AUTHENTIC SAFARIS & PERSONALIZED TOURS IN SHABA WITH AFRICANMECCA

Step into a landscape made famous by some of the most noteworthy films ever made about Africa. Shaba National Reserve is the setting of the films “Born Free” and “Out of Africa”, and your safari experience with AfricanMecca is reminiscent of these beloved historical stories. Each day you wake up to the golden sunrise that enlivens your spirit and invites you to explore the vast wilderness expanses just outside your door. Join an experienced skilled guide on a game drive and journey into the reserve for an adventure that seems like a surreal African classic safari taken straight from the book and motion pictures. Your bush trip of Shaba Reserve ignites your imagination as you anticipate the moment that you see the majestic lions, striking cheetahs, stealthy leopards and other carnivores stalking their prey, resting on a rocky outcrop and playing amongst themselves. The elusive leopard is the most challenging to observe, and your guide carefully approaches the acacia riverine trees where these graceful creatures are most frequently sighted. The wildlife management practices of Shaba has made it a haven for rare species, and you may have a once-in-a-lifetime chance to see a striped hyena, aardwolf and wild dogs – some of Kenya’s most-threatened species! Shaba also has its own special 5 – gerenuks, grevy’s zebras, Somali ostriches, beisa oryx and reticulated giraffes

The ostriches are joined by hundreds of other birds, totaling an incredible 450 species recorded around the reserve and neighboring wildernesses. Nature and birding walks are admirable times to look closely into the foliage, along the river, woodland and into the cliffs for a variety of feathered inhabitants. Some of the most common species seen are a variety of kingfishers, bee-eaters, eagles, storks, sunbirds, vultures, secretary birds, starlings and rollers. The phenomenal diversity is due in part to the reserve being home to both riverine forest and arid northern country species. Globally threatened avi-fauna include lesser kestrels and Taita falcons that are joined by regionally threatened species. During these walks, we also recommend that you explore the activity beyond the feathered experience. Shaba National Reserve has an intriguing population of insects, plants and small mammals, reptiles, amphibians that will interest and delight you during your bush walks. During your wilderness travel in Shaba (read more on where to stay), you have the pleasure of being escorted by members of local villages. Being this close to the Samburu native people gives you a new perspective of the challenges faced by many ethnic groups who are working to preserve their way of life in the modern world. AfricanMecca can also arrange for an enlightening cultural tour of Kenya’s small villages in the greater Shaba ecology. During the visits, you meet families and may even be invited into a traditional home, join the warriors in cattle herding, local women in craft making and follow the elders to a community meet-up. A village visit is an especially curious safari activity for families with children.
