Shimba Hills Lodge - Shimba Hills National Reserve

A coastal ‘Treetops’ Lodge, the Shimba Hills Lodge is one of the most atmospheric tree hotels in Kenya offering luxury facilities and unique day and night wildlife viewing. Faced in pitch-dark timber the lodge is built to resemble a tree house and is picturesquely located deep in a forest glade and surrounded by ancient cycad palms, liana-hung hardwoods and rare forest blooms. There are also a number of nature walks and game drives to be enjoyed. Shimba Hills is one of the few places in all of Kenya’s National Reserves from which guests can experience the wilderness on foot.

Shimba Hills Lodge is in the Shimba Hills National Reserve, which lies just beyond Wa, which is a small town in the hills behind the coast – 35 kms (45 minute’s drive) from Mombasa.

Accommodation at the Shimba Hills Lodge

Shimba Hills Lodge can accommodate up to 65 guests. All rooms have balconies facing the water hole. The rooms, although small, are light and cheerful with big windows. Most rooms share communal bathroom facilities; two suites are self-contained. There are two self-contained suites, 24 doubles and five triples (ceiling fans, mosquito nets).

Dining at the Shimba Hills Tree Lodge

The open fronted dining room allows unrestricted game and bird viewing at all times, and an elevated walkway extending well into the forest gives peace seeking visitors a few rare moments alone with nature. There are three bar areas, the most unique being the Jungle Bar, which is at the end of a long winding wooden walkway. At night floodlights illuminate the waterhole.

Activities at the Shimba Hills Tree Lodge

The lodge overlooks a waterhole and is a bird- and animal-watcher’s paradise. Dramatic black and white colobus monkeys, herds of elephant and graceful giraffes are often seen at Shimba. A wooden walkway extending 120 m into the forest leads to a viewing spot that allows for the unobtrusive viewing of birds and butterflies. Other adventures include a visit to Sheldrick Falls, or an evening game drive followed by a walk through the forest that ends with drinks and snacks in a glade.
