The Arabuko Sokoke Forest Reserve near the Malindi and Watamu Reserves and Parks is the largest surviving coastal dry forest in East Africa. The forest provides important habitat for its unique and endangered birds, insects and animals.

Game to view includes: the extremely rare Arders Duiker, the rare Golden-Rumped Elephant Shrew as well as the Sokoke Scops Owl, Clarkes Weaver, African pitta, sokoke pipit, green barbet, nicator, amani sunbird, scaly babbler and other rare birds, plus over 80 species of butterfly.

Guided walks through the forest can be arranged for interested small groups.

The Reserve has no accommodation facilities, but there are many at the nearby Watamu and Malindi.
