About Mombasa

Mombasa, East Africa's largest port, is a cosmopolitan city rich in diverse cultural influences in Kenya. Mombasa cruises provide access to the city's white-sand beaches lined with coconut palms, a historical and walkable Old Town, a colorful spice market and even a crocodile farm. Take an excursion to Mombasa Marine National Park and Reserve for terrific diving and snorkeling among colorful coral reefs and cerulean waters.

Head to the Haller Park animal sanctuary to meet ancient tortoises, giraffes and crocodiles. And don't miss a visit to UNESCO World Heritage Centre Fort Jesus, a 16th-century Portuguese military stronghold that overlooks the Indian Ocean.
