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...

We stayed in March 2015 for 2 nights, We had an amazing stay and although it was our 3rd time in Kenya this camp was wonderful. The staff were fantastic, food very good and we were even presented with a beautiful birthday cake for my husband. Would definately recommend a stay here, wish we could have stayed longer.

My dad and I stayed one night here after climbing Mount Kenya. The food was excellent, the facilities were beautiful, and the staff was friendly. But the absolute best part was waking up to see elephants just outside our tent in the morning! We watched perhaps a dozen elephants - including very small babies - browse in the trees just... More

Five of us returned to this lovely camp for just two nights over Easter. It was very dry and hot as we arrived but the rains broke that very afternoon. The river was low but just flowing. We saw Elephants, lion, cheetah and plains game. The park is exceptional for keeping vehicle on the roads. So no driving off road... More

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

Upon personal recommendation of a friend, we booked the second part of our safari staying at this being raved Elephant Bedroom Camp, Samburu National Reserve, Kenya.
