explore this park under a lush canopy of eucalyptus trees and sidle up to giraffes at the park’s viewing platform. A stroll around these richly forested grounds will bring you to a game sanctuary, reptile park, fishponds, a languid palm garden and yes, a crocodile pen.
A visit to the fort and its massive interior and 18m (60 ft) high walls is like unfolding a dramatic display of Mombasa’s history. For whoever controlled the fort, was master of the city and the wealth of the Indian Ocean trade routes.
This protected area is a favorite amongst snorkelers, divers and anyone drawn to the dramatic colours and creatures of the sea.
If crocodiles hold a special place of interest for you, (and who isn’t entranced by these strange, prehistoric beasts?) then a visit to Mamba Village is a must. The largest reptile farm in Kenya, you’ll find pools filled with every variation of croc – from the smallest hatchlings to a 5m (15 ft) long “Big Daddy” beast, who is reputedly 100 years old.
Mamba Village also features a serpentarium with a collection of snakes, a botanical garden and an aquarium. Look for displays of aquatic plants and orchids. And if all that wasn’t enough, the village also offers horseback riding with lessons, and even camel riding! There’s plenty to fill out your visit, from a leisurely stroll through the gardens to an in-depth tour of the world’s most fascinating reptiles.
