Planning Your Mombasa Vacation Travels

SPF 50 sun protection lotion.You spent many months planning your vacation to Mombasa, and the excitement builds as the date gets closer. In order to ensure that you have an exciting and wonderful time, make sure that you plan all of the details about what you’ll need on this trip ahead of time. Failing to do so can cause you to forget something important that could leave you chasing down certain stores once you’re in Mombasa.

First and foremost, you want to make sure that the Mombasa hotel you choose is going to be comfortable, well within your budget, and have the amenities that you want. Second, make sure that you bring enough clothing for various activities. With safaris, Fort Jesus, the wonderful beaches, and the incredible tropical weather, you may need a couple of different types of outfits, including swimwear. You don’t need to pack everything, but make sure that you have a comfortable pair of walking shoes, possibly hiking boots if you plan on doing any hiking when you are here, and flip-flops or sandals for the beach.

Don’t forget sunscreen. Being close to the equator, you will likely burn much more quickly here than what you’re accustomed to back home.

Make sure that you have any prescription medications you require, and that you have enough of it. Always pack a few extra days’ worth of prescription medications just in case your flight is delayed or there is an incident and you can’t get back home when you plan.

Check all of your flights to make sure that the travel agent or you didn’t make any errors with regard to flights getting to and from Mombasa. Checking your flight is generally a simple thing that you can do right from the comfort of your computer.

Have plenty of currency available. While you may rely on your debit or credit card, it is a good idea to have travelers checks whenever you are traveling out of the country. Keep your travelers checks on your person at all times, either in a carry-on bag or your wallet or purse.

Following these tips should help you ultimately have a wonderful vacation in Mombasa.
