Bamburi // is located in the Kisauni-division of the coastal Mombasa County, Kenya, north-east of Mombasa Island. It is an area of tourism, and as such has many beach-front hotels.
Bamburi is the location of Bamburi Cement, the East African division of Lafarge Eco Systems.
In 1971, Rene Haller transformed parts of the cement- and quarry-complex into a Haller Park nature reserve. The 11 km2 area holds a variety of native game, and (prior to 2007) the highly covered attraction of Owen and Mzee - the friendship of a hippopotamus and a tortoise.
Bamburi is reached by bus or matatu from Mombasa island en route to Mtwapa or Malindi. Terminal matatus serve the Bamburi Cement complex
