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.
