Joy's Camp

Joy’s camp officially opened on August 2006!

The new Joy's Camp will be ready by 21st of July 2006

Situated at Joy Adamson’s original campsite in Shaba National Reserve, the place where she released her famous leopard “Penny”, these luxury tents are set on raised platforms with breathtaking views of the surrounding hills of Bodich, Shaba Hill. The camp overlooks a large natural spring allowing continuous game viewing. It is home to resident buffalo, waterbuck and a regular watering hole for the large number of elephant passing. Each sumptuous tent is uniquely decorated with Bedouin-Somali cloth design, creating a chic, sophisticated and stylish camp enjoying it’s own private deck, ideal for private game viewing, relaxing, reading and soaking up the truly wild environs offered by Shaba. Joy’s Camp is the perfect choice for discerning guests interested in a glimpse of Kenyan history, as well as those looking for an authentic wildlife experience combined with the comfort of a luxury-tented camp. 

Location

Joy’s Camp is situated in Shaba National Reserve, which is 314kms from Nairobi. Shaba National Reserve is a semi desert with a rugged hilly terrain, with great rocky kopjes (small hills) and lots of springs supporting the abundant wildlife. The landscape is similar to nearby Samburu with riverine forests, acacias and doum palms.

Shaba National Reserve was made famous for its association with the world famous conservationists Joy and George Adamson and the film “ Born Free”.

Accommodation

Each sumptuous 100 sq mtr. tent is uniquely decorated with Boran/Somali cloth design, handmade glass and the vibrant fabrics of the local nomadic tribes creating a chic, sophisticated and stylish camp. Each tent has it’s own private deck, ideal for private game viewing as well as relaxing, reading and soaking up the truly wild environs offered by Shaba. The eastern corner of the Samburu eco-system, Shaba is a secluded idyll; an arid landscape dotted with lush springs and rocky river gorges.
