What a great place to stay in samburu. We had 3 nights here and thoroughly enjoyed it. Very attractive by the river where elephants can be seen wandering in the distance when you have your meals. Birds are so tame they come right up to your table looking for any crumbs! Tables are individual rather than communal and you can... More

We spent 4 nights here during our Kenya holiday and this place is amazing! Location is fantastic, right by the river and in the middle of the park, allowing you to experience monkeys, giraffe and elephants right from your porch. The 'tents' are fantastic, well appointed with great views from the plunge pools. Food is pretty good, let down by... More

My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights earlier this month and had a very good experience. It's a nice camp with very large, luxurious tents. Our guide, Anthony was very friendly and professional and showed us a great time. We recommend visiting a Samburu village which we did.

... you can actually see elephants while lying down at your bed inside your tent! We stayed only for 2 nights, not enough for sure... The Camp is in an amazing place inside the Reserve, and with a river right in front of us. The tent was very spacious, comfortable, and with everything you need, including precious privacy. The common... More

The location of this camp is wonderful! You could spend hours watching the elephants, baboons and birds on the far river bank, all from the luxury of your tent. Unlike other camps in Samburu, this camp is not fenced in and we had regular visits from elephants near to our tent throughout the day and night. We stayed in tent... More

We stayed there for 5 nights, which were definately not too long for the t Samburu. The tents are luxury and very well equiped. To have the elefants really around the tents is a special "value add", which gives a lovely experiance. During the night we could hear even lions close by and the breaking branches of animals having late... More

While visiting the reserve, we stayed at this camp for 2 nights which is definitely needed to see the Reserve. The camp has luxury tents with a small dipping pool on the patio of each tent so that you can cool off if you are hot. Alas I never got to try it since I was so busy just trying... More

We spent two nights at the Elephant Bedroom Camp in July. This had actually been the camp which started our planning of our African safari, as friends had stayed there the previous year and their pictures convinced us we had to go. It was amazing! Sam the elephant spent a lot of time in the camp, so close ups were... More
