Mombasa City Tours Itinerary
The 1 Day Mombasa City Tour explores some of the best highlights of this colorful old city. Your tour will visit the bustling Mackinnon fruit and vegetable market (locally called 'Marikiti' - a Swahili corruption of the word market), which has been in operation since colonial days.
You will enjoy a walking tour in the streets of the Mombasa Old Arab Town, you will see the intricate hand carved doors, and balconies hanging over the narrow streets, unchanged for hundreds of years.
You will visit Fort Jesus - a fortress which was built by the Portuguese in the 15th century to protect their interest in East Africa against Omani Arabs. See how it went from a fort to a prison, to a Museum - a tourist attraction.
Walk under the famous elephant tusks on Moi Avenue, which you probably have seen in those old African adventure movies. Finally we visit the Akamba wood carvers center where you can purchase a fine hand carved African memento.
The 1 Day Mombasa city tour is a short excursion full of culture, history and not to be missed. For the photographer, sights and opportunities for great photos abound.
