Safari Mombasa Beach Holiday

Claudious Tours and Safaris

This sultry area offers interesting things to see, beaches to relax on and beautiful nature reserves to visit. Mombassa lies on the coast and is a bustling city with a history stretching back to the 12th century. There is a vibrant mixture of cultures, architecture and entertainment. At the Shimba Hills National Reserve, you will encounter a lovely forest setting with elephant, leopard and the rare, sable antelope. Towards the south, there are a number of beaches and resort hotels.

The beaches are white and sandy with coral reefs to delight scuba and skin divers. On the pleasant Shimoni and Wasini islands there is authentic Swahili culture and a protected marine reserve. North of Mombasa there are several beaches like Nyali, Bamburi, Shanzu, Kikambala and Vipingo that are well-worth a visit. It is here that you will find the exotic town of Kilifi, home to artists and adventurers from all over the world.

The morning begins by transferring you to the dhow “Nawalikher” while in mombasa and would like to do some ocean tour, meaning Gateway to Heaven. Sail gently down the Mombassa creek while you sip cocktails and your tour leader points out places of interest and recalls anecdotes of the East Africa coast’s colorful past. An excellent four course dinner with a choice of seafood or a meat course is the highlight of the evening.

The second day you can also some city tour around the town. The day begins with a tour of Mombassa, including a visit to the famous Fort Jesus and the Akamba wood carvers. After lunch at a local restaurant, travel to Haller Park (formerly known as the Bamburi Nature Trail). The area was reclaimed from a coal quarry and turned into a nature trail. Hippos, buffalo, antelope and bird-life may be seen together with fish that is to be found on the Fish Farm within the park.

These are some of the best hotels that we have along the coastal region of Kenya. When in Kenya I would recommend you use some of these hotels you will love it.
