A gift from Gaddafi, this mosque. The mosque is super huge, it’s the second largest mosque in Africa! It can accomodate 15,000 worshipers under its copper-plated domes and has a central location in the city. The large prayer room is not very special, but the 360 degrees view from the minaret is breathtaking. A tour takes an hour and costs about 15.000 shilling (2018).
The 'pearl of Africa' is a dream destination for nature lovers. Beautiful volcanoes, vast savannas, great national parks, stunning waterfalls and tropical rainforests. And the most friendly people!
