Samburu National Reserve, Kenya
Perched on the banks of the Ewaso Nyiro River in Samburu National Park, Elephant Bedroom Camp offers an authentic African bush experience with a touch of luxury. Surrounded by tall doum palms and regularly visited by elephants, monkeys and impalas, this camp oozes natural African charm.
All of the 12 luxury tents are nestled on raised decks, featuring wooden flooring, stretch canvas walls, warm décor, and curtains and lampshades to create a more homely feel – four of the tents have double beds, whilst eight have two twin beds. The tents’ spacious verandas, each with a private plunge pool, add to the luxurious feel. The two suites, Lapa (Moon) and Lakira (Star) have an extended deck area with larger plunge pool and a double sunbed.
The camp prides itself on its attention to detail, including the incredible food on offer. We love starting the day with an al fresco breakfast right by the river, and the four-course gourmet dinners set within a tent adorned with oil paintings are both diverse and delicious. The lounge area is cosy and rustic too, overlooking the rolling hills and the winding river.
The staff are very friendly and attentive – from incredible game drives and indulgent massages in the spa tent, to that much appreciated coffee and tea bought to your tent every morning, you’ll be sure to feel pampered during your stay.
