It is precisely because of its strategic location that the culture, customs and architecture of Mombasa are influenced by Arab sailors. The Muslim religion predominates here. Tourists who are interested in history and different cultures wll enjoy visiting Mombasa very much.
Your journey to Kenya's second largest city, Mombasa, will begin at around 8am. The departure depends on the current traffic situation and the location of your hotel. We will agree on the exact time and place where to pick you up and we will confirm it a day before the trip.
If you come on the tour of Mombasa from Diani Beach, you will take the ferry to the city and as the first thing you visit will be the famous Moi Avenue with its monumental elephant tusks. The tour will continue to the famous Hindu temple Swaminarayan, which is one of the most amazing examples of Hindu architecture in Kenya.
After visiting the temple, you will head to the old Arabian port, where you will see traditional Arabic sailing ships called Dhau. They are still used today and they provide trade between the Persian Gulf and East Africa. In the western part of Mombasa is the village of Akamba, which you will also visit. Here about five hundred people from the Batu tribe work. They focus on handmade production of traditional statuettes, masks and other souvenirs.
From the western part of the city, you will head directly to the city center for the largest fruit, vegetable and spice market. During lunch you will relax and then visit the Old Town, the most authentic part of Mombasa with its old houses of Arabic architecture, mosques and local markets. One of the oldest buildings in Mombasa is Fort Jesus, built in the 16th century by the Portuguese, as the first fortress to withstand gunfire. Seen from above, the fortress has the shape of a human figure and in 2011 was included amongst the UNESCO monuments.
At the end of the tour, you will visit Haller Park - a natural park in Mombasa, where you can feed giraffes, turtles or crocodiles.
After an exhausting day full of wonderful experiences, the driver will take you back to your hotel.
Shimba hills is a national reserve located just 33 km from Mombasa. It is an area of coastal rainforests, a place with many rare plants and countless birds. Shimba hills are also known for their high concentration of elephants and the occurrence of the rare Sable antelope.
We recommend the trip especially to tourists who are interested in one-day safari trip and do not want to spend time in a car on the way to the parks. As it is a rainforest, observing animals in lush vegetation is very interesting and unique.
Head to the border with Tanzania where 3 days full of beautiful untamed nature await you, complemented by unforgettable morning views of the snowy Kilimanjaro. You will visit two national parks, two different ecosystems. You will have enough time and peace to observe the wild life and you will meet the Masai, the inhabitants of Amboseli. This trip is intended for tourists who plan to let Kenyan nature into their hearts.
