Join us on a safari holiday to Mombasa

Mombasa holidays mean sun, sea, and safari. 

With the city’s idyllic beachside hotels, friendly, helpful staff, and all the food and drink you could want, you’ll return home feeling pampered, even after the wildlife excursion of a lifetime on a Mombasa safari holiday.

This region of Kenya is known for having plenty of opportunities to see the Big Five, just one reason why it makes the holiday wish list for countless travellers. And it’s not just the once-in-a-lifetime chance to see these majestic animals in the African wilderness that makes a Mombasa safari holiday so incredible – the city’s vibrant character and picturesque beaches make it a wonderful destination in itself. Add in the all-inclusive treatment, and you’ll be in heaven.Your beach and safari holiday will be a little more work than lounging on the sand, but you’ll still be staying in luxury lodges at night – the perfect spot to rest in comfort after a day of excitement and wonder. 

Whether you’re feeling the sand between your toes or watching animals come to the watering hole from your sumptuous accommodation, Newmarket Holidays will have done all the work so you can focus on enjoying yourself.

Things to see on a Mombasa safari holiday

The wild expanse that forms Tsavo West National Park is full of incredible animals that will make your Mombasa safari linger long in the memory. The sprawling space is also home to some of the most unique and beautiful natural scenescapes in this vast, diverse continent. While staying in the park in your luxury accommodation you’ll be treated to stunning sunsets and brilliant star shows. The city is also full of things to see, with its charming old town and the intriguing Fort Jesus Museum to explore, as well as the tranquil Haller Park.

Frequently asked Mombasa safari questions

Here are a few questions you might have.

  • While Kenya isn’t as conservative as some other countries in the region, it’s still best to cover up when walking around – not only out of respect, but because loose, long clothing will protect you from the sun and heat.

  • The wildlife is practically on Mombasa’s doorstep. The nearest wildlife sanctuary is about a 22-mile drive from the town. However, Tsavo West National Park, the most impressive and diverse area for safari, is around a five hour drive away from the coast.

  • There are lots of elephant populations in the areas surrounding Mombasa, so if you want to see the majestic creatures then this is the place to head.

  • Mombasa is a wonderful place to go for a holiday thanks to its blend of proximity to the safari, intriguing cultural highlights, and luxury oceanside accommodation.

  • Yes, there is a risk of malaria if you visit Mombasa without taking the proper precautions. However, as long as you speak to your GP and make sure you take the right medication, it’s a negligible risk.

  • It really depends on what you want to do. If you’re the sort of person who’s itching to do activities while on holiday, 3-5 days is enough, but if you love relaxing on the beach and having your every whim catered to by friendly, helpful staff, then it’s worth staying a fortnight.
