Things to know about Mombasa (Kenya)
Mombasa (in Coast Province) is the second largest city in Kenya, sitting on the Indian Ocean and is the host to the Coast Province administration. Both a sizable port and an international airport are present. The city serves as the hub of the coastal tourism sector. Due to the numerous ownership transfers and the fights that led to those ownership changes, Manbasa's original Arabic name was changed to Kisiwa Cha Mvita (or Mvita for short), which means "Island of War." The town is also the seat of Mombasa District, which, like most other districts in Kenya, is named after its principal town.
