If you love birds just come with your pair of Binoculars and you will be amased on how many birds are around. If you are like me not knowing all by name, I allways carry my book so I know who I am watching.

I have been to Nguuni many times and I love the bandas, the "wild" feel and its serenity. The management does a good job of keeping the place clean and the facility is good for an afternoon out.with the family for play and Barbecue. The friendly giraffe, Ostrich and antelope found here add icing to the cake. Visit Nguuni and... More

A large number of bird species found in the sanctuary, combine it with a picknickwith the family and also excellent sundowner !! The advantage is the the sanctuary in not far from Mombasa city and especially the north coast accommodations/Mombasa malindi highway!! some peanuts with lemon tea during sundowner.

We arrived at the Sanctuary early Sunday morning and were initially taken on a tour by Oscar, a younger fellow who was still learning.

I'm not a birdwatcher myself (I... More

Beautiful place. Lots of good bird watching and many giraffes wandering about. The giraffe feeding stations are close to the viewing area so you get to stand right next to the wildlife! It's a basic setting but they have fire pits, shelters, toilets, sinks etc. plus a few stone/wood 'tables'. You can hire the venue out for an evening party... More
