About the Venue

Mombasa is a place entrenched in history, yet at the same time a fascinating, commercial and cosmopolitan port town situated in Kenya on the Eastern part of Africa. Mombasa island is connected to the mainland by bridges and ferries. The town overlooks a wide harbor, where commercial shipping mingles with traditional sailing dhows.

The true heart of Mombasa is found in the exotic old town, among the narrow winding streets and Arab architecture. The atmosphere is always heavy with the scent of spices. At the water’s edge is Fort Jesus, an imposing fort that stands watching over the harbor. Modern Mombasa is a city of great diversity and life. This is a town where all are welcomed and quickly absorbed intothis great coastal melting pot. Mombasa is a place where both history and progress are greatly valued, a busy harbor with a unique tropical pace. www.magicalkenya.com
