Blessed with a fantastic climate, natural wildlife reserves, amazing scenery, mountains, lakes and 600km of Indian Ocean coastline, Kenya has a unique beauty, enhanced only by its warm and friendly people. It is Africa’s most popular safari destination and its capital city – Nairobi is East Africa’s economic hub. Kenya has a decent tourist infrastructure and lots of resorts along its coastline.
Located on the Coast, just south of the Equator, Mombasa is Kenya’s oldest and largest Port City, where commercial shipping liners mingle with traditional sailing dhows. Well known explorers, Ibn Battuta and Zheng He both visited here in 1331 and 1412. Originally called the ‘Island of Mvita’, the name Manbaca was first heard in 1502. By the 1800s, as more explorers found their way here, phonetic derivations led to it being called Mombasa.
Now a regional cultural and economic hub, modern day Mombasa is a city of great diversity and life. Enjoying temperatures of 25 degrees C with light prevailing trade winds, Mombasa is known for its exotic mix of cultures, rich history, Island’s pace of life, and a fantastic array of leisure offerings for all ages. The coast of Kenya has earned its place as one of the world’s top beaches.
A visit to Kenya however, would be incomplete without a safari experience and for this reason, we urge you to indulge in pre & post tours to the famous Masai Mara National Reserve, Amboseli National Park at the foothills of Mt. Kilimanjaro, the immense Tsavo National Park, the Great Rift Valley and its stunning lakes, Equatorial forests of Aberdares & Mt. Kenya. Whatever you choose to do, know that you will be living the Magic that is Kenya.
Skål Kenya looks forward to hosting you at the 79th Skål World International Congress in Mombasa.
