We stayed here for 7 nights as part of a photographic safari organised for us. The staff were very friendly and nothing was too much trouble. The public area has Wi Fi and comfortable seating areas. Dinner (three courses) is served here at night. Breakfast and lunch are served down by the river. Breakfast is an enormous buffet and lunch... More

Couldn't recommend this camp highly enough. The tents were extremely luxurious and the food was of a very high standard. The staff were friendly and knowledgeable, very sad when we had to leave. I had an Elephant bedroom massage in the treatment tent and it was one of the best massages I have had.

First place we stayed on our trip to Kenya, and my favourite. If you are looking for an earthy experience of safari, in a stunning location with the VERY best care being taken of you, this is the place to go. Samburu is utterly charming and the camps location by the river is idyllic. The staff have great presence and... More

After a long journey from Scotland we arrived at Elephant's bedroom to a very warm welcome and a delicious lunch. Our tent was beautiful two kingsize beds, a very smart bathroom including a lovely warm shower with decent pressure. After a delicious lunch and quick shower to freshen up we set of on our first safari drive. Our driver James... More

Probably the most amazing place we have ever stayed! From the lovely staff to the 5* food you couldn't want for a more luxurious but also down to earth and friendly safari experience. Going out on drive's and seeing leopards, lions, elephants and lots lots more with experienced and very knowledgeable guides and then heading back to camp to have... More

We flew to Samburu on an AirKenya flight, which was, due to the weather, like a roller coaster ride! Thankfully, being met Julies and have a relaxing game drive en route to the camp, vanished any uncomfortable feelings. En route Julies pointed out elephants, my favourite animal, an array of antelope, and a variety of birds. Once at the camp,... More

We stayed for 3 nights in May 2015 and highly enjoyed the atmosphere of the tented camp as well as their excellent customer service at the Elephant Bedroom. This is a place to visit if one searches for close wildlife encounters and beautiful scenery. The elephants and hippopotami come very close to the tents to graze and several birds (starlings...
