Day 1: MOMBASA CITY TOUR
The colourful island town of Mombasa with its blend of ancient and modern buildings on the Indian Ocean is Kenya principal port and the country’s second’s largest city. A comprehensive tour of the islands includes the Arab Old Town, with its maze of narrow twisting alleys displaying the beautiful carved doors and Arab verandas, bazaars with curio and antique shops, the Dhow Harbour (still in use), a Hindu temple, a visit to the Akamba wood carvers and a drive to the bazaar fir a short shopping expedition. The highlight of the tour is probably the visit to Fort Jesus. Built in 1593 by the Portuguese to guard the entrance to the Old Dhow Harbour, it is the Island’s Landmark. Four hundred years old, the fort still stands and serves as a historical museum.
Day 2: FULL DAY DOLPHIN TOURS
Kisite Marine Park is the best and most accessible Marine Park in Kenya. Once out on the Indian Ocean, there are regular sightings of dolphins, often accompanied by their rollicking offspring. Within the Wasini Channel, the rare hump-backed dolphins are also often sighted. Scuba diving and fun-diving guests often meet turtles underwater, too.
Day 3: FULL DAY TSAVO
Take a pleasant trip to the Tsavo East National Park. Spend day with game drives in this vast park with lunch before returning to Mombasa. There are many interesting aspects of Tsavo East not least the spine of the Yatta Plateau, one of the world’s longest lava flows. An additional attraction is the Athi River flanked by stately doum palms which, near the Manyani gate forms the Lugard Falls, a long stretch of rippling white water cataracts and a favorite haunt for sunbathing crocodiles. Lugard Falls gush through a small fissure, narrow enough for the foolhardy to leap across, before dropping to Crocodile Point below, where the river changes its name to the Galana. This wilderness is inhabited by a wide range of plains’ game including zebra, several species of antelope among them lesser kudu and hartebeest, warthog and ostrich as well as elephant herds which plunder their way through bush and scrub to the permanent waters of the Athi River.
