"Echoes of Shimba" - 2 Days Shimba Hills



Managed by the owners of the famous “Tree Tops Lodge” in Aberdare National Park, Shimba Lodge  is the only tree tops hotel on the coast.

We depart from your hotel in the early afternoon to the cool rainforest of Shimba Hills National Reserve, followed by a PM game drive before checking in at the forest lodge. Coming up next, is a fabulous dinner under candle and moonlight, overlooking the vibrant waterhole. Here you will find wildlife bustling all around you while you wine and dine: African Fish Eagles amongst a vast variety of Birdlife, Monitor lizards, on occasions Elephants and Bushbucks, and last but not least- the lesser Galagos that come to your dining table to say Jambo! Several other resident/transient species have been spotted in and around the lodge.

After a beautiful rest under the stars accompanied by sounds of crickets and other nightly residents- at sunrise the next morning, get set for an early AM game drive. There is high possibility to view large herds of Buffalos, Birds, Elephants, Giraffes, Heartbeast, Warthogs, and the famous Sable Antelopes which are only found in Shimba Hills and South Africa.

10.00 AM: Mini-trek accompanied by Ranger, to the famous and luscious Sheldrick Falls. After this refreshing walk, you will be driven back to the lodge for a scrumptious lunch.

Post lunch, you will be taken back to your hotel in Diani Beach/Mombasa.
