Arabuko Sokoke Park Guide

Arabuko Sokoke National Park is located on the coast of Kenya, 110 kilometers north of Mombasa and it’s protected as it’s a National Forest Reserve.

The Park is situated at the northwestern edge of the Arabuko Sokoke Forest Reserve, only a few square kilometers in size and constitutes only a small portion of the latter.

The national park was gazetted in the late 1980s, in fact straddles the Forest Reserve Boundary worth about 50% lying outside an electric elephant fence which was installed in 2006 and now fully inhabited by local communities, the National Park doesn’t add any particular protection to the forest which is the largest fragment of coastal forest.

The forest reserve is jointly managed by Kenya Forest Service, Kenya wildlife service, National Museums of Kenya and the Kenya Foret Research Institute, the forest is threated by the desire for land by the local people, several national and international organizations are working with Kenya Wildlife Service to protect the park.

The Arabuko Sokoke Forest contains endemic mammals, birds, and plants, it contains three forest types, mixed forest, Brachystegia and Cynometra, each of which protects different communities of plants and animals.

The park is also known as an outstanding center of amphibian diversity.
