Mombasa is very different than the rest of Kenya due to the Arabs and Indians who are living there. You will find many mosques, temples and a Portuguese fort. We enjoyed ourselves at the Diani beach with chasing away the beach boys, playing bao (an original African game), snorkeling, reading and eating fish. We visited a sacred forest (Kaya Kinondo), the Colobus Monkey Trust and mangroves. Furthermore we couchsurfed with a very nice Kenyan family and we slept in a treehouse.
