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. Take a picture with the flora and fauna as the background. It is just beautiful!.
Return to your hotel at late evening.
Price: US$ 120 Per Person.

Jambo Ammos! Words cannot describe the incredible time my son and I had on our vacation with Africa Safari Discovery. From the moment we were met at Kilimanjaro Airport, we were taken care of and that continued throughout the rest of the trip. The camps we stayed at were all fantastic, the food was delicious and the staff at each camp was very welcoming. Our driver, Salim, was very knowledgeable about every animal, bird and culture we witnessed. He did an amazing job spotting the animals for us which allowed us to see the Big Five and so much more. Seeing elephants, lions and cheetahs up close was more than we could have ever imagined. Our short trip to Nairobi was equally as amazing. Eric was very accommodating and took us all around to make sure we got to see as much as possible in the day we had there. All in all, it was the perfect trip! Thank you Ammos, for all the work you did to plan our dream safari. It was great being able to meet you when our paths crossed in Karatu. We will definitely recommend Africa Safari Discovery to any friends or family looking to go on a safari. Asante Sana! Lynn and Cody Heydenreich
