Kenya

Elephant Bedroom Camp

PLAN MY TRIP

Set along the verdant banks of the Ewaso Nyiro River, Elephant Bedroom Camp tempts guests with its splendid riverine beauty and inviting luxury.

Accommodations at the camp consist of 12 spacious tents with rustic, colorful African touches either on ground level or platforms raised on poles. Eight of the tents are furnished with queen-sized beds, while the other four tents come with king-sized beds all dressed in crisp, white linens. Each tent enjoys the added amenities of electricity, hot and cold running water, flush toilets, double basin his and hers sinks, soft cotton bathrobes and slippers, and herbal shower and bath products. For the ultimate in extravagant game viewing, each tent has its own secluded deck where guests can soak in the wild beauty of the lush woodlands of acacia and doum palm trees or watch the wildlife from the refreshing comfort of their private plunge pool.

The camp is located in the magnificent Samburu National Reserve, an area well-known for its leopard and lion populations. The Reserve is also famous for its abundance of rare northern species known as the Special Big Five such as the Grevy zebra, Somali ostrich, reticulated giraffe, gerenuk, and the Beisa oryx. It is a place where the dry plains are bisected by the Ewaso Nyiro River and framed by the dramatic views of Mt. Kenya. The lodge gets its name from the palm trees that surround the lodge whose palm nuts are a favorite treat of the elephants, after all the reserve is home to about 900 of them. Besides the elephants, monkeys, and impalas are frequent visitors to the camp.

Activities at the lodge include game drives in an open vehicle where guests can view the Big Five game animals or the Samburu Special Big Five. Because of its river-sided position, there is a good chance to spot Nile crocodiles basking in the mud. Naturalist guides lead informative bush walks where they demonstrate tracking techniques as well as which plants are used for making traditional medicines. Bush breakfasts and dinners are popular options. Other activities include picnics, sundowners, cultural visits to local villages, or demonstrations by Samburu warriors.

The camp centers around a main reception tent with comfortable seating and an adjoining bar. Fresh breezes waft up from the river and through the open front and mesh net windows of the dining room. Though the delicious food prepared at the camp holds its own allure and aroma. Breakfasts and lunches are served al fresco style on the riverbanks under the shade of the palm and acacia trees. While dinners are served under the stars. Guests may also enjoy a private meal served on their veranda. Extra luxuries available at the camp are massages in the Safari spa and free Wi-Fi.
