MOMBASA FREE CITY WALKING TOUR..
I am a Kenyan tourism operations management graduate and a travel enthusiast who dreams, eats and sleeps traveling. I am always on a travel mission to discover new places and less visited destinations. My love for wildlife, nature, adventure and culture runs through my veins and I am very knowledgeable about travel destinations in my country that will give you a fascinating and memorable experience. Come and join me we walk together.
Walk through the city center towards the historical old town of Kibokoni where you will find the famous Fort Jesus Museum. Find out how this building was designed by the Italian architect Giovanni Battista and was built between 1593 and 1596 by the order of King Philip of Portugal to guard the old port of Mombasa.
Learn everything there is to be learned about Mombasa and how it evolved. After that, pass the Mombasa Club, Africa Hotel, Mandhry Mosque, Government Square, entering the Old Port and continuing towards the Old Spice Market. Walk past the old colonial houses and mosques as you discover the culture and origins of the city. Stop for lunch at one of the best restaurants in town, where you can enjoy 1 dish of seafood or biryani - a Swahili delicacy.
After lunch, take a walk along Mama Ngina to admire the scenic views of where the Mombasa Island ends and the ocean begins. See the Likoni Ferry channel which connects the North to the South Coast, then stop at the famous Pembe za Ndovu Elephant Tusk sculpture which can be found on the back of the local currency. Find out how this sculpture represents how Mombasa historical symbolised the gateway to the Arab ivory trade. Stop here to take photos or do a little shopping.
Later in the afternoon, head over to Haller Park in time to feed the giraffes. Discover how a barren landscape of disused limestone quarries was convereted into a vibrant and diverse ecosystem of forest, grasslands, and ponds. Currently, Haller Park plays host to a variety of wildlife including hippos, giraffes, buffalos, and antelopes as well as smaller mammals and birds. The Park consists of a Game Sanctuary, Reptile Park, small demonstration Fish Farm area, Palm Garden, Crocodile pens and a giraffe viewing platform.
