Join Safari Joe on a fabulous Shimba Hills Safari Day Trip to the beautiful Shimba Hills National Reserve in Kenya. As well as games drives in this lovely little park, our full day itinerary includes a Waterfall Walk to the stunning Sheldrick Falls as well as taking the roads less travelled through the rural villages to get home, all in 4x4 Safari Style with a top guide!

Shimba Hills Safari Day Trip - After breakfast we will pick you up from your accommodation at 6.30 a.m. and drive up to Shimba Hills National Reserve (45 min). On our drive we pass cashew nut and palm tree plantations, you will also get an insight into the lifestyle of the local people.

Game viewing will begin as soon as you enter Shimba Hills, Kenya's last remaining habitat of the rare Sable Antelope (endemic to this reserve). The reserve is also home to elephants, buffalo, black and white Colobus monkeys, leopard, bush babies and a variety of birds, flora and fauna.

At 11.00 a.m. you can visit the Sheldrick Waterfall on foot (escorted by a KWS game ranger) – a 45 minute gentle hike downhill through tropical rainforest takes you to the breathtaking waterfall. Enjoy as the cool water cascades down the 30m high cliff and forms a natural pool. This is a physical exercise; a moderate level of fitness is required and sturdy walking shoes.

Lunch will be waiting for you once you hike back up to the top of the trail, you will then take a short break in the shade and enjoy a delicious picnic lunch with spectacular views overlooking the park right to the Indian Ocean.

After a rest we head out for another game drive until about 4.00 pm where you will depart from Shimba Hills; on the drive home we take the road less travelled passing by rural villages, we take a short break in the village for a cold drink, before we drive back to your accommodation arriving at around 5.30 pm Throughout the day your guide will share with you his knowledge and stories of wildlife, culture and life in Kenya.
