ACEX3: Mombasa Sightseeing Excursions, Tours & Safaris
Mombasa is the largest and most popular Island on the Kenyan Coast, with a major port and an international airport. Its historical influence is still visible in Mombasa Town, which is a mystical mixture of ancient and modern culture. The Old Town is dominated by Fort Jesus with its lurid saga of conquest and siege. The narrow alleys are overshadowed by high ornamental balconies, and the vibrant bazaars combine with the New Town to provide an intriguing potpourri of romanticism and practicality. Mombasa has a lot more to offer visitors than just beautiful beaches. Some of the popular attractions in the town relate directly to the historical context, while others seek to complement the tourism industry that the town thrives on. Here is a list of popular tours and sightseeing excursions in and around Mombasa: Learn More >
