July to October are the driest months in Kenya, and this is just the right season to admire Kenya’s jaw-dropping nature on safari. Although the temperatures in Mombasa don’t vary much throughout the year, April to May are best avoided owing to the rains. That said, the wet season is best time to grab some cheap tickets to Mombasa. Whenever you go, book at least two to three months in advance to get the best deals.
Shop around for your flights to Mombasa: you have plenty of options when it comes to airlines but no direct routes are currently available from the UK. Kenya Airways, Ethiopian Airlines, Turkish Airlines all offer cheap flights to Mombasa, all with only one layover. Flights from London to Mombasa are available from other airlines, including KLM, Air France, Lufthansa and Etihad Airways, but usually have two layovers. From Birmingham, Newcastle, Glasgow and other UK airports, KLM, Kenya Airways and many more airlines offer regular convenient flights to Mombasa Kenya with layovers in Europe and Africa.
Flights to Mombasa land at the city’s Moi International Airport, which lies north of Port Reitz to the west of this amazing city. The most convenient way into the city centre is by taxi, costing around 1500 Kenyan Shillings. If you’re heading right through the city and over to the city’s coastline, the taxi ride will cost a little more, usually some 3000-4000 Kenyan Shillings. If you’re trying to save a few pennies, hop on one of Moi International Airport’s recent additions, a shuttle bus service that will whoosh you right to the Castle Royal Hotel in central Mombasa for the low cost of around 250 Kenyan Shillings. The journey lasts 30 to 50 minutes depending on traffic.
Once you arrive in Mombasa, let yourself be enchanted by the extraordinary old town as you discover the city’s best hideaways with local guides. Head to Fort Jesus, a Portuguese fort and archaeological site dating back centuries and built in the shape of a man. Located on Mombasa Island, this unusual site is sure to fascinate. Nature lovers visiting Mombasa will be enthralled by the magic and wonders of the city’s offerings. As well as golden beaches with clear blue seas for laidback walks with your loved ones or a little solitude, Mombasa boasts natural parks, safari adventures and wildlife that will give even the most hardened traveller tingles.
