2-Night Masai Mara Safari from Mombasa

The airport is located on the Kenyan Coast about 10mm from the City of Mombasa on a North Westerly direction. Moi International Airport grew from what was known as Port Reitz Airport, which was constructed during the Second World War to serve as military airfield accommodating DC-3. Upon realizing the tourism potential of the Coast Region, the Government of Kenya decided in the early 70s to expand the Port Reitz airport in order to accommodate a larger aircraft that would enable bigger passenger numbers to come to Mombasa. It has since continued to grow in terms of facilities, as well as passenger figures, and are currently close 1 million passengers a year, with the potential to handle slightly over 2 million passengers a year.
