The evening cruise is the most renown of all the coastal trips. An enchanting evening of exotic seafood blended with a romantic cruise aboard an authentic Arab Dhow around the old port of Mombasa Town. The dhow, Nawalilkher, was built in 1977 for trading. At 23 meters, she is the largest dhow on the coast. Purchased in 1986, she was converted for restaurant use by her original builder Fundi Bini on Lamu Island, under the watchful eye of Mohammed Shalle, who is still her captain today.
Fort Jesus, built by the Portugese in 1953. Here a vibrant evening includes excellent cuisine and the re-enactment of East Africa's turbulent history in an extravagant show.
After the show, you are escorted to a spectacular dinner served in the fort. With torches to light the surroundings under a moonlit sky, the night air is filled with the call to prayer from nearby mosques.
A delicious dinner is served. Transfers are provided to
With a fascinating history dating back to 200 AD, Mombasa is the largest port in East Africa. Your day takes you down an intriguing maze of cobbled streets, past overhanging balconies and through mysterious doorways to bustling markets filled with exotic spice, fruit and colourful fabri. Visit the Akamba wood carvers and enjoy lunch on the Tamarind Dhow. In the late afternoon visit Haller Park, a former quarry now reforested and stocked with animals.
A great oppurtunity to purchase some of the wonderful crafts and other souveniers of your stay in Africa.
