is located in the Shimba Hills
area inland from the southern part of the Kenya Coast
The Shimba Hills is a small but ecologically interesting national park just inland from the beaches of the southern part of the Kenya coast. As well as a wide range of endemic flora and fauna, the area has good populations of elephants and giraffes.
Set on a dramatic ridge overlooking a protected elephant corridor to the north of the main reserve, this high specification retreat, is centred on beautifully presented public areas and a truly magnificent swimming pool. Guest accommodation is in just two lovely detached guest villas, both with lovely terraces and sweeping views.
Activities include wildlife viewing and walking in the surrounding areas, with elephants being the main attraction and the gentle assimilation of this beautiful area.
The main potential negatives are the difficulty in accessing and observing the wildlife in the area, the encroachment of human settlement around the reserve and the fact that, being so close to the busy Diani Beach area, there can be significant minibus traffic in core areas.
