The Old Town area of Mombasa is located on Mombasa Island in the same area as Fort Jesus. Please check out my blog on Fort Jesus in case you missed it.
To start out my tour of Old Town, I had my Uber driver drop me off at the famous elephant tusks. From there I took a stroll towards old town in the direction of Fort Jesus.
Old Town is an interesting place. In some areas the buildings were tightly crammed together, in others you were bombarded with either pleasant or not-so-pleasant smells. Once you get deep within Old Town, you really get a sense you are wandering through centuries passed. If you happen to visit, you might want to find a guide, as it can be really easy to get lost.
Thanks for dropping by! I hope that you enjoyed my travel photos and commentary, and will return for more travel content in the future.
