On the coast of Kenya, Arabuko-Sokoke National Park is a beautiful slice of a protected forest reserve. Lying around 100 km north of Mombassa, this is the largest surviving area of coastal forest in East Africa and an important monument to a disappearing environment. The park itself is a tiny 6 km2 but contains three ancient types of forest, each protecting hundreds of different endemic and rare species of wildlife for a fantastic safari experience.
