Mombasa Holidays and Safaris;Mombasa Travel Holiday Destination Kenya.
Holidays in Mombasa have two faces. There's the bustling island city with its authentic African atmosphere. Then there are the nearby beach resorts, reached by bridge or ferry, where luxury hotels hug the smooth white sands and the pace of life is as laid back as a sunbed. So, when you travel to Mombasa you get the best of both worlds: the exciting buzz of Kenya's second city and the classic resort holidays package.
Mombasa's hotels are generally of the up-market variety, so don't hold your breath for bargain holidays. However, if you're looking for the extra value of all inclusive holidays, Mombasa is a good choice. Take the Bamburi Beach Hotel, for example. It offers a good all inclusive package, including plenty of fun sports and pastimes. Alternatively, there's the Southern Palms, where top of the attraction list are a pair of stunning free-form swimming pools, each with a rather convenient swim-up bar.
Having all the culture and history of the city on your doorstep is one of the big plus points of holidays in Mombasa. It's been a trading post for centuries, and the old town is packed with colourful little bazaars where you can pick up a bargain if you're prepared to haggle. Colourful 'khanga' cottons are a good buy, as are the beautiful, hand carved sculptures and knick-knacks. And there's also an exotic market where you can get mouth-watering fresh fruit and quality vegetables at knock down prices.
Mombasa Facts and Information
With causeways, bridges and the Likoni ferry linking it to the mainland, Kenya’s second city feels like it has one foot firmly in Africa and the other in the Middle East. A trading post for centuries, and still a busy port, its historical old town is a maze of narrow streets, overhung by wooden balconies and sprinkled with mosques and minarets.
There’s a real buzz here, a constant melee of hustle and bustle appreciated only on foot. And you can sightsee as you stroll as you shop - the area’s crammed with little shops selling antique jewellery, bright khanga cottons, batiks and beautiful wood carvings. Overseeing it all is the 16th-century Fort Jesus – a relic of the city’s Portuguese past - and an Anglican cathedral recalling the colonial days. And in the harbour, low slung dhows with big buff sails share the water with cargo ships.
Modern Mombasa fans out beyond the old quarter, marked by the famous twin ‘tusks’ and focused on Moi Avenue’s central shops and the Mwembe Tayari market area. This is African Mombasa, slower, more relaxed, with speciality restaurants for European, Asian and Swahili cuisine, along with bags of seafood dishes and seasonal tropical fruits.
The city isn’t known for its beaches, though the long sands of Nyali and Bamburi are near enough for a full day of watersports. An exotic idyll it’s not – but it’s timelessly intriguing.
