Shaba National Reserve

Shaba National Reserve is on Samburu land and covers 239 sq kms. Shaba was where Joy Adamson, author of Born Free spent her final years, returning a leopard to the wild. This was the subject of her final book, Queen of Shaba. A monument is on the reserve in her honour.

More recently, Shaba served as the location for the hit series ‘Survivor Africa’, which pitted its contestants against the challenges of this wild remote country.
