Shimba Hills

Shimba hills is a national reserve located just 33 km from Mombasa. It is an area of coastal rainforests, a place with many rare plants and countless birds. Shimba hills are also known for their high concentration of elephants and the occurrence of the rare Sable antelope.
We recommend the trip especially to tourists who are interested in one-day safari trip and do not want to spend time in a car on the way to the parks. As it is a rainforest, observing animals in lush vegetation is very interesting and unique.

1. day

Shimba Hills

Early in the morning you will set off for the Shimba Hills. Our driver will pick you up between 7:00 - 7:30. The departure depends on the current traffic situation and the location of your hotel. We will agree on the exact time when to pick you up and confirm it a day before the trip.

On the way to the Shimba Hills you will go through villages where you will find wonderful views and see the way of life of the indigenous people.

In the park, you will follow in the footsteps of the rare Sable antelopes which live only in this coastal tropical rainforest. These animals are worth seeing, as are the herds of large elephants, monkeys (guereza), giraffes, warthogs and buffaloes.

You will walk to the beautiful Sheldrick Waterfall where you can swim or enjoy a cool high-pressure shower under the waterfall.

Lunch can be enjoyed at Shimba Hills Lodge located in the middle of a tropical rainforest. This lodge is an amazing wooden tree house overlooking the watering hole for the animals.

After lunch, you will head out to the park for the afternoon. Afterwards our driver will take you back to your hotel.
