Vision: To be a leading Holiday destination and City in the World The coastal
city of Mombasa is one of Africa’s most sought-after tourist destinations, and
boasts some of the best beaches in the world.
Located on Kenya’s eastern coastline bordering the Indian Ocean, Mombasa has
become immensely popular for its exotic beaches, diverse marine life,
world-class hotels and friendly people. Described variously as a piece of rare
exotic delight, and a tourist’s haven, Mombasa has attracted visitors from all
over the world and continues to do so. Mombasa’s rich history dates back to the
16th Century, when it was ruled by the Portuguese, Arabs and British - which
peoples have all influenced the town’s culture. The attractions that still exist
include historical ruins such as Fort Jesus and the Old Town.
Mombasa’s beaches offer an array of activities for children and adults alike,
such as deep-sea fishing and water sports. Tours of the town, safaris in game
parks, and camping can all be planned through travel agencies. Hotels also
incorporate these activities as part of their entertainment, with the aim of
making the trip to Mombasa the ultimate holiday experience! Complementing its diverse culture, Mombasa’s restaurants offer a stunning
array of tastes sprinkled across the town.
Delicacies include freshly-caught seafood made to order on a dhow while you
watch the sunset and listen to the live band playing your favourite songs. The
nightlife in Mombasa is always exciting, and the clubs and casinos can keep you
going all night long. So when you next think of going on vacation, doing some
travelling, or simply enjoying yourself, think about Mombasa and all that it has
to offer. We promise you the time of your life!
