Shimba Hills

The Shimba Hills National Reserve is located just 48 kms from the coast, but at 500 metres they make a cool change from the tropical coastal climate. The reserve is made up of both open grassland and dense rainforest, all with stunning views across the Indian Ocean.

The Reserve has a variety of species including Elephant, Giraffe and Buffalo as well as the rare Roan and Sable antelope. The forests are home to a number of unusual species including the Black and White Colobus, Serval cats, Red Duiker and Suni Antelope.

An abundance of birdlife lives is found among the hills, including Honey guides, Turacos, woodpeckers and Sunbirds.

The Shimba Hills are a natural and peaceful haven, easily accessed from the beaches of the Kenyan coast....
