About the tour

Join me on my travels! I am taking a few days away from Nairobi to soak up some sun on the Kenyan coast, and I'm inviting you to join me to learn more about the fascinating history of the oldest part of Mombasa, East Africa's biggest port, and the starting point for any beach holiday on the Kenyan coast. We'll look at some once-regal architecture, learn about the origins of the city, and soak up the breezy, balmy, salty sea air, strolling through the narrow streets as the city goes about its day. Please note, this tour is part of a one-off trip, so not to be missed!

Meet Claire


Whilst Claire is half French and half English by heritage, she is fully Nairobian by choice, and has been in Kenya for long enough to feel right at home in the city. She has lived and worked in six countries, and has always found adventures wherever she's gone: exploring the artistic and off-limits catacombs in Paris, exploring Mexico's coastline in the back of a pick-up truck, chasing alligators in Tanzania, or sky running in Kenya. But what is the common theme behind everything she does? Talking, sharing, and learning something new, so join her on her Kenyan adventures.

Lovely walk through Mombasa with Claire. Absolutely beautiful place and nothing at all like what I'd always imagined, so I'm grateful to Claire for showing us this beautiful place.

I loved it. Mombasa is a fascinating city, with a rich mixture of cultures, and Claire somehow managed to show us the very best of its architecture and history in 45 minutes. And the beautiful ending by the sea and the moments of quiet contemplation were the icing on a gorgeous cake.
