This is only a brief and overall preview of what you can find in this green environment not far away from our resort.
Very close to the forest there is another site not to be lost: Gede.
This primordial forest is a sacred place for the locals and also the habitat of many wild species, some of which are endangered, such as the golden elephant shrew rump, a small mammal that is usually found in association with a bird, the robin.
Along the coastal road, in the south of Malindi and in the middle of the Arabuko Sokoke forest, lies one of those places surrounded by mystery and unanswered questions.
In fact, the city of Gede Swahili (or Gedi) is an enigma, as, despite the notoriety gained during its five centuries of history, there are no writings written about it.
The city was founded in the 12th century by the Swahili Arabs, who populated the coast and already established cities like Pate, Lamu and Malindi. The remains allow to conclude that the city, far from the sea and secluded in the coastal forest, was flourishing, rich and as large as Mombasa.
The place is also home to its own mythological animal, the local version of Bigfoot or Yeti: a supposedly Duba creature that looks like a huge sheep. What you should be careful about is a much smaller threat: siafu ants (siafu means only "ants" in Swahili), destructive insects that usually emerge from the ground after the rains.
