For years, the Port Mombasa has been known as “the city of merchants”. Dating back to the times of Vasco Da Gama, it became an increasingly busy trading post for the region. Due to its location, strategically placed midway between South Africa and the gulf of Eden the Port has experienced tremendous traffic through the years.
The Port of Mombasa is the gateway to East and Central Africa,and is one of the busiest Ports along the East African coastline. The Port provides direct connectivity to over 80 Ports worldwide and is linked to a vast hinterland comprising Uganda, Rwanda, Burundi, Eastern Democratic Republic of Congo, Northern Tanzania, Southern Sudan, Somalia and Ethiopia by road.A railway line also runs from the Port to Uganda and Tanzania.
