Visit the Shimba Hills Nature Reserve with us and discover the little paradise in the midst of the lush nature of the Shimba Hills Lodge! A special experience especially for children! This excursion offers an interesting change to the beach vacation for young and old because of the short distance to the coast of Kenya !! Only a stone’s throw away from the coast of Kenya lies this hidden spot for many guests, at whose sight “The green hills of Africa” by Ernest Hemingway come to mind. Game drives in the reserve and the idyllic view from the rustic tree lodge allow you to observe fish-eared eagle-headed carrots, Varans, gazelles, buffalos, giraffes, waterbucks and other wild animals.
With a little luck, you will discover the famous sable antelopes, which are found only here in Kenya! Accompanied by an armed ranger, hike to the hidden Sheldrick Waterfall!
Pick up at 1pm at noon at your beach hotel. We drive to the Shimba Hills National Park. Along the way, the coastal landscape changes from tropical vegetation to the hills and valleys of the Shimba Hills. We pass the park entrance and embark on the first game drive. The park is home to many birds, but also wildlife. We spend the afternoon here and enjoy nature. Also the footstep to the Sheldrick Falls stands with interest on the program.
When booking the day trip, we will then drive you back to your accommodation on the coast.
Overnight at the Shimba Hills Lodge:
In the early evening, arrive at Shimba Hills Lodge at your accommodation.
In the middle of the dense green of the forest, directly at a clearing with a fantastic view of the waterhole, you feel like in a fairy tale!
Built entirely of solid wood and built perfectly between the trees, this tree lodge has been recently renovated. Tasteful African decorations complete the beautiful ambience. From all the beautiful rooms, the spacious restaurant area and the bar you can enjoy the spectacular view of the natural setting of the forest clearing. Impressive!
Over a wooden walkway you can walk high up under trees a bit in the green nature and is the unique idyll very close!
The excellent cuisine will spoil you with culinary delights! Cute bush babies often come closer curious. The nice day ends with a cool drink. The night sounds of the forest lull you to sleep.
Early in the morning we start with a first game drive to discover even more of the wildlife in the park. Back at the lodge, have breakfast and then do a walk in the area around the lodge.
Again you have the opportunity to discover and photograph animals in the green area. We head for special viewpoints with stunning views of the Tsavo National Park or the Indian Ocean in the distance.
After a first-class lunch at Shimba Hills Lodge we will then bring you back to your accommodation on the coast.
