JOYS CAMP IS CURRENTLY CLOSED. Shaba National Park is probably one of the least known in Kenya...and long may it remain that way! Joy's was completed in 2007 and is a stunning, semi tented camp set on the fringes of a small lagoon complex. The park is relatively small in size, but has a whole range of different habitats to keep the traveller interested, with striped hyena being a particular favourite. With a reasonable price tag these days, Joy's is probably one of our top 10 in Kenya.
One of our favourite camps in the Samburu, Sasaab looks down across the winding Easo Nyiro River where you can often see Elephants drinking. The camp itself is situated outside of the Samburu National Reserve which gives it an added air of privacy, although does mean that you have to drive half an hour to get to the areas of ‘good’ game viewing.
