shimba hills day safari

Shimba Hills is a small game reserve 47km from Diani Beach, it is about 1 hours’ drive from most of the beach resorts. It is famous for the Sable Antelope found only in this park. Shimba hills is a rainforest with spectacular view, but there are no cats (lions, cheetahs) in this game reserve. Other animals that can be found in the park are Giraffes, Buffaloes, elephants, warthogs, antelopes, monkeys, baboons, It is important to note that the shimba safari is normally a relaxing trip and not a place for a person looking for a proper safari with lots of animals. The nature of the game reserve is rain forest and hence it can get difficult to spot animals.
