Hills National Reserve is just 33km (20 miles) south of Mombasa.
It was created as a national forest in 1903 and is now one of
the largest areas of coastal rainforest in East Africa covering
24,000 hectares. Shimba Hills National Reserve is known for its
forested landscape, sharp slopes and steep valleys.
Shimba Hills National Reserve has the last breeding herd of
beautiful sable antelope in Kenya. They are among Kenya's
largest antelope, with black coats and long, scimitar-shaped
horns, which they were hunted for. They may be seen grazing
early or late in the day. In addition to the sable antelopes,
elephants, buffalo, waterbucks, hyenas, warthogs, leopards,
baboons and monkeys. Maasai giraffes and ostriches can be seen
in Shimba Hills National Reserve.
