Mombasa Port begins construction of new cruise ship terminal

Dec 19, 2016: East Africa's biggest port of Mombasa will spend 100 million shillings ($980,392.16) to build a new cruise ship terminal aimed at boosting tourism, according to the port management.

Kenya has started constructing its first cruise ship terminal at its Indian Ocean seaport of Mombasa, hoping to boost tourism which brings in a substantial portion of the east African country’s foreign exchange earnings.

Cruise ships currently use the main cargo terminal at Mombasa. The new facility will be the seaport’s first terminal customised for the luxury vessels.

The 350 million Kenyan shillings ($3.4 million) terminal is being constructed under joint funding by the Kenya government and a private firm, Trade Mark East Africa.
