Sarova Shaba Game Lodge offers 85 modern rooms in chalet style with private views of the wildlife-rich banks of the Ewaso Nyiro River. Each room overlooks the river where the elephants sometimes make an appearance or the crocodiles come out to lounge by the river’s banks.
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. On August 26, 2011, Sarova Shaba Game Lodge became the first game lodge within Shaba, Samburu and Buffalo Springs National Reserves to be connected to the national electricity grid. Sarova Shaba Game Lodge previously ran on a diesel-powered generator.
