At the heart of Mombasa lies the iconic elephant tusks which are among landmarks that represent the city. A tour to the second largest city in the country would be incomplete if you do not visit the tusks located on Moi Avenue. The symbolic tusks were first erected in 1952 to commemorate Queen Elizabeth’s visit who was staying at Mombasa Club and later joined by her sister.
Mama Ngina Drive
The 26-acre land is famed for being a place where tourists, both local and international, can relax and watch the world- class ships passing by as they arrive and leave the port of Mombasa. The area lies magnificently facing Likoni crossing channel and has Kenya’s oldest golf course, the Mombasa Golf Club.
The Fort, built by the Portuguese in 1593-1596 to the designs of Giovanni Battista Cairati to protect the port of Mombasa, is one of the most outstanding and well preserved examples of 16th Portuguese military fortification and a landmark in the history of this type of construction. The Fort's layout and form reflected the Renaissance ideal that perfect proportions and geometric harmony are to be found in the human body. The property covers an area of 2.36 hectares and includes the fort's moat and immediate surroundings.
