5 Reasons Why You Should Visit Shimba Hills National Reserve

Unveiling a Paradise: Visit Shimba Hills National Reserve with EDDIE MORS African Tours and Safaris

Kenya, the land of breathtaking safaris and vibrant cultures, beckons the adventurer within. But beyond the vast plains of the Maasai Mara and the iconic silhouette of Mount Kilimanjaro lies a hidden gem – the Shimba Hills National Reserve. This captivating sanctuary, often overshadowed by its more prominent counterparts, offers a unique and unforgettable experience for discerning travelers.

1. A Tapestry of Landscapes

Imagine lush, emerald forests cascading down rolling hills, their secrets whispered by the wind. Envision crystal-clear waterfalls cascading into hidden pools, creating a symphony of sound and light. Picture dramatic viewpoints offering panoramic vistas that stretch towards the shimmering Indian Ocean. This is the magic that awaits you when you visit Shimba Hills.

Unlike the savannas of Kenya, Shimba Hills boasts a diverse range of ecosystems. Explore the cool, refreshing canopy of the largest coastal forest in East Africa. Hike through woodlands teeming with life, or venture into pockets of grasslands where the sun paints the landscape in warm hues. This variety ensures a captivating exploration, with every turn revealing a new wonder.

2. A Haven for Wildlife

The Shimba Hills are not just a feast for the eyes; they are a haven for a fascinating array of wildlife. Here, gentle giants roam – the Shimba Hills boasts a number of African elephants in Kenya. While sightings are not guaranteed due to the dense forest, witnessing these magnificent creatures as they graze peacefully amidst the verdant expanse is an unforgettable experience. For a better elephants sighting, we highly recommend Tsavo National Park. Keep your eyes peeled for the elusive sable antelope, with their majestic horns and sleek black coats, a sight exclusive to the Shimba Hills in Kenya. You are also likely to see a herd of buffaloes, a tower of giraffes and gazelles/impalas when you visit Shimba Hills. On very rare cases, you might see a leopard but it is a very elusive cat.

Birdwatchers, rejoice! Over 500 species of birds call this reserve home. Listen to the lively symphony of colorful birds flitting through the trees, from the majestic African crowned eagle to the vibrant Narina Trogon. Spot shy owls perched on branches, or watch as flocks of colorful birds take flight, painting the sky with a kaleidoscope of hues.

But the magic extends beyond the large mammals and winged wonders. Look out for the adorable antics of the coastal black and white colobus monkeys swinging through the trees. Be mesmerized by the flash of a brightly colored butterfly, or encounter the fascinating elephant shrew, a unique mammal native to Africa.

3. A Paradise for Adventure

The Shimba Hills is not just a place to observe; it is a place to experience. Lace up your hiking boots and embark on guided nature walks through the verdant wilderness. Feel the thrill of discovery as you explore hidden trails and encounter the park’s diverse inhabitants.

4. Unwind and Reflect

After a day of exploration, unwind at one of the park’s scenic viewpoints. Watch the golden light bathe the landscape in a warm glow as the sun dips below the horizon. Breathe in the fresh air, listen to the sounds of the forest, and let the tranquility of the Shimba Hills wash over you. You may choose to relax by the infinity pool in one of the lodges at the Shimba Hills.
