Sometimes all you need is something to get your blood pumping, and have Adrenaline Rush.
Mombasa isn’t just a tropical paradise, that only consists of sandy white beaches, and chilling pool side with a cocktail (Man I miss having a cocktail).
Here are some 10 Adventure Things To Do In Mombasa, that will definitely make your blood pumping and give you an adrenaline Rush.
Top 10 Adventure Things to do in Mombasa
- Go Kart: This is place is located on the north coast it is called Mombasa Go-Kart, you can also get a group and go Paintballing, Archery Tag. They host bike tours and furthermore they have a restaurant that serves fresh fish that comes from their own fish ponds.
2. Ride a Camel on the beach: This is something, you have at least try once. The adrenaline rush occurs when the camel is standing and when it is sitting down so you can dismount. ( I personally hate it, but I should do it soon)
They can be found at any public beach on the North Coast, with their owners
3. Snorkeling/ Scuba-diving: I would suggest you experience this in Diani, which is on the South Coast. The reason being the water is more clearer and has more aquatic creatures. You can also to this in Mainland Mombasa on the North Coast, most hotels have a Padi Certification. Learn how to scuba dive.
Boats are found on the beach, that can take you to snorkel and also feed the fish, that is located on the reef. During low tide, a small island makes it’s self visible. The boats are personally operated so it will be at a certain fee.
4. Water-sports: The only place in Mainland Mombasa (North Coast) is YUL’s. They offer most of the water-sports from Jet-ski to Banana boats.
Most hotels in the North Coast do offer Jet-skis, Kite Surfing, and Paddleboard. But the best place to enjoy Water-sports without any restrictions on the South Coast the Coral Reef is a bit farther than in the NorthCoast, plus they are dedicated establishments that offer a different variety of Water-sports.
5. Quad and Buggy Tours: Rent a Quad or Buggy and experiences Diani in a new light and interact with some of the locals, during the tour. The company is called xplorediani.
6.Paddle/Kayak through the Mida Creek: This is something you can only experience, in Watamu. The creek is covered with Mangrove trees, the path leads into the ocean.
