Mombasa Day Trips Gedi Ruins Malindi Marine Park Tour Itinerary

0700 Hours: Our tour departs Mombasa by road to Malindi located about 120 Kilometers. Gedi Ruins lie 16 km south of Malindi town and approximately 90 Kilometers North East of Mombasa.

0900 Hours: Arrive at Gedi Ruins Museum, a historic site for a 2 hour tour by an experienced local guide. The Ruins of Gedi are the remains of a Swahili town located in Gedi, a village near the coastal town of Malindi.

From the 13th or 14th to 17th centuries, Gedi was a thriving community along the jungle coast of East Africa. Gede Ruins is a 12th Century Swahili village that was mysteriously abandoned some 600 years ago due to unknown causes.

It is now a National Museum, and the ruins are heavily overgrown with beautiful indigenous forest trees, baobabs and tamarind. The guide takes you through the history of the ruins to this present day.

Look out for Syke’s Monkeys, and the Golden Rumped Elephant Shrew can also be seen here. A quiet, careful look in some of the old wells can turn out the odd owl, too.
