Arab forts. Portuguese architecture. Perfect palm-fringed beaches. Clear turquoise water. Kenyan culture. Fusion food by default, with a population that has included residents from China, India, North Africa, Great Britain, and surrounding East African nations. The train to Mombasa is one of the best parts about coming here. You're guaranteed to see giraffe, elephants and other wildlife from your dining car seat.

Mombasa may sound like the evil lion from the Lion King but it's actually a sultry, steamy seaport full of Graham Greenish characters and echoes of the now defunct slave trade - narrow alleyways, Portuguese forts and crumbling colonial villas. Raucous nightlife and the nearby postcard beaches of Tiwi make Mombasa a most beckoning port of call in East Africa.
