General Facilities

    Laundry service


The dining area boasts vibrant safari colours and original oil paintings. The decor and soft intimate lighting create a wonderful atmosphere in which to enjoy dinner after a day out in the bush.

Tuck into alfresco breakfasts, 3-course lunches and 4-course candle-lit gourmet dinners either inside this welcoming dining area or out beneath the star-studded African skies.

For a special treat, set out early in the morning on a game drive and enjoy breakfast in a secluded spot in the heart of the Kenyan wilderness.


Elephant Bedroom Camp consists of only 12 tents, creating an intimate bush experience. Decorated in a rustic African fashion, your room offers all the amenities of a more modern bush camp, but with a warmer and more personal feel.

Out of the twelve tents, four are fitted with king-sized beds while the other eight have queen-sized beds. You'll always have running hot and cold water and electricity, as well as relaxing herbal bath products to enjoy.

"The lookout of the camp is a great place to just sit and watch animals. Being a bit elevated you can see for miles and and enjoy sundowners whilst animals roam all around you!"
