1-day-shimba

Pick-up at 8:30 am and driven to Shimba hills National park for game viewing with a guided walk to the shedrick falls. Shimba Hills National Reserve is a small National Park in the Coast Province of Kenya, 40 km from Mombasa and 25 km from Diani. The reserve is an area of coastal rainforest, woodland and grassland. It is an important area for plant biodiversity – over 50% of the 159 rare plants in Kenya are found in the Shimba Hills, including some endangered species of cycad and orchids.

It is also an important site for birds and butterflies. There are estimated to be approximately 700 elephants in the reserve. This population is unsustainably high – it causes significant damage to vegetation, threatening the endangered plant life.

Conflict between humans and elephants has also reached critical levels. North of the Reserve, the Mwaluganje elephant sanctuary has been established to provide a route for elephants to leave the park. The remainder of the park boundary is fenced to prevent the elephants from invading farmland. Shimba Hills contains Kenya’s only population of Sable Antelopes and Buffaloes. There are about 100 here.Then proceed to KUTAZAMA for the best view of the landscape. Lunch at Shimba Lodge the only tree hotel at the coast. After lunch you will proceed with game drive untill late afternoon then drive back to Hotel/Residence arriving around 6 or 6.30pm.
