Kenya Tour

Mombasa extension (5 days)

Price 531 Euro

Extend your tour with some relaxing days in the beautiful coastal city, Mombasa, where you can unwind and find some good entertainment!
Mombasa is the second largest city in Kenya, situated on the Indian Ocean, on Mombasa Island and extending up to the mainland. The original Arabic name is Manbasa; in Kiswahili it is called Kisiwa Cha Mvita (or Mvita for short), which means “Island of War”, due to the many changes in its ownership and the battles that brought about the changes in ownership. Mombasa is bestowed with beautiful white sandy beaches and a deep historical and cultural heritage, which is why it is the centre of the coastal tourism industry.

Attractions in and around Mombasa include:

 

      • Wild Waters: Kenya’s premier family water entertainment park
      • Fort Jesus: Portuguese military fortification built in the 16th century, 2,36-hectare area, showcasing the Renaissance belief in perfect proportions and geometric harmony, mirroring the human body
      • Mamba Village: Largest crocodile farm in Africa and home to over 1000 crocodiles, both young and mature
      • Mombasa Old Town: Time stands still in Old Town Mombasa. Wander through its narrow streets and marvel at the historic houses that whisper tales of bygone eras. Admire the intricate carvings on ancient wooden doors, bearing witness to centuries of history. Visit the Old Port, a reminder of the Portuguese rule that once shaped Mombasa. Indulge in culinary delights at local food stalls and explore vibrant markets for affordable souvenirs. Experience the captivating charm of Old Town Mombasa and create unforgettable memories of a journey through time.
      • Haller Park: Nature park where you will see animals such as giraffes, hippos, monkeys, tortoises, and crocodiles.
      • Bombolulu Coast Workshop and Cultural Center: Cultural performances and a wide array of handicrafts for sale (handmade ornaments, bags, carvings, and jewelry), watch traditional craftsmen at work.

        With this Mombasa extension package, we will organize your transportation to and from Mombasa as well as your accommodation in Mombasa. One of the guides familiar to you from the Footsteps & Handshakes tour will take you to the bus or train that will take you to Mombasa. Upon arrival, a local guide will pick you up and take you to your accommodation. He/she will be available to assist you during your stay in Mombasa – this includes providing you with advice and possibly accompanying you to one or two of the above attractions. After your 5-days stay, the guide will take you to the bus or train that will take you back to Nairobi. Upon arrival in Nairobi, you will be picked up and taken to the airport by your familiar tour guides.
