The Shimba Hills Lodge is the only ‘tree lodge’ within Kenya’s Coastal rain forest. An award winning design when built in 1986, it was commissioned as a coastal alternative to the famous Tree Tops. Throughout its construction emphasis was upon natural materials with cedar wood dominating resulting in a warm and relaxing interior.
The spacious suites are as perfect for honeymooners as for families. The comfortable living room allows you to relax after a game drive, that’s unless you decide to have your sundowner on the balcony within the trees overlooking the waterhole. The African design, adjusted to modern standards, will make you feel at home but with a touch of added adventure.
