Camps And Lodges In Samburu & Shaba

Ever present is the remarkable view of Kilimanjaro, under which the park boasts one of Kenya’s best displays of wildlife. Hemingway wrote of it as the essence of Africa. Elephants rummage in the lower forests, Leopards prowl the salt flats, Antelope graze. All against the backdrop of Kilimanjaro’s majestic peak. The classic image of Africa. Apart from a few patches of acacia forest, Amboseli parklands comprise of only scrub and very fragile saline grass-the dry volcanic ash would host little more. The melting snows of Kilimanjaro feed rivers and springs that supply water to the swamps and like Amboseli, which is usually completely dry flooding only in the rainy seasons. Attracted to the swamps are a large variety of wildlife comprising of Antelope, Wildebeest, Giraffe, Zebra, large herds of Elephant, Rhino and Buffalo, and the predators, the Lion, Cheetah and occasionally the Leopard. Much a part of the Amboseli scenery is the Maasai tribesmen who graze their cattle here, for this is also the home of the Maasai.

joys Safari Camp
Joy’s Camp is located in the Shaba National Reserve some 200 miles north of Nairobi in the rugged landscape of Northern Kenya. George and Joy Adamson carried much of their famous work in this small reserve, and the camp is on the original site of Joy Adamson’s own home camp.There are ten large Bedouin Somali style tents at Joy’s Camp, each equipped with an adjoining bathroom. All of the tents have a viewing deck that overlooks the natural spring next to the camp. The resident wildlife uses the spring as their principal source of water.
Amboseli Sentrim
Sentrim Amboseli’s location deep inside the reserve guarantees close encounters with the park’s renowned  elephants. Also happily roaming the grasslands are buffallos, wildebeast, zebra, giraffes, impalas and several predators. Located 280 kilometers south of Nairobi and 260 kilometers north of Mombasa. During the wet season, the rains flood the lake bed and the surrounding area.
Though, this plentiful water does not sustain a rich vegetal variety. The cause is the high salt deposits in the lake bed, which the flood dilute and disperse hindering plant growth. For this reason few trees grow in the park, only small patches of acacia and some palm trees far off the lake. Contrariwise, salt-rich pastures grow and are very appreciated by the herbivores. Despite the first impression of a dusty and arid land, actually Amboseli is overflowing with water all the year round, but under the ground.
