Joy’s Camp is located in the Shaba National Reserve some 200 miles north of Nairobi in the rugged landscape of Northern Kenya. George and Joy Adamson carried much of their famous work in this small reserve, and the camp is on the original site of Joy Adamson’s own home camp.
Accommodation & Facilities
There are ten large Bedouin Somali style tents at Joy’s Camp, each equipped with an adjoining bathroom. All of the tents have a viewing deck that overlooks the natural spring next to the camp. The resident wildlife
uses the spring as their principal source of water.
