Mombasa

The main priority is to make the most of the glorious sunshine

Mention Mombasa to most people, and one image will spring to mind - that of chasing animals through the wild on an exciting safari adventure.

But a Mombasa holiday has another side one of beautiful, idyllic beach resorts where life runs at a snail's pace and the main priority is to make the most of the glorious sunshine in Kenya.

Mombasa is steeped in centuries of history as a trading post, and its markets and bazaars are still great places to shop for sculptures, colourful cottons and a variety of sometime weird but always wonderful craft items. But remember, you're expected to haggle!

Accommodation on a Mombasa holiday covers all types, from small, humble bed and breakfasts, through apartments to top-of-the-range luxury hotels, so you've plenty of choice, whether youre looking for a package holiday or all-inclusive holiday.

The warm Indian Ocean waters are ideal for snorkeling, and if your visit is early in the year you might be lucky enough to catch sight of a manta ray or whale shark. You don't need to venture far from the shore to explore the long reefs which skirt the coastline and can be seen in vivid close-up.

A visit to the vast Masai Mara game reserve is an essential excursion on your Mombasa holiday. The hills, planes and River Mara are home to lions, elephants, giraffes, cheetahs, leopards, hippos and wildebeest. It's possible to take a balloon flight over parts of the reserve, giving you an unparalleled view of the animals as they go about their daily lives.

Returning to the city, this might be the perfect time to take a romantic evening trip aboard a traditional dhow and enjoy the good food, music and romantic atmosphere as you cruise in Mombasa Old Harbour. Highlights include a sumptuous seafood meal, dancing under the stars and a gentle sail past the peaceful creeks of Mombasa Island.

Kenya's coast is lined with tropical beaches and colourful coral reefs both north and south of Mombasa. Diani beach to the south is a well-regarded natural stretch silvery sands fringed by palms and spectacular coral reefs perfect for snorkellers, scuba divers and glass-bottom boat trips. North of Mombasa, Bamburi offers soft white sands and coral reefs, whilst Nyali Beach offers more peaceful sands, aquamarine waters and Africa's best wreck dive, ideal for more experienced divers.
