We recently visited Elephant Bedroom Camp for NYE and the camp and Samburu lived up to its reputation. When we arrived we had to wait 30 minutes for we could have lunch as a 40 year old Elephant called Bambo wanted to walk through the camp first. The food was very good, location amazing and tents very luxurious. Best of... More

This camp is truly amazing. Tents are luxurious, with large beds, drinking water, great bathroom with all the little treats of robes, soaps, slippers and creams. The plunge pools on the decks outside each tent are just big enough for two adults, but provide a great alternative as there is no large pool at the camp. Turn down service was... More

We were here as a large group for 3 nights and it was one of the most incredible experiences of my life. The staff were so genuinely friendly, helpful and funny and they made everyone feel right at home. The "tents" were so luxurious and comfortable, the view incredible and the food was delicious! I could've stayed forever and it... More

This place is simply magnificent! We stayed in a beautiful luxury tent along the banks of the river. Beautifully decorated and very comfortable. Elephants wonder through the camp at night and you can hear them chomping leaves from your bed if you are very lucky. The beds are really enormous and so the two beds were perfect for a couple...

After our amazing walking tour with Karisia, it was a treat to relax and hangout with the Elephants. Our family of five (kids ages 8, 11, 14) stayed in 2 amazing tents. Elephants wandered through the camp at all times of day. Wonderful food and great game drives. We saw a mother cheetah with her babies, elon, gerenoks and more.... More

We arrived at the camp on Friday and spent two nights. We loved the room setting and the fact that we had a private plunge pool to cool us from the Samburu sun! We had three encounters with the resident elephants that came to graze right next to our bedroom. It was amazing being able to see the elephants trunk... More

3 years in Kenya and about 30 safaris in different parks and different lodges so you can trust us. In Samburu (lot of wild) our favorite one is definitely Elephant bedroom : for its location, for the tents (very spacious, very clean, very tastefully decorated and very comfortable), for the outside private "pool" with view to the river. The whole... More

We were picked up from the airport by our Samburu Guide - Julius and were eye to eye with a lioness within 10 minutes. As we arrived at the camp there were elephants in and around the camp. It does exactly what it says on the tin!! The camp is superbly located on the river and brilliantly set out. Our... More
