I have a great experience having dinner on a boat in the night with a well organised live band playing Music... the experience was simply awesome and would encourage visitors to mombasa to sample this beauty of the Dhow while you dine and wine in the Indian ocean

Evening on the Dhow for a group of us doing a conference nearby. Charcoal grilled lobsters were amazing accompanied by some nice white wine whilst slowly meandering up and down the creek. Great live music and space for a dance if wanted. Staff charming and friendly. Had a thoroughly enjoyable time.
