Set high in the hills above the South Coast, this small Park is best known for the rare Sable antelope which graze in the rolling hills. Elephant live in the pockets of rainforest and giraffe, zebra and ostrich (all introduced in recent years) may be seen. There are a great variety of birds and butterflies as well. The air at this elevation is clean and cool and it is a beautiful destination to take a break from the hot and steamy temperatures of the coast.
Morning pickup from your hotel and drive to Shimba Hills, starting with a short game drive in the park proceeding to the Sheldrick Falls. Deep in the river valley of the National Reserve is the spectacular 82 foot Sheldrick falls with a natural plunge pool. A shower in the cool clean waters of the falls or a dip in the pool is quite refreshing after the walk. The walk up from Sheldrick Falls can be taxing for the elderly and should only be undertaken by clients who are physically fit. Clients who prefer to give the walk a miss, will proceed on a short game drive. After the walk, a game drive in the park proceeding to the Lodge for a late lunch. Afternoon relax at the Camp and enjoy a spectacular African sunset sinking behind the serene silhouette of the Usambara Mountains in neighboring Tanzania. Below in the Mwaluganje Elephant Santuary, one can spot elephants at a distance.
Evening return to your hotels.
