Tour to Haller Park information
The Haller Park is located on the north coast of Kenya, near Bamburi.
The Haller Park is formerly known as Bamburi Quarry Nature Trail, and named after the founder, Dr. Haller Rene, who transformed it from a quarry to one of the best wildlife parks in Mombasa.
He started in 1971 with vision to convert barren landscape of disused limestone quarries into vibrant and diverse ecosystem of forest, grasslands and ponds.
The Park was the first recipient to be honoured with the United Nations Environmental Program Global 500 Roll of Honour award for the unique, ecologically sound and successful rehabilitation undertaken.

The 4km long natural trial invites the visitors to explore fascinating landscapes of empty quarries to lush forests, lakes, streams, palm grooves and plantations of indigenous trees.
The diversity of vegetation is considerable, from mangrove palms and majestic indigenous shade trees to coastal forests where several of these plants are rare and endangered.
Haller park features four nature routes in the forest trails for cycling, jogging, walking and fitness. You can also enjoy guided tour in the butterfly breeding house and pavilion which is home to more than 16 different species of colorful butterflies!
