Shimba is only half an hour drive from Diani beach and maybe a hour from Mombasa town. The park is popular for being the only home for the rare Sable antelopes, rain forests, beautiful landscape and the Shedrick Falls. There are elephants, giraffes, buffaloes, Thomson gazelles, Warthogs and and a large variety of birds and butterflies.
Shedrick falls is 2kms down from the view-point, and 2km up. You need to be physically fit to descend and ascend the challenging hill walk. A game ranger always escorts tourists for safety from the wild animals.
Shimba lodge is uniquely built in the middle of the jungle. Lunch is so refreshing after a game drive. An over night in the lodge would give it a memorable experience.
