Mombasa and South Coast


Back to Kenya

Mombasa & South Coast

The southern coast of Kenya is notable for its rich history and former Swahili settlements, its isolated islands, and of course, its beautiful beaches. Mombasa, Kenya's second largest city and coastal entrepot, has a lively atmosphere and charming Swahili architecture, though we recommend a stay in one of the quieter beach retreats or private island lodges outside the city.


Thank you again for coordinating so well every single step of my trip, in a such short notice.
