We just came back from Shaba with wonderful memories. The lodge is beautiful set in the wilderness of Shaba national reserve. We checked in early so there was a slight hitch in getting our room but it was sorted out. The whole staff that we came in contact with from the manager to the front desk supervisor to the chef...

If this is not a sign that there can be paradise in wilderness then I don't know what is. The streams flowing within the hotel,the quiet atmosphere is very good for people escaping the hustles of the city and not to mention a very good site for photography. Well I should make time to visit the place again

The Sarova Shaba game lodge is set by a river (with resident crocodiles!) and has little streams running throughout the grounds which creates a cooling, restful atmosphere. The rooms overlook the river and are in two story small blocks. The rooms are very spacious, clean and well appointed. Watch out for the monkeys! The pool is large and next to... More

I last visited Sarova Shaba about 7-8 years ago, I loved it then, and loved it even more now. On a night stop on a trip to Marsabit, it was a natural choice for the evening and night. Rooms great, water flowing in the Uaso Nyiro always refreshing and giving one that calm healing feeling, water from the springs flowing... More

The 8 Km off road journey from the main tarmac road from Isiolo town feels like forever - but I think it has to do with going somewhere for the first time - the "to" journey always feels longer than the "from" journey - I always feel that way. From the moment you set foot into the Lodge, its all... More

Lovely place. The highway to Samburu is great which makes for an excellent drive. The pool was perfect given the weather. The staff was accommodating and all round pleasant. Our room had a jacuzzi:-). The place is great for its price.
