An elegant oasis in the arid lands of Samburu, Joy’s Camp is built on the site of Joy Adamson’s tented home in Shaba National Reserve: the most exclusive reserve in the dry wilds of central Kenya. Joy’s Camp is an extraordinarily stylish retreat: its 10 white tented-bedrooms combine nomadic Boran tribal detail with modern safari chic. All of have stunning views of the surrounding hills and a private veranda that overlooks the large waterhole. Joy’s Camp is the only camp operating in Shaba National Reserve so guests have the entire reserve to themselves. Joy’s Camp is a secluded idyll: the perfect choice for discerning guests seeking a unique combination of beautiful untamed landscapes, fascinating Kenyan history, authentic wildlife experience and, of course, an unprecedented level of luxury. Those with artistic inclinations will feel particularly at home as Joy Adamson specifically chose this site to paint the scenic surrounds. Joy’s Camp continues this tradition with art equipment available for all to use. Joy’s Camp has been awarded ‘Gold Level’ by Eco-tourism Kenya and won ‘Best Sustainable Hotel in Africa’ in the 2012 International Hotel Awards.
