Mombasa

Mombasa rests on the exotic shores of the Indian Ocean and serves as a globally popular vacation destination thanks to its classy hotels and friendly and relaxed atmosphere.
Step out of the city life by going to Diani Beach and Safaris. Visit Old Town and Shree Cutch Satsang Swaminarayan Temple for their historical value. And it doesn't end there: get engrossed in the history at Fort Jesus Museum, pause for some serene contemplation at Mombasa Memorial Cathedral, stop by Imani Collective, and enjoy the sand and surf at Nyali Beach.
