Moi International Airport Shuttles
Find awesome corners of town before booking your shuttle, choosing between Old Town’s historic markets and old world views of Mombasa Harbour, or go for the coastal charm and ferry terminal at Mzimle, located on the southern end of the island and offering a mini oasis away from downtown’s buzz. For central access to urban parks, restaurants, and casinos, stay in the small Moja neighborhood, or go with something more family-friendly in Mvumoni, which offers close access to the Mombasa Train Station as well as the famed Pembe Za Ndovu (Ivory Tusks) landmark.
Once you know where you’re going and how to get there, make sure you stay organized every step of the way, doing so by printing out your shuttle’s confirmation email as well as any other important bookings, from specialty hotels to vivid views of the wild via Pollman’s Tours & Safaris. Back up necessary documentation as well, scanning your passport, medical prescriptions, and identification, then storing it all in digital form, whether it be through email or cloud storage.
