Resting in the magnificent Great Rift Valley and presided over by the majestic Mount Kilimanjaro, Kenya is characterised by hauntingly beautiful natural landscapes of forested hills, patchwork farms, wooded savanna and vast forests brimming with an extraordinary abundance of wildlife. The nation’s diverse range of traditional African cultures is influenced by over 70 unique ethnic groups from the Maasai, Samburu, Kikuyu, and Turkana tribes to the Arabs and Indians that settled on the coast. Add to this: an exquisite tropical coastline fringed with breathtaking golden sand beaches; gorgeous coral gardens providing excellent snorkeling and diving opportunities; and a slew of lively beach resorts, and it is easy to see why so many visitors flock here from around the world to experience a truly unique African adventure in one of the world’s most pristine safari destinations.


Days 1 - 2

Set on the spectacularly scenic coast of Kenya, Mombasa serves as both the name of the island and the city which inhabits it. Mombasa is the regional cultural, economic, and tourism centre of Kenya. The island is connected to the mainland by bridges for ease of access, and visitors can also hop on a ferry. It features East Africa's largest cosmopolitan port, which has a rich heritage as a historical trading centre. The Old Town boasts magnificent well-preserved Arabic architecture, vibrant markets, and winding alleyways all permeated with the scent of local spices. Visitors can explore the 16th-century Fort Jesus, which stands watch over the harbour; and visit the beautiful coral reefs and white-sand beaches lapped by the warm waters of the Indian Ocean.
