Mombasa is a city on the coast of Kenya and it is the nation's second-largest city, after the capital Nairobi, with an estimated population of 1.9 million people in 2016, its metropolitan region is the second largest in the country and has a population of 3 million people. Administratively, Mombasa is the capital of Mombasa County, whose current governor is Hassan Ali Joho. A regional cultural and economic hub, Mombasa has an extra-large port and an international airport and is an important regional tourism centre. Located on the east coast of Kenya, in Mombasa County and the former Coast Province, Mombasa's situation on the Indian Ocean made it a historical trading centre and it has been controlled by many countries because of its strategic location. Mombasa is Kenya's main tourist destination. It is located on the Eastern coastline of Kenya bordering the Indian Ocean which has made it a popular destination for its beaches. Mombasa offers diverse marine life, world-class hotels and a friendly atmosphere. There is a tropical climate all year; it is a great destination filled with activities for all ages. Mombasa is a Swahili founded and ruled city. It was founded between the 1st and 5th century. At certain times it was occupied by the Portuguese, Arabs and British and originated back in the 16th century. Mombassa culture today still exhibits that of its past. Historical ruins like Forte Jesus de Mombaça (Fort Jesus), an historic Portuguese fort, and the Old Town are attractions influenced by Mombasa's trade culture, with many examples of Portuguese and Islamic architecture. Navigating around Mombasa city may be difficult for visitors; First, most of the smaller streets and alleys are unmarked and getting around can be extremely confusing. Good news is that there are plenty of rickshaws (tuktuks) practically everywhere you look around; you just need flag one down and tell the driver where you are going (fare is typically a single dollar or 100 Kenyan shillings) within the city; at times fare is as low as 50 Kenyan shillings if your destination is nearby and along the same street. If you’re going out of the city, discuss and agree on a price first before setting off. Moi Avenue is famously known for the giant elephant tusks. Here, we call them “mapembeni” or “pembe mbili”. Moi Avenue is also known for numerous eateries, tour firms, shopping stalls, car dealers, banks etc and runs all the way to “Docks” (entry of the port). Nyerere Avenue begins at the iconic TSS Towers roundabout and runs all the way to the Likoni ferry crossing joining Mombasa Island to the South Coast. Notable landmarks you’ll see along this road include Biashara Bank building, Imaara, Pandya Memorial Hospital, Aga Khan Hospital, Likoni Towers and Nakumatt Likoni complex. Nkrumah road begins at the Holy Ghost Cathedral Catholic church junction and sneaks its way through the city centre all the way down to Fort Jesus (a major historical site in Mombasa city) and gateway to Mombasa’s old town (a tourist magnet part of town rich in Swahili history and culture). The streets host several offices, embassies, universities and the Mombasa Anglican Cathedral. Digo road is one of Mombasa’s busiest streets that links Mombasa CBD with the North Coast. This road begins at the CFC Stanbic bank roundabout that serves Moi Avenue, Nyerere Avenue and Nkrumah Road. There are several public bus stops for those travelling to the North Coast of Mombasa connected to the island by Nyali Bridge. Plenty of food eateries including open air Swahili food joints, fast food joints, No Maneno Bazaar (a famous Mombasa shopping complex), the general post office (Huduma Centre), Bima Towers, Banks and Supermarkets such as A-One, Tusky’s Digo and Budget supermarket are all located on Digo Road. From here, you can take a ‘matatu’ (Local word for 14-seater public transport vans) to North Coast neighborhoods such as Bamburi, Shanzu, Bombolulu, Kisauni and Mtwapa. Likewise, you can easily connect with public transport either way to Likoni Ferry or Docks. Abdel Nasser road is an extension of Digo Road as you drive out of Mombasa City and proceeds to join Ronald Ngala road from Saba Saba junction at the famous Buxton junction. On your way towards the junction, you’ll see the bus terminus for Kilifi and Malindi on your right as well as the junction to Coast General Hospital (Mombasa’s public referral hospital). Jomo Kenyatta Avenue is the main highway that links the CBD to the Moi International Airport and neighborhoods of Changamwe, Mikindani, Miritini and Jomvu. Travellers to Voi and onwards to Nairobi, Kenya’s Capital city (about 450km away) use this road to exit Mombasa city. Numerous buses travelling to Nairobi and other major towns in Kenya and around East Africa have their offices on this street. Mwembe Tayari a famous neighborhood of the city dominates this dual carriage highway with plenty of mosques, shopping complexes (Nawal Centre is all-inclusive), banks and bus stops for Tudor, Nyali Reef, Migadini, Magongo and Mishomoroni matatus, Other major streets include Haile Selassie Avenue (originates from Digo Road and terminates at the Mombasa Railway roundabout) with modern fast food joints such as Bakers Inn, Blueroom and Chicken Inn. Makadara Road is a must visit for foodies, You’ll know you’re on Makadara Road when you smell the sweet aroma from numerous restaurants lined up along the street serving mouthwatering Swahili dishes, Makadara Road begins from Digo Road near the post office and joins Nkrumah Road near the Fort Jesus museum. This street is the gateway to