Bamburi Cement

Bamburi is the location of Bamburi Cement, the East African division of Lafarge Eco Systems.

Haller Park

Entrance to Haller Park.

In 1971, Rene Haller transformed parts of the cement- and quarry-complex into a Haller Park nature reserve.[1] The 11 km2 area holds a variety of native game, and (prior to 2007) the highly covered attraction of Owen and Mzee - the friendship of a hippopotamus and a tortoise.

Transport

Bamburi is reached by bus or matatu from Mombasa island en route to Mtwapa or Malindi. Terminal matatus serve the Bamburi Cement complex[2]
