It was at Shaba that Joy Adamson’s famous movie” Born Free” was filmed. The dominating feature in the whole reserve is the Uaso Nyiro River on whose banks the lodge stands. All along this river grow doum palms and acacia and other plants which have adapted well to the arid surroundings. Along the entire length of this river are many different species of wildlife and birds some only found in this hot and dry habitat. The Grevy Zebra, the Gerenuk, the Beisa Oryx and the Somali Ostrich are some of the unique animals found only in this reserve. The reserve is also home to the big cats- lions and leopards, and also has a fairly large population of crocodiles.
