Shaba National Park - 'Born Free' country
Shaba is a relatively small national park lying just east of Samburu and only 70 kilometres north of Mount Kenya. This exceptionally picturesque park was made famous by the late Joy Adamson and her lioness Elsa, and is often referred to as ‘Born Free’ country. Along with Buffalo Springs and Samburu, Shaba forms a large conservation area in the remote reaches of northern Kenya. While the parks form a unique habitat where both northern and southern wildlife can be found, they are also home to a number of rare species, such as the reticulated giraffe, gerenuk, Somali ostrich and the endangered Grevy's zebra.
