Owner description: Discover Africa off the beaten track: local people in their traditional settlements, palm and mango forests; fantastic views on Creeks and Mombasa North Coast. Bike the Coast offers different half day bush-tours on safe unpaved roads. With the mountain-bike you come closer to the local life than with any other means. All the equipment and at least 2 tour guides provided. English, German, and French spoken. Africa begins right behind your hotel - discover it!

Took the creek tour and was pretty exciting to move through the green landscape and peaceful villages around Bamburi. Professional and careful staff. Nice views of Mombasa from the top of the hill. The tour is suitable for medium trained people, although the guides go at your pace (even pole pole if necessary).

The trip was really educating and fun. I being a local here in mombasa thought it was a really amazing experience. You really get to see the culture and beauty of mombasa rather than just the hotels and loud crazy matatus.

Seeing the creek and the mangroves surrounding it was a breathtaking view.

You got to go to hard to reach places around villages. Best part was you could go on your own pace, so you never really got extremely exhausted, like i thought we would.

The tour guides were friendly and they were also really informative, even if you didn't ask questions.

Hands down the best thing we did! Not exactly biking the coast, but better... biking through villages and part of the forest. We stopped to talk with the locals and some of the children ran next the bikes. It was very hot and humid so I recommend leaving as early as possible. The only thing we found difficult was biking through the sand with a worn bike. The bikes were all in OK shape but definitely showed their wear and tear from the conditions. Changing gears was difficult... but it's Africa, what else could you expect. The guides and owner were all fantastic. You even get some pictures emailed to you from your departure! Definitely a must do in Mombasa, but would recommend staying in south Mombasa for the beaches.
