Joys Camp Samburu

Joy’s Camp Samburu is a luxury tented accommodation located in the heart of Shaba National Reserve. Named after the acclaimed author and naturalist Joy Adamson, the camp is built on the site of her tented home, the place where she released her famous leopard “Penny. 

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

Joy’s Camp is located 314 km from Nairobi. Driving time from Nairobi is approximately 6 hours and a 90-minute flight from Wilson Airstrip to Chaffa airstrip, which is 4 km from Joy’s Camp. Transfer from the Airstrip to the camp takes 15 Minutes. Charter flight from Nanyuki takes about 45 Minutes.

Joy’s Camp comprises just 10 luxury tented suites (7 doubles, 3 twins), each set on raised platforms to take full advantage of the views of the hills and the spring. Within the walls of canvas, artisan glass and colorful textiles from local nomadic tribes mingle alongside authentic “Borana” African details with chic decor.

Permanent en-suite baths are private havens of luxury featuring stone floors, flush toilets, and hot running water to ensure that no modern convenience is overlooked. Lounge in the comfort of the large bedroom or take in the surrounds from the furnished private verandah of each suite.

Meals at Joys Camp Samburu are a sumptuous fusion of tastes inspired by Northern Italian and traditional African recipes prepared with fresh, locally sourced produce. Dining is a private experience at Joy’s Camp; special breakfasts can be arranged along the Ewaso Nyiro River or romantic candlelit meals under the stars.

Guests can also enjoy their meals on the wooden-stone decks outside which are perfect for al fresco meals or for relaxing. The bar serves a variety of alcohol and soft drinks.

The camp boasts a sparkling pool where guests can cool off from the heat of the day and soak up this remarkable bush environment as well as a spa and massage area where guests have a wonderful way to ease the stress out of tired shoulders and backs.

Shaba National Reserve is enriched with extraordinary wildlife including elephants, lions, cheetahs, gerenuks, buffalos, grant gazelles, dik-diks, waterbucks and the rare desert species of beisa oryx, reticulated giraffe and grevys zebra that are attracted to the 17 springs located in the area. The river forest attracts a wide variety of birds.
