An elegant oasis in the spectacular arid landscapes of Samburu; Joy’s Camp is built on the site of Joy Adamson’s tented home in Shaba National Reserve. The camp overlooks a large natural spring where elephant and lion jostle for watering rights with herds of buffalo and the rare desert species of Beisa Oryx, reticulated giraffe and Grevy’s zebra.
The eastern corner of the Samburu eco-system, Shaba is a secluded idyll; which Joy’s Camp guests can enjoy as a private experience, out of the hustle and bustle of Samburu – an arid landscape dotted with lush springs and rocky river gorges, home to unique and rare wildlife species. Joy’s Camp works closely with local tribes, communities and guides; the camp’s focus is to conserve and preserve the beautiful culture and wildlife of Kenya, whilst providing a breathtaking experience for guests. Joy’s Camp has the prestigious Eco-tourism Gold rating, one of only a handful of camps in Kenya to do so – luxury and green can go together!
The main tent areas include a lounge, dining and viewing deck, fully stocked bar, swimming pool by which to relax, wellness facilities and a small curio shop.
