest port on the East African coast, Mombasa, although a busy modern city, still retains its low-rise character, particularly between the massive Portuguese-built Fort Jesus and the old dhow harbour, which remains much the same as it was 150 years ago. The attractive buildings are decorated with ornate balconies. 

Mombasa is a kaleidoscope of different cultures and languages and is a town that thrives on tourism. Our full-day excursion provides a wide-ranging overview of this fascinating city. Let’s go!

From the harbor, we drive through city center, past the vegetable market, the busy main bazaar; the ornately decorated Hindu Temple; Mombasa’s spectacular landmark Elephant Tusks, and the Akamba woodcarving industry.
