Details of Mombasa

Mombasa

Kenya's most famous coastal city lies on an island connected to the mainland by bridges, and it's an enchanting fusion of Kenya's native cultures and its colonial past. Iconic buildings such as Fort Jesus dominate the skyline of this laid back beach city, giving some indication of its former colonial importance. Wandering the streets of Mombasa's Old Town is tantamount to time travel, but the more modern part of the city is a dynamic and bustling commercial and industrial centre very much anchored in the here and now. A gateway to the many beautiful beaches and secluded islands of the Kenya Coast, Mombasa is also home to an international airport connecting to neighbouring countries and the world.
