Additional information

Fort Jesus is listed on Unesco’s World Heritage List and is Mombasa’s most visited site. The Portuguese built the fort in 1593 to serve as their headquarters in this corner of the Indian Ocean.

Old Town
From Fort Jesus you walk straight into the multicultural Old Town of Mombasa. Its tapered streets and ancient architecture provide a reflection of the mix of African, Arab, Portuguese, Asian and British inhabitants that resided in Mombasa. Old Town is busy, with lots of traffic, people, businesses and communities.

Spice market
Don’t miss out on Mombasa’s spice market (west part of Old Town), which is an evocative, sensory overload! Stall upon stall offer cardamom, pepper, turmeric and curry powders. Around the corner more stalls along Langoni Road sell delicious street food, which makes for a great snack or lunch. Our tip: have dinner in one of the restaurants on the waters’ edge, where you have beautiful views over the bay and the ocean.
