GUIDE ON SHABA NATIONAL RESERVE IN KENYA
Predators survive well with numerous prey animals, so you are likely to see cheetahs, lions, leopards and even Nile crocodiles to nocturnal fauna like aardwolves and striped hyenas. The forests and arid areas attract more than 450 species of birds. White-throated bee-eaters, palm nut vultures, verreaux’s eagles, yellow-necked spur fowls, red-billed hornbills and secretary birds are just some of the avi-fauna that have been recorded in Shaba. The reserve is also the southern limit for three arid country species – Donaldson’s Smith sparrow-weavers, bristle-crowned starlings and shining sunbirds. Visit from October to April, and you can also record migratory species. From the action-adventure tours of Shaba of game drives to the more leisurely and intimate exploration of nature walks, the reserve fits your personal style of discovering a remote and wild landscape. Game drives are offered every day in the morning and afternoon, and we can arrange a full-day game drive that includes a delectable bush lunch. These drives are exceptional options for photographers as you cross the varied terrain under different light conditions to capture some of the most iconic images of East Africa.
Guided nature walks are customized to your pace to suit your fitness and interest level. Guides describe small aspects of the ecosystem that are easily missed during high-paced game drives. AfricanMecca highly recommends that you schedule time for a village visit to interact with the local Samburu tribe. While you learn about some of the native cultures during game drives and nature walks, being in a village is quite a different experience. You may be invited into a home for meal preparation, learn traditional jewelry making, cattle herding and even attend an elder’s counsel. Members of the local villages are especially accommodating to children and arrange unique activities to fit their age level and curiosity.
