Luxury African Safari At The Sarova Shaba Lodge In Kenya

By Peter R Stewart

Before you decide on your Kenya Safari Holiday which might well be a thought for your honeymoon destination, do remember to check out the Sarova Shaba Lodge in the Shaba National reserve in Kenya north of Nairobi.

Any Luxury African Safari simply has to include a visit to where Joy Adamson lived and worked with her lions and was murdered in the early 1980’s. The Joy Adamson Monument is a must see, and the wildlife in the Shaba National Reserve is unforgettable.

Shaba is not a crowded place to go, quite well off the beaten track, and there are a number of good reasons for going and staying at Sarova Shaba Lodge, whether you choose it as a honeymoon destination or just part of your luxury African Safari.

The Sarova Shaba Lodge in the Shaba National Reserve is a place not to be missed on your Kenya Safari Holiday. Spring water flows through the lodge flowing into the Ewaso Nyiro River and crocodile viewing is a popular sport within the grounds of the Lodge from a safe vantage point.

There are 80 luxury thatched roof rooms, each faces the river, and are furnished in local materials, with lovely en-suite bathrooms.

There is an open air restaurant, the Surpelei restaurant, which overlooks the river, an interesting and welcoming swimming pool, and two bars.


This in itself makes Sarova Shaba Lodge a very desirable stopping off spot on your Luxury African Safari.

The real question is why visit Sarova Shaba Lodge as opposed to other lodges on your Kenya Safari Holiday, or why choose it as a honeymoon destination?

Firstly as a base to view quite magnificent wildlife apart from the crocodiles in the grounds. The park is home to a veritable host of wildlife that is unique to this part of Kenya. You may well see the reticulated Giraffe, Grevy’s zebra, gerenuk, beisa oryx and the Somali ostrich. The area also has lion, cheetah, elephant, buffalo and leopard, and over 100 species of birds.

The Lodge gives you the chance to experience Arica in a unique way, and makes you feel close to the Kenya of Joy Adamson.

There are four suites and a Honeymoon suite.

The swimming pool is a great place to relax by between Game Drives.

There is the opportunity to meet the colourful Samburu tribe.

It is only 45 minutes by air from Nairobi.

You can enjoy sundowner cocktails on the banks of the Ewaso Nyiro River, and Game Drives and Walks within the Shaba Game reserve.

You can visit the crocodile infested Ewaso Ngiro River or dine and wine out in the jungle under the protection of Samburu Morans, either lunch or dinner.

After a long day out and about in the wild, you can relax to the experienced hands of a masseuse. Alternatively, get adventurous and have the massage in the wild!

The Massages that are offered are as follows: Swedish, Holistic and Aromatherapy.

You can go crocodile feeding or even take a camel ride to view the beautiful Shaba landscape.
