Mission to Kenya 2005

Tuesday, January 18, 2005


We are located within the Shaba Game Reserve.

The hotel describes itself quite rightly as “an oasis in the heart of Eastern Kenya. A unique African experience for those of you with a true sense of adventure.”

This game reserve was made famous by the late Joy Adamson (she was murdered by poachers) and her lioness, Elsa. The area is sometimes referred to as “Born Free country.”

The lodge sits on the banks of the Uaso Nyiro river which, we are assured, is full of crocodiles (the “feeding” can be observed at 7 pm each day).

There are also lots of little monkeys around; one of them manages to swipe a roll of f the buffet table at every meal! There are 80 chalet style rooms and a few fancier suites. The area supports giraffe, Grevy’s Zebra, Gerenuk and Beisa Oryx, elephant, and 150 recorded species of birds. There is a beautiful swimming pool and trickling (man-made) streams throughout the resort grounds.

We wish you were here to enjoy it with us!
