The 12th-century Arab geographer Al Idrisi described Mombasa as a prosperous trade emporium selling spices, gold, and ivory to ships from Arabia and Asia. This largest port city and the second-most populous after Nairobi is a melting pot of languages and cultures from all corners of the Indian Ocean. Here, you will interact with Swahili, Indian, Chinese, Korean, and Italian cultures - including their rich food heritage.
