Overview Desciption

You can not miss this!
During the safari in Shimba Hills National Park there are some highlights that you should not miss! Think of the Sheldrick waterfall. This is a very majestic waterfall of 25 meters high. During the rainy season you will see one waterfall, but in the warmer months the waterfall splits into 2 streams. The climate is warm and humid, but not as hot as in the other parks. A lovely refreshing dip is therefore highly recommended!
The Mwele Mdogo Forest is a densely forested rainforest. This rainforest served as a military camp and lookout during the British colonization of Kenya. Now you can see many beautiful species of butterflies and birds here.
Mwanluganje Forest is also a rainforest where an elephant sanctuary is located. The rainforest has an area of ??32m2. The elephant sanctuary was specially set up in 1933 to combat deforestation, protect native trees, and ensure that human-animal conflicts were minimized. Besides elephants you can also see many birds and different tree species here.
