Haller Park,Mombasa

Our travel journey started a long time ago and It’s no secret that we’ve always had a deeper love affair with nature and wildlife. A while back we were at the coast and we visited Haller Park. Known to some as the “green” quarry,this park has been reborn to a small private ecological nature sanctuary. Situated on the North Coast of Mombasa along the Mombasa Malindi road, next to the Bamburi Cement factory, Haller park is a beauty of nature.

The diverse vegetation is considerable, from mangrove palms and majestic indigenous shade trees to coastal forests where several of these plants are rare and endangered; a haven for botanist.Visitors can enjoy a quiet nature trail or even a jungle jog for the fit enthusiasts.

The main attractions of the park are the Reptile Park with a rich variety of snake species,  crocodile farm,small fish pond,game sanctuary and the butterfly pavilion .
