This property has an oasis that runs through it making it stand out in the middle of an otherwise desert type vegetation. On arrival the staff greets you with some cold towels infused with eucalyptus. The check in process was quick and efficient. The rooms were very spacious and the surrounding vegetation gives a very calming and relaxing effect. The... More

After an hour of searching for an acceptable place to stay in Isiolo, we gave up. Luckily one of our team recalled that Sarova Shaba was not too far away. Our panicked last minute calls to their reservation team were met positively and we were able to book 4 rooms for 2 nights. The staff at the hotel are incredibly... More

The Sarova Shaba is elegantly hanging on the edge of Ewaso Nyiro River inside Shaba National Reserve. The closest I could get to an Elephant and crocodiles was at Shaba - 2 meters away with only electric fence between us. The rooms are excellent and for those with family, you can get twin rooms that can open up to each... More

Shaba is a great place to escape to the bush with small people. The staff very pleasant and helpful. The reserve is great because you have the choice to do a short local game drive or go about 20 mins to the Samburu reserve for a longer drive. Your ticket let's you in to both as well as buffalo spring.... More

This delightful hotel is on a beautiful river where crocodiles and elephants stroll, and monkeys and baboons play. The rooms are clean and comfortable, and the restaurant is a covered outdoor setting that is delightful. It is wonderfully situated convenient to three game reserves.

Choosing Sarova Shaba for a country getaway was the highlight of my trip. The propoerty is well maintained and secured while being in the middle of the reserve.
