Mombasa City Tour Half Day Sightseeing Trip Itinerary

0800 Hours: Depart from your beach hotel in the morning and drive to Mombasa Town. Begin the tour with a visit to the Baobab forest along Mama Ngina Drive.

The Baobab forest contains a number of trees like the baobab, Neem tree which is medicinal and is supposed to cure over 40 illnesses. Proceed to Fort Jesus Museum built by the Portuguese. The fort is Mombasa’s most popular tourist attraction.

The fort, located along the coastline near the Old Town, is a monumental piece of architecture that was built in the 16th century by the Portuguese.

The fort has a museum that displays various artifacts from the era where Mombasa served as a transit point for the slave trade and commodities, and which enjoyed regular visits by seafarers and the like.

Its interior comprises of torture rooms and prison cells where slaves were kept in captivity before being traded.

Weapons such as canons, which were used to defend the fort from invading foreigners as well as rioting locals, can be seen both inside and outside of the fort. The tour of the Museum takes about 1-3 hours to look around depending on your interest and level of fitness.

We take a walk into Mombasa “Old Town”. It is the part of Mombasa that is reminiscent of the days when the Arabs exerted a heavy influence on the town and its culture, and especially in the architecture and language.

(Kiswahili has a lot of phrases derived from various Arabic dialects). It is well known for its ancient buildings, extravagant art designs and curio shops that sell antique and popular Kenyan souvenirs.

Old Town is best seen when explored by foot with an experienced guide, as the streets are too narrow to accommodate a large number of vehicles. The town’s inhabitants are mostly of Arab origin whose forefathers once roamed the same streets of the town.

Later visit Mombasa “Tusks” which are symbolic representations of entrance into the heart of the town. The tusks were built to commemorate the visit of Queen Elizabeth to the town in 1952, as they lay directly on the path from the port to the town.

Ivory was considered to be an exquisite commodity during the time, and in essence the tusks were meant to embrace the Queen and the British Empire into the town and within its social structure. Coincidentally the tusks also spell the letter “M” for Mombasa.

Next we visit the Hindu Temple. It is a one of the many symbols of Mombasa’s cultural diversity. The temple is a popular tourist spot and a tour can be taken inside the temple, with a historical background of the temple given by one of the temple gurus.

Extravagant idols and stone carvings of the various religious beliefs are displayed within the temple and on its walls. It is located near the Railway Station just outside the perimeter of the downtown area.

We also visit Mackinon market 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.

1500 Hours: Afterwards, transfer back to your hotel.
