Couples, honeymoons & families
Elephant Bedroom Camp enjoys an enviable location in the heart of Samburu National Reserve. The camp’s 14 tented rooms are raised on platforms that are perched along the banks of the expansive Ewaso Nyiro river, with uninterrupted views across the water to Buffalo Springs National Reserve.
There is no age restriction at Elephant Bedroom Camp and family rooms are available for those who request them. This is also a great spot for couples and honeymooners looking to complement a safari in Laikipia and the Masai Mara as the landscape and wildlife is so vastly different.
From the patio of your room you can watch hippos and crocodiles float downstream, herds of elephants, giraffe and zebra traverse both land and water and enjoy a riot of colourful birdlife in the doum palms overhead.
The camp is unfenced so, as its name suggests, is often visited by wildlife and especially elephants. A few have become very familiar with the camp and staff and are very much at home here. In the mornings you’ll need to look where you’re walking as you may find a resident elephant ambling down the path in search of breakfast and in the heat of the day don’t be surprised to discover a sneaky trunk has found its way into the cool, delicious waters of your private plunge pool.
If you’re happy to share your space with these precious pachyderms then just beyond your doorstep you’ll also discover lions, leopard, reticulated giraffe, Oryx, Grevys’ zebra, gerenuk and other unique species on your twice game drives, bush walks and sundowners.
