Game Drives

The Joy’s Camp guides are based at the lodge in Shaba National Reserve, they have the whole park to themselves and know their backyard intimately. All the guides are Bronze or Silver level Kenya Professional Safari Guides Association certified.

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, brown and striped hyena – and a wonderful place to see klipspringer!
