    Stop At: Old Town, Near Ndia Kuu Road, Mombasa 00200 Kenya

    Experience the oldness of this town is reminiscent of the days when the Arabs exerted a heavy influence on this town and its culture which can be seen when you walk through the narrow streets and view the architecture. The original inhabitants of Mombasa live in the Old Town and they speak Swahili which is similar to the one spoken in Zanzibar. This is to mean that historically, the town of Mombasa and many other Coastal Town including Kilifi, Malindi, and Lamu were colonies of the Sultan of Zanzibar, this brought about the intermarriages and other exchange of social and economic activities.
