Joy's Camp

  • Important Information
Situated in an elegant oasis in the arid lands of Samburu, Joy’s Camp is built on the site of Joy Adamson’s tented home in the Shaba National Reserve. The site was also home to Penny the leopard, who was the heroine of Joy's last book.

The 10 chic canvas bedrooms have breathtaking views of the surrounding hills. 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. Each sumptuous tent is uniquely decorated with Boran or Somali cloth designs, handmade glass and the vibrant fabrics of the local nomadic tribes creating a chic, sophisticated and stylish camp. Private verandahs are ideal for game viewing as well as relaxing, reading and soaking up the truly wild environment offered by the Shaba National Reserve.

Shaba is a secluded idyll on the eastern corner of the Samburu ecosystem. It is an arid landscape dotted with lush springs and rocky river gorges. Joy’s Camp is the ideal 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.
