1 Day Shimba Hills & Mwaluganje Elephant Sanctuary

You will be collected from your hotel early in the morning at 7:00 am and drive 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 a nationally 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 here. North of the Reserve, is the Mwaluganje elephant sanctuary, this sanctuary was 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. There are about 100 here.

After the steep hike to the shedrick falls you will drive to Shimba lodge for lunch after lunch you will proceed further to Mwaluganje Elephant sanctuary for game drive in this reserve dominated by herds of Elephans and difrent species of birds., The major atractions here are elephants, Manolo river and the Jiwe La Masa (clock stone) which changes colour acording to the time of the day, then drive back to your coastal hotel, arriving in the evening.
