Tired of the Brutal Cold this Winter? Get Away to the Tropical Paradise in Mombasa

beach shisha4No matter where you live in the Northern Hemisphere, this winter has already become quite a handful. From massive ice storms to incredibly Arctic frigid air masses holding in place for extended periods of time, it’s enough to make anybody weary about winter. If you’re tired of this winter already, there’s still time to make plans and get away for a week or more to a tropical paradise known as Mombasa, Kenya.

This tropical destination offers incredible beauty, amazing culture, and a wealth of opportunities for people to explore, see natural wildlife they just don’t get to see at home, and swim in crystal clear, turquoise waters that gently kiss white sandy beaches.

In Mombasa, you will find friendly people, great accommodations, and some of the best weather anywhere in the world. You can stay in one of dozens of incredible hotels throughout Mombasa, relax poolside while sipping a tropical beverage, basking in the sun and working on your tan.

You could also head to Fort Jesus to see one of the iconic images and cultural attractions here. You could also head to downtown Mombasa, walk along the marketplace, and see the incredible artwork created by developmentally disabled and challenged adults and children that can inspire you when you return home.

If you’re looking for something completely unique that you can’t find anywhere else close to home, visit one of the wildlife sanctuaries here and see elephants, giraffes, and other amazing creatures roaming free in their natural habitat.

When you spend time in Mombasa, you will return home feeling refreshed, recharged, and ready to take on whatever life throws your way. Winter can be tough, especially when the frigid temperatures don’t want to ease their grip, but when you get away for a week or two to this incredible destination, winter won’t faze you quite the same way again this season.
