Elephants bedroom camp is easily accessible by road from Nairobi. The camp is small, only about fifteen tents. Staff were excellent, particularly the food server and the guides. As a vegetarian I really appreciated the effort made to have choices for non-meat eaters other than vegetable curry or omelet. Tents are HUGE, with loads of space and a big bathroom... More

This camp was very special - excellent tent, comfortable bed, tasty food. The atmosphere was intoxicating with a female elephant and her calf feeding just 50 yards in front of our tent and monkeys wandering about, (indeed you had to put a little lock through the zipper in your tent because they have figured out how to unzip it!) Superb... More

What can we say that has not been said before, not a lot but this was one of the best lodges/camps we have stayed at in all our trips to Kenya. Form the location right on the river to the spacious and luxurious rooms each with there own plunge pools, a welcome relief from the hot midday sun. The food... More

we where travelling in spring 2014 - a little late for a review but we don't want to miss the chance to express how much we liked this camp. We have seen many Kenyan Camps in the last 2 years and think that this is one of the best. Breakfast is rich and you always have beautiful birds as guests... More

This is a wonderful camp with great service. Anthony was particularly fantastic both as a host and as a game drive guide. Cheetahs, lions, elephants, we saw it all during our two night stay. And what better reason to postpone our lunch because an elephant decided to wander through the dining area! The tents are spacious, clean and very comfortable,... More

As per the reviews, this is a great luxury tent camp in a great location for some wildlife experience. I would come back here anytime - hope to next year! Nothing quite like sitting on your deck (with a little in deck whirlpool!) and watching Elephants marching through your front lawn! Monkeys are fun to watch around the camp also... More

We stayed here for 3 nights. The tents were spacious, well equipped and beautifully maintained. The camp manager was most accommodating to our needs and made our stay at camp as pleasant as we could have ever hoped for. The food was great, especially the vegetarian choices and the bar and restaurant staff was attentive and caring. I was slightly... More

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
