Shaba & Buffalo Springs

Northern Kenya is a wild and magical place, with dramatic landscapes. We often camp in Shaba on a lovely spring called Funan or Buffalo Springs. On this safari Ninian and our guests were staying at Joys Camp.

The Uaso Nyiro River is the main source of water for wildlife in the area and provides some of the most stunning scenery

Although small by East African standards, it is home to many of the plant and animal communities typical of northern Kenya.

Because of permanent water this area is home to species such as buffalo, impala, waterbuck, as well as those adapted to semi-desert conditions such as gerenuk, oryx and Grevy’s zebra, many of which are endemic to this area
