Shaba Game Reserve

Neighbouring the beautiful Samburu National Park in Kenya, Shaba National Reserve features the extinct volcano of Mount Shaba rising up from the plains. The reserve also served as one of the homes of the famous lioness from the ‘Born Free’ novel. This arid area is fed by the waters of the Ewaso Ngiro River which sustain a variety of wildlife species including: the generuk, Somali ostrich, reticulated giraffe and Grevy’s zebras. The landscape features a unique combination of riverine forests and volcanic rocky outcrops. Visitors can enjoy excellent game viewing, fascinating Samburu village tours and visit the Joy Adamson Museum.

Overnight: Sarova Shaba Game Lodge

Deep in the arid northern part of Kenya, situated across the Great North Road, is Shaba National Reserve which forms part of a trio of reserves quite different from the ones found in Kenya. Shaba takes its name from Mount Shaba (1525 metres), a volcanic mountain that became extinct around 5,000 years ago and lies on the border of the reserve.

In the middle of this desert of volcanic earth lies Sarova Shaba Game Lodge; Kenya’s best kept secret. Built in an oasis around the natural terrain of this breathtaking volcanic desert, the Lodge is attractively laid out with chalet style rooms overlooking the Ewaso Nyiro River. Natural spring water has been harnessed to ribbon its way in and out all around the property creating a beautiful landscape. Coupled with the large free-form swimming pool that flows around the lush gardens and tall trees, all this refreshing water lends an almost magical feel to this natural oasis.

Sarova Shaba Game Lodge offers a unique experience that extends beyond game drives in the reserve. The lodge has a plethora of activities to indulge in, from bird watching to camel safaris, the viewing deck along the river, and feeding and watching crocodiles, making it a destination in itself.

On August 26, 2011, Sarova Shaba Game Lodge became the first game lodge within Shaba, Samburu and Buffalo Springs National Reserves to be connected to the national electricity grid. Sarova Shaba Game Lodge previously ran on a diesel-powered generator.

This is a magical corner, where there is close contact with the essence that tells of unexplored Africa, and where, very often, the visitor may enjoy in solitary state the beauty of it all.”
