We will leave Mombasa in the morning and drive north along the coast. On our way, we will pass beautiful landscapes, Shimo La Tewa prison, vast sisal plantations and the town of Kilifi. The "ghost town" of Gede is located in the middle of the jungle. Built by the Arabs in the thirteenth century, it was one of the largest settlements at the East African coast. Now it has fallen to ruins.
We will drive on to Malindi, which used to be a center of slave trade. First we will visit Malindi Marine Park and make a trip in a glass bottom boat. The coral reefs boast a fascinating underwater world with a great variety of tropical fish and plants. Then we will visit a pillar erected by the Portuguese discoverer Vasco da Gama before having lunch in a hotel or picknick in a scenic spot. In the afternoon you will have the opportunity to stroll the narrow lanes of Malindi or shop for souvenirs on the local market.
There is also the opportunity to visit a butterfly, snake or bird farm.
Before heading back to Mombasa, we will visit a Giriama village and watch traditional dances. An entrance fee is payable at the village.
