Remember the dhows, there were still a number of them there in 68. Mombasa was their turnaround port and had been for ages. And there were obviously a lot of Arabic influence to be seen.
There was a guard/ticket seller at the entrance when I and a few others visited Fort Jesus, he was asleep when we entered, but woke up when we was about to leave - and made quite a funny song and dance act in demand we pay him.
