Mombasa Safari -
Safaris & Day Trips from Mombasa

Want to experience a thrilling adventure? Here are scenic Mombasa safari destinations that are an absolute must-visit.

Other than its pristine beaches, Mombasa is also a captivating destination with safaris that are of great value for your money. 

One great thing about all these safaris is that they are stunningly beautiful but completely undeveloped and well of the radars of most tourists. These safaris are a few hour drives from Mombasa city and well accessible by either private or public means. 

You won't find long lists of Mombasa safaris here but, be assured that none of these safaris are likely to disappoint. 

Here is my best of Mombasa safari destinations you have to visit when in Mombasa.

Funzi Island

Me and my wife on Funzi Island - Lost Paradise Beach

Funzi Island is an unexploited gem waiting for you to experience it.

In a deserted environment, Funzi island is the best place where you can experience the beauty of untouched nature and the unchanged culture of the Wadigo people. 

This wild island is a living paradise that makes amazing sandbank beaches. The island is scantily populated hence giving you the filling that the island is privately just for you.

Deep blue waters and tropical mangrove and vegetation give it that heavenly feeling. It is possibly the best place on the south coast.

Chale Island

If you have always dreamed of escaping to a tropical island of elegance and romance, book the next flight to Chale Island. Located offshore from the mainland, Chale Island is home to a captivating beach surrounded by tropical gardens of mangrove trees and coral cliffs. This island is paradise incarnate.

Access may be limited. And if you are lucky enough to spend a day basking under the sun, you’ll not only walk away feeling reinvigorated but forever charged as if this mumble has left an enteral footprint in the sandy shoreline that is your soul.

Wasini Island

Wasini! The magic of attraction. Lashed with tropical vegetation caressed by spackling waters, Wasini Island is home to world-class snorkeling and great sea safari timing with wildlife. 

Enjoy swimming with dolphins and migrating whales in an oceanic oasis of Kisite Mpunguti marine park. Then later, tour the slave cave at Shimoni and interact with locals on the island - make sure you sample their cuisine; it's delicious.

Shimba Hills - Sheldrick falls

It's also a sanctuary for the endangered sable antelope - said to be the most beautiful of all antelopes.

This woodland is home mostly to herbivorous species and a wide range of birds and spectacular physical features like the Sheldrick falls and a picnic site.  Here is our Shimba Hills review.
