The current local time in Kenya is determined by the East African Time zone, which puts Mombasa, the country’s coastal city, three hours ahead of Coordinated Universal Time (UTC). Mombasa, known for its idyllic location along the Indian Ocean and its beautiful white sandy beaches and luxurious hotels and resorts, is the second-largest city in Kenya and located in the southernmost part of the country. (For the current local time, refer to the section above.)

The Tropical Climate of Mombasa

The Mombasa region enjoys a tropical climate, characterized by warm and humid days with an average temperature of 32 degrees Celsius or 70 degrees Fahrenheit. The area experiences two main seasons: the dry and wet seasons.

The Dry Season in Mombasa

The dry season in Mombasa, which occurs from June to October, offers the perfect weather for outdoor activities such as sunbathing, snorkelling, windsurfing and walking. The warm and pleasant weather during this time makes it the ideal time to participate in these activities. Additionally, the dry season is the peak season for tourism in the region, which often leads to higher prices at hotels and other establishments for both local and international travellers.

The Wet Season in Mombasa

Overlooked by most tourists, the wet season is still a great time to experience the area. The typical weather during the wettest months is characterized by heavy rainfall and occasional thunderstorms, but don’t let this put you off as the rain during these months is mainly confined to morning and night time, leaving plenty of time to enjoy various activities during the day. Mosquitoes are also few to none during this time, and the nights are not as warm. Additionally, the area is less crowded, and most hotels are a lot cheaper at this time of the year. Some of the activities to be enjoyed at this time of the year include game viewing, day trips to local parks, and walks on the beaches. Refer to our attractions section for a comprehensive guide on the various attractions and when to enjoy them.

Nguuni Nature Sanctuary

by admin
Nguuni nature sanctuary
Nguuni nature santuary

Nguuni nature sanctuary Mombasa offers a one-of-a-kind experience for those who are enamoured by the elegance of giraffes. Here, you can come face to face with these majestic creatures as they roam freely in their natural habitat.

With the recent downpour of the late April rains, Nguuni nature sanctuary will soon be under a lush green coat of grass flecked with colourful wildflowers. Creating a picture of what Africa should be; miles of open fields where giraffes gracefully roam free, randomly snaking away. A place where the skyline lacks the very destructive human touch.
Just ten minutes away from Bamburi, Nguuni Nature Sanctuary is a reclaimed 28 acres patch of land adorned with acacia trees, shrubs, and ponds. Once considered infertile and inhabitable, Nguuni’s nature sanctuary is a result of one man’s ( Dr. Rene Haller) vision that saw an exhausted quarry turned into an oasis where animals and birds now thrive.

The sanctuary is home to families of giraffes, onyx, birds, snakes, bees, and elands.
It provides a perfect picnic location set against a stunning backdrop with a healthy number of giraffes that will happily photobomb you, giving you Instagram-worthy out-of-Africa pictures enough to give any influencer a tone of the much-coveted likes.

Nguuni nature sanctuary

The scenery dramatically changes with the change of seasons. During the wet months of the year, this expanse of wilderness transitions into a photogenic green landscape with lots of colourful wildflowers, and when the rain goes, it turns into a savanna landscape. The wet months offer the most beautiful scenery. Though muddy and sometimes slippery( if you are walking) a visit during the days when the rain breaks and the sky is clear is the most preferable for me. The afternoons are better as the guides hold animal feeding sessions, and you get a bonus of the sun setting behind the Nguu Tatu Hills.

The sanctuary offers picnic grounds, an events area, camping grounds public library, and a dispensary for the locals.
My thoughts: The management could consider adding a few other species like zebras and maybe another ostrich to keep the one already there company.
Who goes here: Families, couples, friends, and solo travellers
What to wear: closed-toe footwear if trekking up, comfortable clothing, a hat, and sunscreen.

What to bring: a happy attitude, friends, snacks and a camera.

Guides are available upon request at the entrance.

Admission Rates at Nguuni Nature Sanctuary

When it comes to admission rates, Nguuni nature sanctuary offers different prices for residents and non-residents. Resident adults can enjoy the sanctuary at a cost of Kshs.350.00 while non-resident adults will be charged Kshs.800.00. This allows visitors who live locally to enjoy the beauty of the sanctuary at a more affordable price.

Hours: Everyday from 9:00 – 5:00

Contact: 0700 337068

Location: Off Kiembeni Road, Mombasa

Reminders, always respect wild animals.

Known worldwide for its historical significance, beaches, and beautiful weather, Mombasa is slowly rising into a start-up destination in Kenya, a domain currently dominated by Nairobi.

The term ‘start-up’ refers to a company in the first stages of operations. Founded by one or more entrepreneurs, these companies generally start with high costs and limited revenue, thus looking for funding from various sources, such as venture capitalists.

Steered by the set up of new digital companies, Mombasa emerged as the second most preferred destination for start-ups after Nairobi, according to StartupBlink’s (a Swiss-based online platform that provides matchmaking services allowing entrepreneurs to find cofounders) most recent report.

Mombasa is Kenya’s second city to appear on their start-upstart-up list and was ranked at position 2 in Kenya, 7 in Eastern Africa, and 756 globally among other global cities like Francisco, London, and Nigeria. This is a big achievement for Kenya’s coastal region which currently has 11 start-ups on its list, as opposed to Nairobi which is home to 100 plus start-ups.

According to the report, Lagos which is currently sitting at position 122 globally, climbed to the 5th position becoming the highest-ranking African city, at the expense of Nairobi, which is now ranked 136th worldwide, 6th in the Middle East and Africa region, and second in Africa.

Some of the firms operating from Mombasa include HydraTech (software and data), Appettea (food tech), Tekizo Africa Limited (energy and environment), Clikham IT Solutions (software and data), and MicroDam Telecomm (Hardware and IoT), Osta Tech Ltd (software and data), AAA Platforms Ltd (software and data), Triplescreen.tv (marketing and sales), Studia Labs (software and data), Brance Technologies (software and data), and M-Tiba (healthcare).

While the city of Nairobi decreased 20 spots to 136th globally, Kenya improved one spot this year to rank 61st globally, 1st in Eastern Africa, and 2nd in Africa.

San Francisco, New York, Beijing, Los Angeles, London, and Boston are said to offer the best hub for start-ups. In terms of countries, the United States (one), the UK (two), Israel (three), and Canada (four) were ranked as the most favourable countries for start-up companies.
