Rooms are fantastic, surrounded by nature, food is amazing, staff always looking to go the extra mile. Enchanting elephants, tons of cool birds-even owls, baboons, monkeys, hoofed animals coming to water hole and river, sundowners. I wish I could live here. One small criticism-the beds are pretty hard, but we found this to be true everywhere we went in Kenya.... More

Stayed here in Aug for 2 nights. An absolutely stunning, tranquil and serene place. We all fell in love with the location at first sight . The welcome was as warm and genuine as Africa itself. We had two camps which were very nice. Only draw back as its been mentioned before is that they are starting to look a... More

Elephant Bedroom is a lovely location for a fabulous weekend away. It's a very special place, located next to a river, with beautiful rooms, each with their own plunge pool.. Super attentive staff, good food, and a resident elephant that walks through the camp!. Oh, and the 'almost outdoor' massage room to add to the experience.

Rooms are spacious, clean with beautiful decor and a little tub on the deck to cool off with a view of the river and elephants if you are lucky. They are made of canvas - 'luxury tents'. Some parts did look a bit tired as there were areas of patch work - obviously not an issue, but good to take... More

Stayed at Elephant Bedroom with a few friends in June and had a wonderful time. It's a perfectly situated place that is very nice, though it could use a little touch up work around the edges.

One of the loveliest camps we'd been to: no piped music like some park hotels seem to think you'd want upon arrival (see other review), low-key but warm welcome, no request too difficult. Delicious food if on the small portion side. A very natural, open air feel certainly enhanced further by the thrill of wandering elephants through the camp and... More

Elephant Bedroom Camp was my favorite in my recent visit to Kenya, my one on one with the elephant was one of most amazing memories, and will always be with me. Everything was was beyond what I expected, the animals, accommodations, friendly staff hospitality and I had a fabulous massage too! I will defiantly want to visit again.

Just back from another incredible visit to Elephant Bedroom. This place is truly special and may be my favourite place in the world. I could not recommend this place more. Sitting in a plunge pool on your balcony whilst a fully grown bull elephant grazes 10m from you is not something you can experience in many places. Everything about this... More

If you want up close and personal, with lovely views, fantastic game drives, a LOT of good food and awesome accommodations, then Elephant Bedroom Camp is the place. Four bulls own the place, with Samburu being the most benign and interested in getting his picture taken. The guards make sure you are safe at all times, and there's nothing like... More

We loved the setting of elephant bedroom. You can't beat elephants walking through the camp. The first game drive was amazing as well, lioness + cubs and a leopard! On the negative side, the tents need to be tightened as during the wind in the evening all of the flapping and slamming of the tent panels was extremely noisy!! We... More

Thank you for your candid review. We are pleased that you liked the setting of the camp and appreciate all your comments.
