This place could be better but I think the management should be more innovative and involved. Most of the fixtures seemed quite old and worn out. At least a well groomed guide would be a plus.

Any place where you can sit and have a one hour long conversation with a giant turtle is more than all right by me! Feeding giraffes also a high point. !

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.

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.
