“Tropical paradise ”
MOMBASA, an island squatting on the Indian Ocean is Kenya's second largest city. It is the main access route to Kenya by sea, and is thus the artery that feeds the country's import/export economy. Mombasa port serves not only Kenya but the neighbouring landlocked countries in East Africa. The town's reputation as a business hub dates back to the 15th century.
Portuguese voyager Duarte Barbosa described it as "a place of great traffic." At one time, the city was a major battleground between the Portugese and the Turks, fighting over control of this vital trading route. The scars and tools of these battles are a major tourism site at the coastal town. Now, Mombasa is best known as a tropical paradise, thanks to its all-round sun and sandy beaches
