Shimba Hills National Reserve 2 Days 1 Night Mombasa Safari from Mombasa is a short wildlife vacation to Shimba Hills National Park located 50 km’s south of Mombasa town, in Kwale district of coast province.

This Kenya reserve is the only place where the rare Roan and Sable Antelopes can be sighted. The climate is hot and humid, with an average annual temperature of 24°C (75°F), but the area benefits from coastal breezes which also create mist in the mornings.

There are more than 600 elephants in the park and a fenced elephant corridor links the park with the elephant sanctuary at Mwaluganje Forest.

In addition to elephants, there are also buffalo, waterbucks, hyenas, warthogs, leopards, baboons and monkeys. Masai giraffes and ostriches have also been reintroduced to the park.

There are many birds, including 111 different recorded species. There are even more birds to be seen during the spring migration. Bird shooting is only permitted outside the reserve.

Some unique things to do at Shimba Hills National Park include taking a guided night drive. You may see leopards and cheetahs, and will certainly hear the hyenas howl in the eerie darkness. You can also buy a unique souvenir at the gates, a paper that is handmade from elephant dung!

African Spice Safaris can pick you from any beach property, airport or any pick up point within Mombasa (North Coast or South Coast) for an overnight or day trip to Shimba Lodge and drop you back.

This package is for clients seeking exciting wildlife activities while in Mombasa.
