The tour picks out some of
the highlights of this colourful city of Mombasa.
You will visit
the Baobab forest along Mama Ngina Drive before
proceeding to Fort Jesus Museum built by the
Portuguese at the end of the 16th century then you
will tour the Mombasa Old Town by foot as you head
to the bustling old fruit and vegetable market. You
will also visit the Elephant Tusks and Indian Temple
before proceeding to Akamba Woodcraft at Changamwe
where you can see the craftsmen at work and select
your carvings at the lowest price you can ever get
in the world.
You will be driven to south Coast of Mombasa to Wasini
Island and while on board an Arabic dhow
sail for one hour searching for dolphins in the
Kisite-Mpunguti marine national - one of the best
marine reserves in Kenya. The park covers 28 sq km
of pristine coral reefs and offers excellent diving
and snorkeling. Dolphins are commonly seen in the Shimoni Channel and humpback
whales are sometimes spotted between August and
October. The dhow trip normally includes lunch and a
walk in the coral gardens on Wasini Island.
Spend the evening aboard a traditional Arab Dhow.
Music, romance and fine food. As the dhow leisurely
cruises in old Mombasa harbour past peaceful creeks
flowing from the island you will dine on a sumptuous
seafood meal. Later you can dance under the stars.
The black African night, the stars as you have never
seen them, music, and the sound of water against the
dhow sets the mood for romance. As you cruise you
can almost sense bygone time when life went at a
much slower pace. Don't miss this one; it is the gem
in the crown of any safari.
