Mombasa City Tour

We will spend some time exploring Fort Jesus Museum and wander through the old town admiring the myriad of shops selling perfumes, embroideries, wood or stone carvings, chests and even Persian rugs.
For thousands of years dhows have plied across the Indian Ocean carrying rare and exotic cargoes of spices and ivory. These romantic old sailing vessels have been largely replaced, but they can still be seen on Mombasa Harbour. You return to the hotel in time for lunch (lunch on own arrangement), afternoon at your own leisure to enjoy.
