Haller Park (formerly Bamburi Nature Trail) is located South of the Bamburi cement plant along the Mombasa/Malindi highway. Since 1971, the company has converted barren landscape of disused limestone quarries into vibrant and diverse ecosystem of forest, grasslands and ponds.
Currently, Haller Park plays host to a variety of wildlife including hippos, giraffes, buffalos, and antelopes as well as smaller mammals and birds.
The park consists of a game sanctuary, a reptile park, small demonstration fish farm area, a palm garden, crocodile pens and a giraffe viewing platform. Offering a variety of attractions , the park hosts several points aimed to educate and entertain the over 160,000 visitors who visit the park every year.
The diversity of vegetation is considerable: from mangrove palms and majestic indigenous shade trees to coastal forests where several of these plants are rare and endangered. A true haven for a botanist. Each plant plays an important role in the overall harmony of the ecosystem.
The park is also home to various animal species from the cheeky vervet monkeys to the graceful giraffe, weaver birds, kingfisher, storks, herons, egrets, owls, eagles, kites, cranes, ibis and sandpipers. The list is endless and Haller Park is definitely a must see visit for all bird lovers.
