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. But the staff more than makes up for it. Incredibly friendly, great food and incredibly well organized. I highly recommend it to anyone visiting... More

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. The flapping of the tents when the winds are high is not a continuous thing as our camp as the camp staff regularly ensure that the guy ropes are kept tight. Unfortunately this is the windy season in... More

We had a very enjoyable stay at EBR. The tents are very roomy and the beds are extremely comfortable. The plunge pool comes in very useful during the hot days. Food was good if not amazing. The camp gets regular visits from a stunning big male elephant

From the minute we arrived at Elephant Bedroom, we were made to feel totally welcome which was great seeing it was our first time in Kenya and first time to Samburu. We were shown our 'tent' which was more than luxurious, it had all the mod cons, very comfy bedding, double bowl sinks in the bathroom and flushing loo and... More

We really enjoyed our stay. The tent was spacious, with a great view of the river. Our daughter loved the plunge pool, and the food was excellent. Would definitely recommend this place! The staff were welcoming and Samburu Park was a highlight of our trip. Elephants and leopards all in one day! Loved it!

I stayed at Elephant Bedroom Camp for 4 nights. When we first arrived it was very hot and no breeze so the tents were not comfortable to be in. There is a nice deck but the furniture has all been messed on by the trees above. It is such a hot location that I would think the furniture would be... More

The weather in this part of the country tends to be hot and dry most of the year, each of our guest tents is therefore equipped... More
