MOMBASA BEACH HOLIDAY
Mombasa is a place so famous in the Kenyan history and a commercial, cosmopolitan port town at the coast spreading into the Indian Ocean. Mombasa is an island connected to the mainland by bridges and ferries. The town overlooks a wide harbor, where commercial shipping connects with traditional sailing dhows.
The true heart of Mombasa is found in the old town, among the narrow winding streets and Arab architecture.
At the water’s edge is Fort Jesus, an imposing fort that stands watch over the harbor.
The high gun turrets, battlements and underground passages of this 16th Century Fort were the centre of a historic struggle for control of the Kenya coast between the Portuguese army and the Shirazi Arabs many years ago.
Modern Mombasa is a city of great diversity and life where historic events and progressions are greatly important with its busy port serving the landlocked Uganda.

Dr. Haller increased the mineral content of the soil, planted trees, added a fish farm, and created a wildlife park where each animal has a function within the flourishing ecosystem. Wildlife found here includes giraffes, Cape buffalo, zebras, waterbucks, and hippos. The park was also home to a famous interspecies couple that became an Internet sensation after the 130-year-old tortoise, Mzee, adopted Owen, an orphaned hippo. 160 bird species also add life to this park giving bird viewers a perfect chance for photography. A 15 minutes drive will take you to Nguuni nature sanctuary where you will see giraffes, ostriches, eland, oryx, and several bird species.
