Lying on Kenya’s sun-drenched Indian Ocean coast and easily accessible by air, Mombasa has long been one of Africa’s top beach destinations for holidaymakers seeking a classic sun, sea and sand vacation.
But success also means busy beaches and bustling resorts. Instead, try a Mombasa beach holiday the Go2Africa way: intimate, luxurious accommodation in quiet, exclusive settings, far from the crowds. Our selected boutique hotels will appeal to privacy-seeking honeymooners and couples while families and groups of friends will love the independence and flexibility of a Mombasa private beach house or villa.
Most of our recommendations are centred on Diani Beach, set 30 kilometres south of the Mombasa and world-famous for its flawless white sands and safe, shallow water. But why stop at a beach holiday? Kenya is home to teeming game reserves and Mombasa lies tantalisingly close to the coastal Shimba Hills Reserve, ideal for safari day trips.
But it’s the Masai Mara – home to the Great Wildebeest Migration and the country’s best year-round game viewing – that makes the best safari and beach combination. Flights connect each destination quickly and easily and thanks to local airstrips, you don’t even need to fly into Mombasa. You can toast the Indian Ocean sunset the same day you began with a dawn game drive.
Browse our range of pre-packaged holidays and safaris for inspiration. Alternatively, simply contact one of our African Safari Experts and they’ll tailor-make the perfect Mombasa beach holiday for you.
