Deep in the arid northern part of Kenya is Shaba National Reserve which forms part of a trio of reserves quite different from the ones found in Kenya. Shaba takes its name from Mount Shaba, a volcanic mountain that became extinct around 5,000 years ago and lies on the border of the reserve.
In the middle of this desert of volcanic earth lies Sarova Shaba Game Lodge, Kenya's best kept secret. Built in an oasis around the natural terrain of this breathtaking volcanic desert, the lodge is attractively laid out with chalet style rooms overlooking the Ewaso Nyiro River. Natural spring water has been harnessed to ribbon its way in and out all around the property creating a beautiful landscape.
Coupled with the large free-form swimming pool that flows around the lush gardens and tall trees, all this refreshing water lends an almost magical feel to this natural oasis.
Sarova Shaba Game Lodge offers a unique experience that extends beyond game drives in the reserve. The lodge has a plethora of activities to indulge in, from bird watching to camel safaris, the viewing deck along the river, and feeding and watching crocodiles, making it a destination in itself.
All 85 modern chalet style rooms and suites at Sarova Shaba Game Lodge have private balconies with close views of the river and game park, en-suite bathrooms, overhead fans, and tea and coffee making facilities.
All meals are served al fresco at the Surpelei Restaurant that is raised on stilts offering breathtaking views of the lush gardens and the Ewaso Nyiro River. The sumptuous cuisine includes Pan-African, Pan-European and Pan-Asian.
