Get to know Mombasa with Viator
Mombasa is Kenya’s multicultural coastal hub, perched between Indian Ocean breezes and the interior's national parks. Traffic snarls modern thoroughfares, while narrow lanes in the Old Town are a historical maze of carved doors and mosques. On the busy waterfront, sailing dhows and modern cargo ships jostle for space. More pristine shorelines aren’t far, and locals and visitors flock to the nearby white sand of Nyali Beach.
