We´re very much spoiled and demanding safari guests,because we´ve lived in Kenya for three years and have seen many places and done many safaris (not only in Kenya). Elephant´s Bedroom is certainly one of the most impressive places we´ve seen in Kenya (when coming back again), and not only in Kenya .... And such is the wildlife of Samburu, too... More

The amenities at Elephant are wonderful. The addition of plunge pool is an excellent idea since a game drive in the early afternoon is not advised( it is too hot for the animals and also for us). The rooms are large and very comfortable with hot showers powered by solar energy! The actual location by the river means the elephants... More

I simply can't say enough about this accomodation - spacious comfortable accomodation, attentive and very pleasant staff (and guards) and incredible food. Being located in the park and not being fenced means that animals (large and small) often wander past your window.

I will keep this short and to the point. The manager was on leave when we stayed and we were given the wrong room to start, this was sorted after lunch but when we went to bed the sheets we still wet and the room not very clean. The next day we wanted to use the plunge pool but on... More

We have just returned from elephant bedroom camp & could not have been happier! The whole experience from being met from our small aircraft at oryx airstrip by a smiling anthony & being transported through the park in a wonderfully authentic open top jeep was beyond all our expectations ! Upon arrival we were met with the most helpful staff... More

Elephant Bedroom was recommended by our Nairobi based travel agent (Wild Destinations). We'd never heard of it, but after describing what we were looking for in our honeymoon, it was a fantastic choice. We were welcomed with a refreshing drink and cool towel, which was great after the 6 hr drive from Nairobi (Great mix of landscape on the way).... More

The place is very nice, and as the name implies, there really are elephants roaming around the camp pretty much at any time of the day/night. It is very nice to see, though if you've been up close to elephants before, it can lose its charm when your breakfast is interrupted several times by elephant alerts (so you need to... More

We stayed 3 at the Elephant Bedroom Camp - aptly named as there was an almost permanent resident group of seven or so, that wandered through the camp day and night. Staff would move guests to the main tent if you were eating at the riverbank, as the elephants came through, and you could hear them wandering by your tent... More

I have been lucky enough to stay in many superb places in Africa, but being evacuated from a luxurious tent in the wee small hours of the morning was a first. The wonderfully calm and professional staff turned a potentially uncomfortable situation into an interesting and positively fun experience. Anyone can see wildlife in Samburu, not everyone will have memories... More