the Old Town of Mombasa and hosts the city’s Central Police Station. Msanifu Kombo, Dedan Kimathi Avenue, Kaunda Avenue, Meru road and Biashara streets are well-known. The best way to explore the city and know your way around is to walk. However, you can also use a tuktuk to get around; they penetrate smalls alleys and maneuver easily in heavy traffic. The Mombassa city center is usually busy on weekdays with lots people and cars. Weekends are a perfect time to stroll around; it’s less congested and laid back. Although traffic is common across the day; peak hours of early morning and evening rush hours are quite busy. The North Coast is one of Mombasa’s most vibrant neighborhoods popular for world class beach hotels, parks, leisure spots and neighborhoods. Beginning from Nyali Bridge, major attractions here include Nyali, Bamburi and Shanzu Beaches that host several sea side resorts. Mamba Village Crocodile Park, Haller Park and Mombasa Marine Park top the list of famous must visit spots. Don’t leave Mombasa without coming here, plans are at advanced stage to build a second Nyali bridge at the far end of Abdel Nasser Road to reduce traffic jams and open up more entry and exit points from Mombasa City. Honestly…. I have no sufficient vocabulary to describe the Old Town of Mombasa. Strategically located within the Mombaca city centre, it’s the perfect place to step back into history and get a real feel of how the old historic towns looked like. The architecture is ancient with a predominant Swahili and Portuguese influence. The sweet melody from the birds, narrow winding streets, and strong cultural influence summarize the enchanting beauty of the old Town. This is the place to be if you love shopping for souvenirs; they’re numerous stores and everyone is really nice and friendly. Furthermore, while here, you’ll find the perfect opportunity to experience the warm hospitality of the Swahilis and Arabs who inhabit the neighborhood. South Coast is famously known for Diani Beach, rated as one of the best beaches in the world. Other major spots aside from Diani, include Tiwi, Ukunda and Shelly Beach. The seaside resorts here and hotels are mind-blowing; the pristine white sandy beaches are a sight to behold not forgetting the peace and tranquility. The South is connected to Mombasa city via the Likoni ferry crossing. Likoni is a large neighborhood South of Mombasa City. Bofa beach Kilifi is strategically located just barely 3 minutes from the town centre and located in a plush and serene neighborhood of Kilifi. The road leading to the beach is quiet with plenty of different species of beautiful trees; you can hear different species of birds singing beautiful melodies as you marvel at the enchanting beach ecosystem. When you approach the beach, you cannot afford to ignore the crystal clear white sandy beaches extending several kilometers. What I love about Bofa beach is its very private and has few people; the perfect spot if you’re looking for a relatively isolated and quiet beach. Weekends are particularly perfect because you can grab snacks, find a good shade and sit down to enjoy your meal as you enjoy the sea waves sweeping across the ocean. A lot of tourists and locals frequent this magnificent beach with unique qualities that make Bofa beach Kilifi a favorite for many people. The giant coral reefs provide the perfect relaxation spots since there are no beach benches here. While here, you’ll be entertained with lots of kids playing in the water as well as participate in plenty of beach sports i.e. football, volleyball, surfing and many more activities. The best time to explore the beach is from early afternoon when the tide is low. At this time, you get the perfect opportunity to explore a larger section of the beach. On many occasions, you’ll see different groups of people jogging along the beach; it’s also a perfect place to ride a bike and enjoy the cool sea breeze. Aside from Bofa beach, there are several other nice places to visit in Kilifi. The beautiful Kilifi Creek a major sightseeing site a few minutes away from the beach is spectacular with breathtaking views of the Indian Ocean and Kilifi bridge. You can also visit the historical Mnarani Ruins to the South as well as sample Swahili delicacies served in numerous restaurants around town. Fort Jesus is a magnificent and ancient landmark of Mombasa City that plays a vital role in showcasing the city’s rich history and cultural heritage. Fort Jesus Mombasa is not doubt one of the most visited sites in Mombasa. However, in this gigantic historical landmark sits the Fort Jesus Museum which is just after the main entrance to the fort. Inside the museum, there are numerous items that were used in the previous centuries. A lot of visitors who come here often forget or spend very little time in Fort Jesus Museum yet it’s perhaps the closest you can come to understanding how communities in the past lived and what type of economic and social activities they were engaged in. Visitors coming to Mombasa often look forward to enjoying their vacations by visiting Mombasa tourist attractions that enable them to relax and unwind. Moving around Mombasa City can be pretty hectic especially if you’re not used to the soaring temperatures and humidity. There are plenty of spots in Mombasa to relax but Mama Ngina drive is a top rated and famous recreational area of Mombasa city that attracts both locals and tourists. Mama Ngina drive also hosts numerous Mombasa festivals and parties such as the annual Mombasa International Cultural Festival and Marathon events. Holidays