Elephant Bedroom: An Intimate And Spectacular Classic Safari Camp On The Banks Of The Ewaso Ngiro River
Elephant Bedroom Camp is an intimate and spectacular classic safari camp deep in the Samburu National Reserve on the banks of the Ewaso Ngiro River under a canopy of riverine forest and doum palms. Elephant Bedroom offers guests an authentic African safari experience surrounded by the fantastic wildlife and birdlife of Kenya's Samburu National Reserve.
It is not uncommon for elephants to meander through the camp, and for birders, the birdlife in camp is rather good; always have that camera fully charged and ready to go.
A stay here is more about the wildlife experience of the Samburu than of the luxuries in camp, but on saying that, Elephant Bedroom Camp has everything that one would possibly desire, including private plunge pools, WiFi, large tented suites and delicious cuisine. What more could one ask for?
Guests at Elephant Bedroom can expect to partake in guided bush walks, game drives, lectures on Samburu culture, sundowners and bush breakfasts, as well as cultural visits. Entertainment by the local Samburu people will be sure to keep guests of all ages captivated.
Twelve large tented suites are available at Elephant Bedroom, each with a wooden verandah, plunge pool, outdoor seating area, king-sized or twin bed configurations, and en-suite bathrooms with flushing toilets, double washbasins, running water (hot and cold), as well as a shower.
All tented suites offer up fantastic views out over the river and surrounding bushveld.
The culinary experience at Elephant Bedroom Camp is based around an al-fresco breakfast, 3-course lunch and 4-course candlelit gourmet dinner. Dining locations are varied and include the indoor dining area, the wooden verandah, and the Ewaso Ngiro River or out in the surrounding bushveld.
Of particular interest;
- Bush breakfasts

Dietary requests can be catered for with advanced notice.
The tented central guest area plays host to an indoor dining area, bar and lounge (with a small library), leading outdoors to a large shaded wooden verandah that offers incredible views of the Ewaso Ngiro River and Samburu bushveld.
Birdlife surrounding the camp is rather good, and birders will delight in what can be spotted while sitting on the main viewing deck with a beer in hand.
Facilities in the central guest area include;
- 240V Charging facilities in the lounge
- Wi-Fi and internet facilities
Vast herds of elephants, numerous prides of lions or the solitary leopard, amongst other plains game, are regular visitors around the camp, providing excellent game viewing in the spectacular scenic background of rugged rolling hills.

Kenya safari ambassador tributeIn memoriam Honey; Honey was famous for jumping into vehicles to obtain a better view of her idyllic world - the Masai Mara Game Reserve. This special cheetah was killed on the 17th of February 2007 in full view of her three remaining cubs.
Impressions Of KenyaKenya’s wildlife remains at the heart of its attractions, yet there is much more to discover in this fascinating country outside the game reserves. You can climb the slopes of Mount Kenya to find tropical ice on the Equator, or explore the coral reefs of the Mombasa coast.
Explore The Masai Mara By BalloonIt was one of those rare moments where you take in the majesty of nature in complete silence, disturbing nothing, saying nothing. In Kenya last month, I had the great pleasure of a balloon safari over the Masai Mara organised by the excellent and highly professional Governors Company.
Giraffe Manor ReviewLocated in the southern suburbs of Nairobi is an English manor house. When it was built, the country was unclaimed bush rampant with African wildlife. The home of Karen Blixen is nearby who posthumously lends her name to this suburb, Karen.
Hells Gate KenyaI had visions of being trampled by buffalo, stalked by lions, or, given the extreme humidity and daytime temperatures, falling prey to one of the thousands of vultures who call Hell's Gate National Park their home. But our guide assured me that it would be fun.
