1 Day Shimba Hills: KABS016

Our Safari driver/guide will pick you up and drive you for about 45mins to Shimba Hills National Reserve departing from Diani Beach and other South Coast hotels, from Mombasa the drive is 1.30 minutes.

Shimba Hills National Reserve is hilly and forested, varying in altitude from 100 m/330 ft to 450 m/1,475 ft above sea level. On this 1 day Shimba Hills safari you may see one of the most beautiful antelopes, the sable antelope. It's the only sable population in Kenya. You may also see elephants, giraffes, buffalos and other antelopes, as well as ostriches and eagles. The butterflies are plentiful. The big African cats are represented by the leopard, but it is rarely seen, as the rich vegetation is perfect for this secretive cat to hide in. There are also serval cats and hyenas.

You will also visit the Sheldrick falls, which is a short walk through the park - under the falls you can take a cold shower of 25 meters high, swim safely in the cool water pool or even have a picnic by the cascades on sand. The level of the pool depends of the season : during rain season, you can easily swim in the pool and there is one fall; during dry season, the pool is tiny and there are two spring water falls. Afterwards proceed for lunch at the Shimba Hills Tree Lodge. Relax after lunch then go for the afternoon game drive. You leave the park at around 4.00pm to arrive at you hotel around 5.00pm.
