Game Drives

Joy’s Camp has open gamedrive vehicles. The current fleet are new, specially fitted, 4×4 Toyota Landcruisers. The vehicles are unrivalled with feature enhancements specifically designed for comfort and photography – open sided with 3 rows of seats, photographic equipment stands, and charging sockets. Guests will share gamedrives unless “exclusive use of vehicle” has been prebooked at an extra charge.

This is elephant and leopard country – rocky hills, huge acacias, and lush springs, the perfect habitat. Shaba is also home to the rare northern species; gerenuk (giraffe antelope), herds of Beisa oryx, Grevy zebra, reticulated giraffe, Somali ostrich, striped hyena – and a wonderful place to see klipspringer!

The camp is famous for its night gamedrives – clients have a full morning gamedrive, relax in camp in the afternoon, before a “theater dinner” at 6.30pm, and out for a long night gamedrive till about 10pm.  These arid lands, unlike the cooler savannahs have lots of activity going on after dark – wild cat, lions, aardwolf, hyena, owls, leopards …