such as Christmas, Idd, New Year and Easter celebrations attract a lot of human and vehicle traffic. My word of advice; don’t leave Mombasa without coming to Mama Ngina Drive Mombasa tourist attraction. If you don’t want to find a crowded stretch; I advice you visit on weekdays or morning hours. Sunday afternoon is a time we all look forward to. Since it’s the best time to catch up with family and friends, Mombasa Pirates beach also known as Jomo Kenyatta Public beach is the place to be if you’re a beach lover. As the busiest beach in Mombasa, Sunday and Saturday afternoons are always packed with all sorts of activities; families bring their kids to have fun and play with water and sand. The views of the ocean are breathtaking. If you’re lucky, you can see large ships heading towards the port of Mombasa. Pirates Beach Mombasa is dominated by Mombasa residents and domestic tourists. Sunday is particularly busy; finding parking if you’re driving can be a challenge; business for taxis, tuktuks and bodaboda (local word for motorbikes) is at its peak. If you need to sit down, you’ll find plenty of chairs on the beach. Note that you will be required to pay 50 Kenyan Shillings (0.5 dollars) to use a chair. You can order your food and enjoy your meal right on the beach as you watch kids shout excitedly and play with water; it’s fun If you need to venture deeper into the waters and explore the marine life, hire a boat with a glass bottom to explore marine life. The airport in Mombasa has been newly renovated and has increased the frequency of flights in and out of Mombasa from European cities. Kenya Airways offers the most as far as options for traveling to/from Mombasa, Train service is mainly provided between Nairobi and Mombasa. The advantage of traveling by railway is the ability to see wildlife up close. The train ride from Nairobi to Mombasa is estimated at 13 hours. There are meal accommodations and options of purchasing first or second class seats, Buses, while not a major mode of transportation within the city, are mostly used for traveling outside the city. The major provider of transportation in Mombasa is Matatu; the fleet consists mostly of fourteen-seater minibuses. Matatu is quite popular with the residents. Nyali also considered a prime and up-market residential area; it is on the mainland north of the island and is linked by the New Nyali Bridge. It has numerous beach front hotels in the area known as the "North Coast". Nyali has two distinct sections - the posh Old Nyali and the upcoming New Nyali. For many residents, Nyali has now become a self-contained residential area, with two Nakumatts, a multiplex cinema, shopping malls, banks, schools and post offices. This often eliminates the need for residents to cross the bridge and to go into the congested Mombasa city centre. Nyali is home for the Nyali Cinemax complex, Mamba Village, the Nyali Golf Club, and some of the most prestigious academic institutions of the Coast Province. Kongowea: is a densely populated area with 15 villages, two sub-locations and an estimated population of 106,180 residents. Kongowea is a cosmopolitan settlement mainly inhabited by people from mainland who migrated into the city in search of employment, mainly in service and manufacturing sector. The area is adjacent to the rich suburb of Nyali which employs a portion of the village residents. They are mainly hired as cheap labour as watchmen, gardeners, masons for upcoming houses and house help. The most well known villages inside Kongowea include Kisumu Ndogo, Shauri Yako and Mnazi Mmoja, despite being located in this prime area, many residents live under extreme conditions – poor sanitation, high crime rate and lack of basic essential amenities like schools, hospitals and tap water. Kongowea is also home to one of the largest open-air markets in the African Great Lakes. Bamburi: also an outlying township (fifteen minutes drive) along the Malindi road. Bamburi is the location of Bamburi Portland Cement Company. Other notable features in the area are the Mijikenda public beach, commonly known as Pirates, and Haller Park, a nature trail and wildlife conservatory. Kiembeni Estate, also in the Bamburi area, hosts around 100,000 residents. The estate has its own supermarket, several retail shops, salons and boutiques, and a number of licensed drinking dens. The establishments include The Shilla Bar, Turkey Base, Stars Garden and Sensera pub. Kiembeni is arguably the largest estate in Mombasa, and growing even faster. Other areas include, Shanzu, Mkomani09, Bombolulu, Kisauni and, across the Mtwapa creek, the popular area of Mtwapa, which is already located in Kilifi county. The North Coast is famous for its broad entertainment industry which attracts locals and tourists as well. Driving in Mombasa is straightforward and the majority of the roads are tarmacked. Main roads include Jomo Kenyatta Avenue, Digo Road, Nyerere Road, Nkurumah Road, Moi Avenue, Mama Ngina Drive, Barack Obama Road, Nairobi Highway and Nyali Road. Highways connect Mombasa to Nairobi, Dar es Salaam while northward road link to Malindi and Lamu, which also extends towards the border with Somalia. Within Mombasa, most local people use matatus (mini-buses) which are extremely common in Kenya, to move around the city and its suburbs. The tuk-tuk—a motor vehicle with three wheels—is widely used as transport around the city and its suburbs. No more than three passengers may be carried. A boda-boda is originally a bicycle taxi. Especially in cities, the bicycles are more and more replaced by motorbikes
