Review

The name of this camp says it all! Located inside Samburu National Reserve, along the Ewaso Nyiro River, Elephant Bedroom Camp regularly sees herds of elephant come down to the river, through the camp and even passed your bedroom! Walking through the majestic doum palms, the camp has a real ‘safari feel’ to it, with comfortable canvased tents and a classic candlelit alfresco dining area. The camp is one of our Samburu favourites and is fantastic value for money!

Location

The camp is sat in a prime location inside Samburu National Park. Each room has a spectacular view of the Ewaso Nyiro River, as it meanders through the dry plains of the park, providing water for a diversity of animals. Elephant sightings in particular, are incredible, as huge herds cross through the elephant corridors from the park to Mount Kenya daily.

Layout

The main mess area gives an immediate African and safari feel, with a perfect balance of comfort, design and natural lighting. Whilst dinner is served on the verandah of the main mess tent under the stars, breakfast and lunch are served on the stunning river bank. On either side of the mess tent, there are 12 tents positioned in a row, all raised on individual wooden platforms and all directly facing the river.

Rooms

The spacious, en-suite tents are comfortable and traditional. The large beds and furniture are simple and rustic and the hanging beads, separating the bedroom and bathroom, are a beautiful African touch, reflecting the traditional outfits of the Samburu people. Offering further comforts, each tent has its own private plunge pool on the deck, electricity all day and night, hot and cold running water and complimentary herbal shower and bath products.

Activities

The camp is sat in the heart of the game in Samburu National Park so the safari starts from the minute you step foot in the safari vehicle. There are a range of activities including game drives, guided bush walks, cultural visits, lectures on Samburu culture, entertainment by local Samburu warriors, bush breakfasts, picnic lunches and sundowners.
