We will pick you up at your hotel and visit the Akamba woodcarvers in their village, Changamwe, where we can see them at work. Finished hand-made products are on display and for sale in the exhibition rooms.
Then we will head for downtown Mombasa, which is actually located on an island. We will passs the Hindu Temple and Moi avenuy with Mombasa's famous landmark, the giant tusks.
We continue through Ganjoni Street and Nyerere Avenue to the Likoni ferry, which connects the island to the southern mainland. From Mama Ngina Avenue, we have a view of the entrance to the new Kilindini Harbour, the biggest port in East Africa.
Our next stop is Fort Jesus, which was built in the late 16th century by the Portuguese and is now a museum. If you like, you can visit the museum. Afterwards you will have the opportunity to stroll across the bazaar of Kibokoni, the old town inhabited by the Swahili. Finally, we will visit the Old Port, which is still being used by dhows. These old commercial ships commute between the mainland and islands like Zanzibar, Pemba or Lamu, but also sail as far as Saudi Arabia.
At the end of the city tour, we will take you back to your hotel.
