InterNations — A Community for American Expats in Mombasa

Hello to all Americans in Mombasa! Are you interested in getting to know fellow expats in Mombasa? Looking for advice from other Americans, e.g. wondering if there are any bars in Mombasa which will be showing your favorite baseball or American football team’s upcoming match or where to go in town for st■ turkey?

There’s no doubt about it: Mombasa is a diverse city. The home to Kenya’s only large seaport is a coastal city known for being a regional cultural and economic hub and Kenya’s main tourist destination thanks to its diverse marine life, mild climate, and much more! With the system of matatus (minibuses) and tuk-tuks, navigating your way around the city from one place to the next is simple. This also means that if you don’t want to live among the hustle and bustle of the center, you can enjoy a quieter life in the residential neighborhoods such as Tudor or Nyali, for example, which are a short journey away from Mombasa’s center.

Although Mombasa has lots to offer, you might be wondering where and how you can meet other Americans in the city. Luckily, InterNations is here to make this easier for you! You’re warmly invited to join the InterNations community. Within our international network in Mombasa, there’s a vibrant circle of American expats from all regions of USA, including New York City, Los Angeles, and beyond.
