Sarova Shaba Game Lodge is located in a natural oasis in the heart of the Shaba Game Reserve or “Born Free Country” that Joy and George Adamson called home for many years.

The lodge is 314 km from Nairobi, a 45 minute flight from Nairobi to Shaba or Samburu airstrip or a picturesque 5 hour drive through the curving roads around Mt. Kenya crossing the equator at Nanyuki.

It is set along the bank of the Ewaso Nyiro River laid out around the natural springs that flow into the river. The Lodge has a virtual mini forest of indigenous trees, a fish pond and a large free form swimming pool.

Sarova Shaba Game Lodge has one tastefully furnished presidential suite that also encapsulates the Samburu culture in its interior décor. Situated amongst natural springs and lily pools, the suite is a stand-alone unit with a large bedroom, living and dining area and a vast bathroom with a private Jacuzzi. This suite embodies the history of Joy Adamson and is named the “Born Free Suite”.

Children are welcome at Sarova Shaba Game Lodge. We have a number of activities for children such as swimming, walking safaris, nature and bird walks within the secure premises, a visit to the local village, sport fishing and board games.
