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

We have just returned from a six night trip to Kenya which included 3 nights at the Elephant Bedroom Camp. We picked Elephant Bedroom Camp because of the excellent reviews and it exceeded our expectations. The tents were very comfortable and kept beautifully clean and well stocked with bottled water. It was so nice to be able to relax on... More

We stayed two nights here, and as many of the other reviewers have noted, we wish we could have stayed longer. The setting along the Samburu River is wonderful. We so enjoyed drinking our morning wake up coffee while sitting on our deck overlooking the river. The food is great, and we slept soundly in our large, comfortable tent. Game... More

Elephant Bedroom Camp is exactly what we wanted on a trip to Africa--the experience of being in a tent "in the bush" with wild animals nearby (and walking through the camp), but with great amenities and service. This was one of our favorite places on our two-week East Africa safari, and we wish we could have stayed three rather than... More
