Wildlife HighlightsWildlife Highlights

Shimba Hills National Reserve Shimba Hills National Reserve thrust nearly 450 meters out of the coastal plain, an enchanting other world, lonely and remote from the heat below. The Hills are about 1 hour away and although not significantly higher than the coastal beaches, they are remarkably cool; breezes from the Indian Ocean rise over the eastern escarpment with invigorating freshness. Full Day Snorkeling Excursion for Marine Wildlife The 28 square km Kisite-Mpunguti Marine Park is reputed to be the most beautiful marine park after the Great Barrier Reef of Australia and is the best in Kenya in terms of species diversity, coral quality and reef build-up. The warm, pristine waters are host to dramatic coral formations, dolphins, turtles, sting rays, moray eels and a bewildering variety of sea life that comprise a unique eco-system that could be referred to as a garden under the sea. Run by Selina and Harm who are Marine Biologist and PADI Diving Instructors, who take limited numbers to offer you a more personal service.
