Mombasa by Night

 

Mombasa By Night

Enjoy the African sunset aboard a traditional Arabian Dhow and experience a memorable evening at Fort Jesus. Your exciting excursion starts at 05:45 pm with a cruise on one of the old Arabian dhows (Husna, Takdir or Biladi). This is a fine example, of the traditional cargo carrying boats that used to ply the Indian Ocean trade routes. Set sail and enjoy the evening sunset at the Tudor Creek after-wards sail on to the Old Port of Mombasa. On Arrival a short guided walk through the old town will give you a taste of some of the spectacular Swahili architecture and charming atmosphere for which the Swahili coast is famous.

As you leave the old town, the imposing stone fortress of Fort Jesus appears.

Built over 400 years ago by the Portuguese as a stronghold at the entrance of the sheltered harbor, it became the gateway to the Dark Continent. The ancient fort is a spectacular example of 16th century Portuguese military architecture that has survived centuries of conquest and attack. Portuguese and Arab fire torch bearers welcome you to witness an amazing sound and light show retelling the fascinating history of Mombasa's landmark through the centuries. You will enjoy a delicious dinner that is served alfresco in the inner courtyard of Fort Jesus. The excursion ends around 09:30 pm.
