  Port Map

Mombasa is set on a bay of the Indian Ocean, south of the equator. It has a deep natural harbour which makes it a key port on the classic trading routes between Arabia, Africa, India and the Orient. Mombasa is Kenya's 2nd and oldest city, which serves as a port for landlocked Uganda and north-east Tanzania, includes Old Mombasa, situated on a small offshore island, and a bigger, more modern mainland metropolitan area connected to the isle by bridge, causeway and ferries.Mombasa cruise port

Behind everyday bustle of contemporary Mombasa lies a long history. Don't miss the opportunity to see its intricate mosques and ornate Hindu temples, imposing Fort Jesus (created in 1593 by the Portuguese), and the maze-like lanes of the old Mombasa town, with their massive studded wooden doors and glimpses of the old harbour. Nearby are the beaches of the dazzling Indian Ocean coast of Kenya, or some may prefer to enjoy a safari to one of the renowned Game Reserves or National Parks, among them a moving 'fly-in' visit to spectacular Masai Mara.
