Discover Haller Park

If you've never had the chance to look around a nature reserve before landing in Mombasa, you'll be able to come face to face with a wide range of species in Haller Park, located on the old site of the Lafarge factory, a cement manufacturer. When the factory closed in 1971, René Haller started a reforestation project in order to reintroduce some species and clear the way for nature to make a return to the site of 185 acres. As well as various bird species, you'll be able to spot giraffes, hippopotamuses as well as many monkeys - marmosets in particular - that roam freely in the park.
