MOMBASA IS THE SECOND LARGEST CITY in Kenya, lying on the Indian Ocean. It has a major port and an international airport. The city is the center of the coastal tourism industry. The original Arabic name is Manbasa… in Kiswahili it is called Kisiwa Cha Mvita (or Mvita for short), which means ‘Island of War’, due to the many changes in its ownership. The town is also the headquarters of Mombasa District which, like most other districts in Kenya, is named after its chief town. If you plan to take in an excursion to Mombasa, please be advised that these places are of Muslim majority and long dresses are strongly recommended. Try to avoid clothes that show too much of your body, or skin-tight clothes unless you are at the beach.
There are many accommodation options to choose from. Please contact us for more details.
