Whenever you hear of Mombasa the first thing that pops into your mind is white sandy beaches and clear blue skies, right?
Well I will tell you right now that there is a lot more to that quaint little town than that… Mombasa has so much to offer in terms of culture, food and surprisingly, nature!
My sister and I were in Mombasa for vacation this August and one lovely sunny afternoon we decided to visit an animal sancturay about a 15 minutes drive from home.I had heard so much about the place that I had to experience for myself. It is called Nguuni Nature Sanctuary, located 4km from Lafarge Bamburi Cement on the Nguu Tatu Hills; the amazing sanctuary is the home to many species. Including Giraffes, elands, oryx, waterbucks, ostriches and many species of birds have made Nguuni their home. Large Doum Palm crowned by Leopard Orchids are scattered in the grassland.
Ps. If you’re not a scaredy cat myself, try hand feeding the giraffes. It’s allowed!
Below are some pictures,
