The park is the last of the coastal rainforests and an important area of plant biodiversity
where rare plants in Kenya are found such as some endangered species of cycad and orchids. There is also a large number of elephants in the reserve as well as butterflies and birds. These elephant herds cause significant damage to vegetation, threatening the endangered plant life. Human-wildlife conflicts are also very high in this area. Due to this, an elephant sanctuary has been established to provide a route for elephants to leave the park. The park contains Kenya’s only population of the Sable antelope. Other attractions in this beautiful park include the scenic landscape comprising of hills and valleys and Sheldricks Falls.
