Just back from Kenya and Shimba Hills .
As the park is mainly forest, game is not easy to see but sure you can see
Sable antilopes ,
girafe , buffalo and elephants .
We saw also the beautiful Ross turaco ( blue and red ) and other birds .

Probably going back to Diani for some R&R, and hoping to go to the
Hills park up the road.
Has anyone got any useful info or experiences of this park?

can do better booking ahead.
Is it better to stay in the lodge, or camping?
Thanks for any info.
