Welcome to the City of Mombasa - Kenya
Mombasa (in Coast Province) is the second largest city in Kenya, lying on the Indian Ocean and is the host to the Coast Province administration. It has a major port and an international airport. The city is the centre of the coastal tourism industry. The original Arabic name is Manbasa; in Kiswahili it is called Kisiwa Cha Mvita (or Mvita for short), which means "Island of War", due to the many changes in its ownership and the battles that brought about the changes in ownership. The town is also the headquarters of Mombasa District which, like most other districts in Kenya, is named after its chief town

The city is located on Mombasa Island, which is separated from the mainland by two creeks; Tudor Creek on the west and Kilindini Harbor on the south. The island is connected to the mainland to the north by the Nyali Bridge, to the south by the Likoni Ferry and to the west by the Makupa Causeway, alongside which runs the Uganda Railway. The port serves both Kenya and countries of the interior like Uganda, Rwanda, Burundi, Democratic Republic of Congo, etc linking them to the Ocean.

The city is also home to Moi International Airport. It's main occupants are Muslim, Mijikenda and Swahili people but over the centuries there have been many immigrants, particularly from the countries of the Middle East and Indian sub-continent who came mainly as traders and skilled craftsmen and even after four or five generations, their descendants continue to contribute highly to the economy of present day Mombasa and Kenya as a whole. Recent immigrants are peoples from the interior of Kenya brought to the area by employment opportunities and search for greener pastures.
