Arabuko Sokoke Forest reserve is the largest remaining track of indigenous coastal forest remaining in East Africa and contains an unusually high concentration of rare species especially birds (around 240 species) butterflies (around 260 species) and mammals (around 37 species).
The Clarke’s Weaver is found nowhere else in the world and the Sokoke Scops Owl only live here and in Usambara Mountains in Tanzania.
The east coast akalat, sokoke pipit, spotted ground thrush and amani sunbird are other rarities. As for mammals the adder’s duiker, the sokoke bushy tailed mongoose and the wonderful golden-rumped elephant shrew are species largely found here. You may see elephants as well.
