Day Trips Starting from Mombasa – Kenyan Coast
Mombasa, the second most important city of the country, is also the largest and most popular island on the Kenya coast.
This old but vibrant gateway to Kenya is a mystical mixture of ancient and modern, with a cosmopolitan population blending Africa, Arabia and Asia. But not everyone realizes that this picturesque port is an island with two deep water harbors.
Evocative of the east, graceful sailing dhows unchanged throughout the centuries, arrive on the monsoon winds, while ocean liners berth just around the headland. Fringing the dhow harbor is the Old Town, dominated by the ancient Portuguese Fort Jesus, a maze of narrows streets overshadowed by high ornamental balconies of quaint shuttered houses and vibrant open bazaars.
The larger ‘Mombasa’ area consists of Mombasa Island,Diani in the Coast, Watamu,Kilifi and Malindi in the north. These are the places we start our Mombasa Area Day Tours from.
