Go shopping in Mombasa. Biashara Street is probably the best place to buy kikoi and khanga cloths. The main city market is the Makupa Market, off Mwembe Tayari. Serious souvenir shoppers should also head for Bombolulu Workshops and Cultural Village, where disabled men and women produce high-quality leatherwork, jewellery and other crafts.

Visit the many attractions on the beach road north of Mombasa, including: the Bamburi Quarry Nature Trail (, which also features a butterfly farm; the giant crocs at Mamba Crocodile Village; and Ngomongo Villages (website:, a cultural park demonstrating the lifestyle of 11 different Kenyan tribes.


Try your hand at deep-sea fishing, which is at its best along the coast between July and April. Sailfish, marlin, swordfish, kingfish, barracuda and tuna are all abundant.
