Tur Operatoru: Victoria Safaris - Nairobi, Kenya
You will be met by our tour manager in Mombasa who will brief you on your safari and then hand you over to the tour guide. You will depart for Shimba Hills for a game viewing safari. Please note that Sheldricks Falls is within Shimba Hills and you will visit the falls among other attractions in the Park. You will have lunch at the Shimba Hills Lodge or similar.
Shimba Hills. The wide grasslands, hills and valleys and thick rainforests of the Shimba Hills National Reserve are a sharp contrast to the arid, flat plains of many other of the Kenyan parks. Much of the Reserve has beautiful views over the Indian Ocean, as Shimba Hills lies less than 50 Kms from Kenya's coast. In spite of this proximity to the ocean, it lacks the coastal region's tropical climate; at up to 500m above sea-level, the air is cool and refreshing.
Elephant, giraffe and buffalo all live in this tranquil spot, along with rare roan and sable antelope, black and white colobus monkeys, warthogs, and serval cats. Bird lovers can spot a wealth of species, including woodpeckers, sunbirds, honey guides and turacos. The area is also botanically rich, with two of most beautiful types of orchid in Kenya found here, and more than 250 different species of butterflies live in the rainforest. Also found within the forest are the spectacular Sheldrick Falls, which are over 25m high.
The Shimba Hills are home to the Mijikenda, including members of the Giriama, Duruma and Digo tribes. Central to these peoples' fascinating culture are Kayas -elevated forest glades that once held sacred objects -and two of these are located within the Reserve.
