Shimba Hills Day Safari

Shimba Hills is perfect for those who want to sample a day on safari and this full day tour includes a game drive and lunch at Shimba Hills Lodge. Set on stilts above a waterhole it's the perfect vantage point to see some wildlife up close. Don't forget your camera and binoculars.

Tour includes:

  • Game viewing
  • Bird watching
  • Lunch

Pick up after an early breakfast at your hotel and drive up the beautiful and scenic Shimba Hills, climbing from an altitude of nearly 1,500 feet above sea level in a matter of half an hour. Shimba Hills National Reserve with its forests and hills is home to a varied animal species that reside in this beautiful reserve. Elephant, Buffalo, Sable antelope (Shimba is the only area in the whole of East Africa where this antelope is found), bushbuck, waterbuck, giraffe, spotted hyena, warthogs, baboon and over 200 bird species. 

Lunch is served at Shimba Hills Tree Lodge, hidden in thick rainforest and overlooking a waterhole which is often visited by elephants and other animals coming down to drink.

After lunch take a walk on the wooden walkway that extends 120 m into the tropical rainforest, at the end of which is a birdwatchers look-out. Leave the lodge again for a second game drive in the National Reserve, also visiting the two 'view points' with their spectacular and breathtaking views of the coastline and its tiny islands south of Mombasa. Return to your Mombasa beach hotel in time for dinner.
