Mombasa Excursions and Short Safaris, Mombasa Tours

While staying in Mombasa, you may plan to engage in some of these excursions available

1 Day Wasini Dolphin Dhow

The  Wasini Island Dolphin Dhow excursion starts in morning when you are picked up from your Mombasa hotel then depart for the South coast, crossing the Likoni ferry . You will have an opportunity to see coastal homesteads and palm tree plantations along the way.  On arrival at the Shimoni Jetty, you will board a traditional Arabic dhow and ride into the Wasini Channel.  Highlights for this Mombasa Excursion will include snorkeling in Kisite Marine Park to spot dolphins (and probably take a swim with them), and possibly turtles. Take time looking at marine-life from a glass-bottomed boat, enjoy an excellent seafood lunch, and then a historical tour around Wasini fishing village and the Shimoni Slave Caves where slaves were "stored" before being shipped off to Arabia in the early 18th century.

Depart Shimoni in the late afternoon to arrive at your hotel in Mombasa in the early evening.

1 Days Funzi Island Tour / Lost Paradise

Funzi Island Tour involve a full day visit to the Funzi Island, a lost paradise, do a mangrove tour with a canoe ride along the Ramisi River. See the crocodiles, the fish eagle, Colobus monkeys in this isolated Island.

After that you might need a break, enjoying the sun on the sandbar in the middle of the Indian Ocean. Get a chance to see dolphins and maybe even swim with them


Full Day Mombasa City and Nature Tour

A comprehensive morning tour of the island including a visit to Fort Jesus is followed by lunch at Mamba Village. Mamba is the Swahili name for crocodile and this “village” is really a crocodile farm. Depart after lunch for the Bamburi Quarry Nature Trail. The wasteland of the stone quarry has been reclaimed and amongst the casuarinas trees and other tropical flora reside a variety of wildlife and birds, Eland and Buffalo, Crocodiles and other reptiles can be seen wandering with crowned cranes. The commercially viable aquaculture complex is also visited.

Mombasa Town/City Tour

The colourful island town of Mombasa with its blend of ancient and modern buildings on the Indian Ocean is Kenya’s principal port and the country’s second largest city. A comprehensive tour of the island include the old Arab town, with it’s maze of narrow twisting alleys displaying the beautifully curved doors and verandahs, bazaars with curio and antique shops, the Dhow harbour still in use, a Hindu temple, a visit to the Akamba wood carvers and a drive to the bazaar for a short shopping expedition. The high light of the tour is probably the visit to Fort Jesus. Built in 1593 by the Portuguese to guard the entrance to the old Dhow harbour, it is the island’s Landmark. Four hundred years old, the port still stands and serves as a historical museum.

Tamarind Dhow cruise

At 12.00pm or 6.30 pm departure from the Tamarind jetty for the lunch cruise or evening cruise respectively. After a welcome cocktail the Tamarind Dhow Nawalicker (meaning Gateway to Heaven) cruises past the Old Town and Fort Jesus. Fantastic sea food meals prepared by the world famous Tamarind Restaurant are enjoyed while a local band plays music to suite all tastes. A tri-lingual guide, fully stocked bar and friendly service all add to the unforgettable atmosphere. 2.45 pm or 10.30 pm return to the jetty and thereafter your hotel.

Coastal Cultural Tour

The coastal countryside and its people offer a different perspective to Kenya’s tribal heritage. The tour provides a glimpse into the traditions and cultures of the coastal people with a visit to a Giriama or Digo Village with our local guide. Continue to Kaloleni to visit the local market and thereafter drive to Kenya Marine land on the North coast, which offers an opportunity to observe numerous species of tropical marine life in giant aquariums. A snake park, situated nearby is also visited and you can watch carvers at work producing the famous “Makonde” pieces of art.

Shimba Hills Tour/Mwaluganje elephant Sanctuary

The Shimba Hills are a short drive from Mombasa. South of the island, they are reached via the Likoni Ferry and are over a thousand feet high which offers one a view of both the Indian Ocean and the African bush. A visit to the MES is highly recommended and is located about 30 minutes from the glistening beaches of south coast. At MES you will experience a unique safari in a spectacular landscape. Elephants here never forget. Like them, you’ll always remember Mwaluganje. MES’s 60,000 acres feature dramatic cliffs and forested hills as well as bush land with baobabs – all striking for the wildlife. Apart from the elephant, you might see warthog, impala, bushbuck, sable, Cape buffalo and leopard.

Malindi and Gedi Tour

Depart from your coastal hotel and drive north to Kilifi through attractive country covered by extensive sisal plantations dotted with huge baobab trees. Cross the scenic creek and continue onto the ancient city of Gedi-a 13th century ruin in the heart of a dense forest. Thereafter proceed onto the coastal town of Malindi for lunch and an exploration of the marine park in a glass-bottomed boat where an experienced guide takes you on goggling and snorkeling. Later, visit a nearby village and watch the Giriama tribe perform exciting tribal dances before driving back to Mombasa by sundown.
