Kenya - Mombasa & The South Coast (Chapter)
This is the Mombasa & the South Coast chapter from Lonely Planet’s Kenya guidebook.
There’s something in the air here. It’s the smell of salt and spice on the streets of Mombasa and the sound of muttered chants from a Jain temple. It’s the sun’s glint off coral castles, ribbons of white sand and teal waves.
- diving head first into beautiful waters alive with rainbow-coloured fish and playful dolphins in the Kisite Marine National Park.
