Elephant Bedroom Camp (Samburu Game Reserve) Kenya
Set on the banks of the Ewaso Nyiro River in the renowned
Samburu Game Reserve, surrounded by palms and other
beautiful indigenous trees lies this small and intimate
tented camp with simplistic elegance, luxury and style.
Elephant Bedroom Camp promises an astonishing safari experience as the name of the camp couldn’t be more fitting. At night elephants, buffalos and hippos roam through the camp in search for food and water and hearing them from the warmth of your duvet covered bed is a truly exciting and memorable experience.
The camp has 12 spacious tents – the main “room” is 50m2 - set on raised wooden decks. Four have king-size beds; the others have twin queen-size beds. Tents are attractively furnished, with floor-length curtains, rustic sofa, dressing table, bedside and coffee tables and striking standing lamps. Each has spacious private facilities with double basins, herbal toiletries, electricity and a deck, with plunge pool, overlooking the river – which is a magnet for the wildlife.
The tented, open-front lounge faces the river and provides a choice of comfortable sofas and armchairs. You can also watch the river from the dining area, the hammocks hung between the trees or the seating on the riverbank. Elephant Camp has a well-stocked bar.
Breakfast and the three-course lunch are generally taken outdoors. Dinner is a four-course, candlelit affair and may be served in the open-front dining area or under the bright skies. Our clients praise both the food and the service here.
Elephant Bedroom is a luxury safari camp and the activities focus on the life of Samburu National Reserve. Game drives are in open-side 4WD safari vehicles and the guiding is of a high standard. Your morning game drive may end with an amazing bush breakfast, and the evening game drive will pause for sundowners as the sun sets over the rugged landscape.
You can get a closer, more direct experience of the bush on a guided bush walk. If you are interested in Samburu culture, the camp offers cultural visits and you will be mesmerized by the Samburu morans. A particular feature of Elephant Bedroom is the lectures on Samburu culture by the resident naturalist. Over 365 bird species have been identified, including secretary birds, sunbirds, bee-eaters and the blue necked and legged Somali ostrich.
When to go:
When to go: The best months for travelling to Kenya are June through the end of October and then December through the end of March.
If you are wanting to see the Great Migration then I suggest the months of July, August and September, these are also the busiest times along with the Christmas holidays as this is when school holidays fall.
If you prefer to travel when the game is still superb but it is not so busy then I recommend the following months, June, September, October, November, February, March, April and May!
