Mombasa holidays

Mombasa is actually an island, connected to the mainland by two causeways to the west, and by a bridge to the north, but still linked only by ferry to the south. The city is intricate and its streets wriggle deceptively. At its appealing heart is the Old Town, a lattice of lanes, mosques and old houses sloping gently down to the once-busy dhow harbour. Fort Jesus, an impressive reminder of Mombasa’s complicated, bloody past, still overlooks the Old Town from where it once guarded the harbour entrance. It is now a national monument and museum.
