GUIDE ON SAROVA SHABA GAME LODGE IN KENYA
A large piece of property with lush landscaped gardens of lawns, trees and indigenous shrubbery, fed by a rerouted spring that meanders through it on its way to the river, Sarova Shaba Game Lodge is a value accommodation in Shaba National Reserve. The Ewaso Nyiro River flows close by and the lodge’s resort-style swimming pool sidetracks to the mood of serenity with birds singing in the trees, monkeys scampering about and fish swimming in tiny pools around the lodge. Stone paving and the small wooden walkways bridge the miniature streams leading to the lodge’s two-story chalets that are architecturally shaped with stone and thatched roof structures thus adding a hotel-like appeal to it. The lodge welcomes budget families vacationing in Africa, but they do advise that you keep watch over the kids at all times. They offer 80 Standard Rooms and 5 Suites, each of which overlooks the river. The Standard Rooms are sited in two-level chalets that house 4 rooms apiece. The rooms have a double bed covered with mosquito netting, but some of the rooms also have twin or triple beds. Hand-drawing frames adorn the walls and bamboo-woven easy chairs along with side tables, dresser and lampshades add to its modest, comfortable appeal. Area rugs are scattered on the stone floor and a ceiling fan circulates air. The room also includes a mini-fridge and tea and coffee making equipment for your use. Attached bathrooms include a bath and the basic amenities typical of a budget establishment. Mobility challenged AfricanMecca guests will find the floor level rooms accessible to their basic needs. If you would prefer more spacious living spaces on your non-frill tour of Shaba or if you are traveling with a small family, you could opt for one of the Executive Suites at Sarova Shaba Lodge. These suites come with a sitting room and a roomy bedroom. The lodge also offers a Presidential Suite also called the Born Free Suite in honor of Joy Adamson. This suite is housed in an exclusive villa and includes a spacious bedroom, lounge-cum-dining-room and an en-suite bathroom with Jacuzzi. The lodge's main dining area, the Surpelei Restaurant, offers a range of modest cuisines flavored with herbs and fresh produce from their gardens. Located on a raised platform to a first-story level, the restaurant has high roofs held up by wooden beams with colorful lanterns hanging from it. Buffet meals are laid out for you to choose from, but special requests to meet tastes or dietary requirements are welcome and some selections are cooked on site for you. The lodge also has two bars, the riverside Chemi Chemi Bar and the poolside Carraluma Bar. For open air dining experience on your delectable trip in East Africa, you can request that your meals be served at various sites on the lodge grounds, on a sandbank or beside the river; though extra cost applies for the latter options. While your safari wildlife viewing experiences begin at the lodge when you watch Nile crocodiles sunning themselves on the riverbanks or elephant herds drinking, you will go on game drives in custom-equipped vehicles with a well-read, experienced AfricanMecca guide on board who will present you to the wondrous creatures of Shaba. You could optionally also go on camelback safaris and view rare northern animals like reticulated giraffes, Grevy’s zebras, gerenuks, Beisa oryx and many more. You will also see the unique Somali ostriches with their distinct blue coloring (read more on when is the best time to visit Shaba). Look out for predators like lions, leopards, hyenas, cheetahs, wild dogs and others and also for the more than 350 species of birds. Spend your cultural focused Shaba holiday by visiting nearby Samburu Villages while traveling in wild Kenya.
