Situated on the banks of the Ewaso Nyiro River, in heart of the Samburu National Reserve, the Elephant Bedroom Camp offers a unique African safari experience in a luxury, tented setting. Stay in spacious tents that are surrounded by doum palms and other beautiful indigenous trees which attract almost-daily visits by a herd of elephant.

Go on early morning and afternoon game drives to explore the incredible Samburu National Reserve, well known for its lion and leopard sightings. Enjoy a guided nature walk for a more intimate experience of the African bush. Interact with the local Samburu people, learn about their fascinating culture and treat yourself to a performance of traditional dancing.
