Take some sweets, pens, pencils, paper, socks for the kids, and look at what the women are wearing - our recycled clothes.

And how happy they are. Great learning experience and a great day out too learn about the Kenyan ways of life in one compound.

Situated in Kenya’s second largest city; Mombasa, just 10 kilometres (6.21 miles) north of Mombasa Island on the road leading to the upmarket Shanzu Hotel, one will find the Ngomongo Villages.

Ngomongo is a tribal cultural village where visitors can gain a greater insight into the tribal community without having to leaving the city and spend days travelling from area to area.

A popular tourist activity for the whole family, the village is situated in an area that was once a limestone quarry and today it is considered an ecological triumph with the land being completely reclaimed and re-established into a 16 000m2 indigenous forest with over 80 different indigenous trees.

The full experience takes between 1.5 – 2.5 hours to complete depending on your engagement and areas of interest. During the visit one will be able to explore the area, visiting the various tribal huts that are each a reflection of a different indigenous tribe.

The villages encapsulate the way of life and culture of 9 different Kenyan tribes, allowing visitors to interact with the locals and catch a glimpse into the intricate details of tribal living. One hut will be a working example of a Mkamba (the wood carvers) tribal set up while the other may reflect the Luo, Rendile or Masai tribal culture.
