Day 6: Mombasa City Mamba Village Tour
During your short stay in Mombasa, there are different activities, which can keep you occupied. The colourful island town of Mombassa with its blend of ancient and modern buildings on the Indian Ocean is Kenya’s principal port and the country’s second largest city. A comprehensive tour of the island include the old Arab town, with it’s maze of narrow twisting alleys displaying the beautifully curved doors and verandas, bazaars with curio and antique shops, the Dhow harbour still in use, a Hindu temple, a visit to the Akamba wood carvers and a drive to the bazaar for a short shopping expedition.
The highlight of the tour is probably the visit to Fort Jesus. Built in 1593 by the Portuguese to guard the entrance to the old Dhow harbour, it is the island’s Landmark. Four hundred years old, the port still stands and serves as a historical museum. Either have lunch at your hotel or have it at outside your hotel. Then you continue with the excursion to Mamba Village which hosts Africa’s largest Crocodile Farm.
Your visit will coincide with feeding time at 5:00pm. This one is great for the kids. This trip will also include the beautiful botanical in this area. Nature in all her glory with the assistance of man, presents breathtaking views. Great places to take pictures to send back home or just to put on the mantle.
