Getting Around Mombasa

KBS (Kenya Bus Service) operate a small but fairly efficient network of public buses within the city. Buses can be recognised by their distinctive livery, painted in two shades of blue. Matatus are privately-owned shared taxis that ply a set of fixed routes. They can be flagged down in the street, and will stop anywhere along the route when requested. Fares are very cheap, but drivers often wait until all the seats are filled up before setting off. Taxis are easily available in Mombasa, and come in a variety of guises including London-style black cabs. They can all be recognised by the license stickers on their windshields.

Main Attractions

Mombasa’s attractions lie in its miles of gorgeous beaches, as well as its culturally diverse history, reflected in a wealth of sites around the city centre. Visitors will be greeted by the gigantic Mombasa Tusks, erected as a tribute to Queen Elizabeth’s visit in 1952. The city’s biggest draw is undoubtedly Fort Jesus, a sprawling 16th-century stronghold built overlooking the harbour. The former Portuguese fortress has been converted into a museum, with torture cells and artillery on display, as well as exhibits on the city’s role in the slave trade. Wander through the historic Old Town, located around Fort Jesus. The district is known for its charming Middle Eastern-style architecture. Explore the Gedi Ruins, a former Swahili town abandoned around the 15th century.
