1. When is the best time to visit Mombasa!

As with other areas in Eastern Africa, Mombasa has two rainy seasons. The longest of which is in April and May, and dusting off in June. You have hours of sunshine, overcast and also few days of “rain-break”, thanks to Kenya being right on the equator. The rains are followed by the long dry season from July through October. This is the best time to visit Mombasa when combined with a safari as the sky has few clouds, and sunshine is abundant. The short rains in Mombasa begin in November and last until the end of December. This is when the shorter hot-dry season begins. Average temperatures vary only slightly over the course of the year. With January and February and parts of March being the warmest month.

2. Location of Mombasa.

Mombasa is a coastal city of Kenya along the Indian Ocean. It is the country’s oldest and second-largest city , with an estimated population of about 1.5 million people in 2017. Its metropolitan region is the second largest in the country and has a population of approximately 3 million people. Administratively, Mombasa is the county seat of Mombasa County.

Mombasa is a regional cultural and economic hub. It has an extra-large port and an international airport, and is an important regional tourism center. Mombasa is located on the east coast of Kenya, and is the home of one of the State House (Kenya). It is a second capital in all but name.
