E27***92We came here in February. Fort Jesus is an interesting piece of Mombasa's history. You can learn about the city's strategic importance and how it changed hands between the Omanis and Europeans so many times. A nice diversion in Old Town.
pxy0705Tsavo National Park is a paradise for herbivores. It is also the only national park in Kenya where you can get off and walk. From the gate of the scenic area, you can see the iconic stone cone, which can actually be climbed. There are many European and American rock climbers climbing by hand. Going deeper, you can see all kinds of herbivores, the most common ones are zebras and gazelles, eating grass leisurely on the pasture, appearing very free.
In the small seaside town of Watamu in Kenya, I accidentally took a hotel away from the city. On an island in the national park, I took a tuk-tuk and then changed to a boat to arrive. I was attracted by this idyllic base. The only three guests we went to the hotel.
The hotel has a large garden and swimming pool. The location of the restaurant is just overlooking the Indian Ocean. There is a wooden balcony, except for the park staff. During the day, the sea garden was extinguished at night, and the sky was replaced by the Milky Way. We sat on the balcony and counted the stars.
The remote African continent of Kenya, in addition to the famous Maasai Mara National Park to see the animal migration, there is also the opportunity to play the original Indian Ocean, that is to reach Mombasa.
The beaches here are occupied by Europeans and Americans, and few Asians travel. Coming to Mombasa, there aren't too many umbrellas, not too many tourists, only this original beach.
You can see people riding camels on the beach, and some people are on the beach with local stalls. Don't think that the presence of seaweed has made the quality of the waters of Mombasa beat. Actually, the blue of the sea is not inferior to other islands known for its sea beauty, and the seaweed is mixed with blue on the shore. Another more unique beauty.
