SHIMBA HILLS BIRDING TOUR
Our Shimba Hills Birding Tour visits one of the best birding spots in Coastal Kenya, the magical Shimba Hills National Reserve.
Shimba Hills, a local protected area within the coast region, is one of the best spots in the Kenyan southern tip. This area is famous for hosting the Sable Antelope, one of the most beautiful ungulates in Kenya. This park combines a good habitat as an extension from Kenya and Northern Tanzania, thus offering a good pool mix of birds species.
We shall leave early to enjoy enough time in the forest. In the evening, we shall return to the hotel, marking the end to our lovely Shimba Hills Birding Tour.
