Said to be home to Kenya's last breeding herd of sable antelope, this is one of the country's lesser-known parks with a diverse ecosystem that incorporates belts of coastal rainforest and good animal diversity. Particularly healthy pachyderm numbers have spawned the creation of the community-owned Mwaluganje Elephant Sanctuary, where you're guaranteed to see plentiful herds among the gorgeous cycad forests; it is currently home to the highest density of elephants in the country, and probably all of Africa. The Reserve is a good bet if you want to see animals but are no longer interested in feeling the great strain to chase down lion, leopard, or cheetah and are looking for a more laid-back interaction with nature.
