Mombasa, with a population of 900,000, is no sleepy seaside village. Its beachfront hotels appeal to travelers in search of sun, sand and surf, while its Arab, Indian and colonial European heritage makes for a wide variety of sights to see. Can't find a taxi? Travel by tuk-tuk, a three-wheeled auto rickshaw.

One Day Tsavo East National Park safari -A nature and wildlife safari trip originating from the Kenya coast beach resorts in Diani,Bamburi and Kilifi.Connecting road drive duration is 3 hours and offers the " big five" wildlife spotting experience.Transport,Lunch and park fees is included.Tour ends in the evening.
They cover and think about everything that you actually have a holiday.Real pros.Easter Vacations are professionals, ,they keep pick up times and advise you on what to do..all options and recommend to you what is best depending on your itinerary.For example they advised us to travel from Nairobi -Mombasa by SGR where the picked us for South Coast and return by air from Ukunda. It was a splendid idea!

Me, my wife and our daughter had a fantastic time wandering around this beautiful, peaceful and tranquil beach. Nyali Beach is one of Kenya's best Beaches with beautiful white sand, stunning clear blue water and abundant amount of coconut trees and wonderfully diverse marine life. The views of the Atlantic Ocean is quite beautiful and in the far distance we saw fishermen going fishing in their wonderful dhows. Nyali Beach is really a place where you can get lost in its beauty and you can also be in a very reflective mood concerning life issues. The best part of this visit was surely the sight of the stunning sunset. Me, my wife and our daughter just sat down and watched the mind blowing spectacle of the sunset, which was such a calm, peaceful and breathtaking moment, it was as though we were witnessing the sight of a new planet and beginning of a new life, it was pure magic. Me, my wife and our daughter had a memorial time at this very beautiful and "paradise" beach.

Haller Park was a lovely open zoo with all the animals in their natural habitat. It has beautiful nature trails and a variety of animals. It is not like spotting animals in the bush, but it was nice and well done. We saw hippos, tortoises, giraffes, water bucks, eland, water buffalo, crocodiles and a slew of monkeys. It was easy to take great pictures. It was a fun trip but exhausting in the high heat and humidity. It is a wonderful oasis surrounded by city.

Colobus Conservation was established in 1997 as a not-for-profit organisation to promote conservation of the colobus monkeys and address the threats to its survival. The organization works in partnership with local communities to promote the conservation of the colobus, along with other endemic primate species, and the unique coastal forest habitat on which they depend. Today Colobus Conservation programmes focus on habitat conservation and community linkages as well as human/primate conflict management, welfare, education and research. The objectives and work of Colobus Conservation is recognised internationally by AZA Colobus Species Survival Plan (SSP), Pan African Sanctuary Alliance (PASA) accreditation and are supported by well known conservationists Jonathon and Angela Scott through their role as Patrons.
Deeply appreciate the work that this group is doing. Our tour was short and at least 50% of the tour talked about Baobab trees??? We did get to see some of the monkeys that were there and it was educational. Our tour guide was good but other staff almost seemed like we were a bother? I thought the experience would have been more interactive than it was.

Fort Jesus 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.
It’s an old fort that used to be a line of defence for Mombasa. If your in to your history etc then yes go. Watch out for the people at the entrance who want to show you around. There just just trying to obtain money from you. You can just go around at your own pace and take it in for yourself

Nice long beach north of town, between Nyali and Shanzu beach. It's good for enjoying beachlife, either you go for a beachwalk, swimming or cold drinks and food. On sundays the southern part, The Pirates, gets filled up with locals. Anyway you have to get used to the beachboys, but their are friendly. When the tide is getting high it's good for kiting. When it comes to hotels there are plenty of options beachside in most pricelevels. There are plenty of options when it comes to bars, restaurants and nightlife.
