Mombasa is the second largest city in Kenya and one of the deepest harbors in the world. This is also one of the oldest people’s habitat in the eastern Africa. The available historical documents indicate that human beings have been leaving here since 2000 years at least. The city of Mombasa lies on the coral island of area 230sq km. Ethnically Mombasa is very rich with the major influence of Asians and Arab culture. Fifty mosques, dozens of Hindu and Singh temples give to the city an oriental climate. However, for majority of the city habitants Swahili is their mother tongue and Swahili culture strongly decides about Mombasa cultural difference from the remaining part of the country.
There are regular flights from Nairobi to Diani Beach (flight from Wilson Nairobi airport) by: Air Kenya, Safarilink and Sax. This is the most convenient connection with the capital of the country. Moi International Airport in Mombasa is the option for overseas flights as it will provide visa and custom clearance. Transfer from Mombasa to Sonrisa will take from 1.5 up to 3 hrs depending on the traffic on the ferry connecting the island with the mainland.
