Mama Ngina Drive (LightHouse)

There’s an amazing place in Mombasa where people go to sit and listen to the music of the Indian Ocean till late in the night. First time visitors to Mombasa will be amazed at the hundreds of people sitting on the benches, inside their parked cars or own chairs at Mama Ngina drive. It is incredibly popular place to hangout with families bringing tables and chairs on Sundays for an evening family dinner. Mombasa residents and visitors love to just sit in solitude or with friends/family and watch ships enter and leave the harbour as the busy ferries cross the Likoni channel late into the night.

You will also find different food vendors selling different coastal snacks, from Cassava chips (Kachri ya Muhogo) to Babu Kachri and some Madafu (coconut water). It is a tradition passed on from generation to generation.

If you ever find yourself bored on a Sunday evening, just hop on a tuktuk and head to Mama Ngina drive and enjoy your evening
