...a hidden gem...

Shaba lies alongside Samburu and Buffalo Springs Reserves on the edge of the semi-deserts of northern Kenya. Shaba is a place of breathtaking beauty, made famous by Joy Adamson and her leopard.

Here you will see dry-country animals such as the reticulated giraffe, Grevy’s zebra, gerenuk and oryx. The elephants here can be incredible. The palm-fringed Ewaso Nyiro River borders the reserve and is a magnet for game.

You can climb Ol Lolokwe or Shaba Mountain, walk through gorges and visit the Boran people, who use a human chain to lift water from deep wells for thousands of cattle and camels.

Nearby is an extinct volcanic crater containing a soda lake where Meru people collect salt using evaporation pans just as they have done for thousand of years.

We recommend our Private Luxury Mobile as the best way to experience Shaba.
