Pin It

Joy’s camp is situated at Joy Adamson’s original campsite in the Shaba National Reserve… the place where she released her famous leopard “Penny”. The luxury tents are set on raised platforms with breathtaking views of the surrounding hills. The camp overlooks a large natural spring allowing continuous game viewing. It is home to resident buffalo, waterbuck and a regular watering hole for the large number of elephant passing through. Each sumptuous tent is uniquely decorated with Bedouin-Somali cloth design, creating a sophisticated and stylish camp with its own private deck, ideal for private game viewing, relaxing, reading. Joy’s Camp is the perfect choice for discerning guests interested in a glimpse of Kenyan history, as well as those looking for an authentic wildlife experience combined with the comfort of a luxury, tented camp.
