Tour overview

Haller Park is a nature park in Bamburi, Mombasa, on the Kenyan coast. It is the transformation of a quarry wasteland into an ecological area. Haller Park holds a variety of plant and animal species which serve as a recreation spot for tourists and locals. The recreation ground is a haven for the botanist. It features a diversity of vegetation, from mangrove palms to coastal forests where such plants are rare and endangered. Each plant plays a vital role in harmonizing the ecosystem.

Haller Park nature Trail started as a cement factory in 1954. The factory obtained its raw materials from the quarry, a fossil coral limestone reef that lived 125,000 to 250,000 years ago. A variety of game animals and birds, which are not so easy to see, inhabit the fenced area. Each has a function in Nature Trail’s ecosystem, and almost all of them utilize a different feeding ecosystem.
