"Elephant Bedroom review"
It was very hot and still while we were there, but the camp was appealing and the wildlife sightings were superb. And Samburu was beautiful beyond belief!" See all these reviews: 12n in Kenya
Elephant Bedroom Camp is brilliantly located for the game and has a superb location on the river for watching elephants crossing and was probably the best option in the Park for us, although with its large number of tents all close together and its 'lodge' feel, it is not our preferred style. We had the far end tent which was great as it was open to the bush on one side." See all these reviews: 10n in Kenya
"Elephant Bedroom Camp"
The accommodation was very comfortable: in our case, 2 double beds in a large safari-style tent with a bathroom (hot and cold water) at the back. At the front there was a deck with a plunge pool for cooling off when it became too hot, and which also afforded good views of one of our nocturnal elephant visitors, as he munched his way through the adjacent vegetation. It was also good for bird watching, but beware leaving anything out as the monkeys will be quick to come investigating!
The food was excellent, with amazing meals coming out of the camp kitchen under the guidance of Francis, the head chef. The staff were all helpful, courteous and attentive, and our guides (Anthony and James) were well-informed and knowledgable. We had some good game drives, including 5 leopard sightings, which were a direct result of our guides' local experience." See all these reviews: 5n in Kenya
"Elephamt Bedroom Camp"
The camp is unfenced so was regularly visited by elephants with resident dwarf mongoose, many birds etc. The tents were spacious and comfortable, with hot water day and night. The meals were always good and, in the evening, were served in a delightful candle-light setting. Our driver/guide, Anthony, was enthusiastic and knowledgeable and gave us some splendid game drives with lots of action including a rare sighting of a caracal.
We enjoyed our 3 nights there immensely." See all these reviews: 8n in Kenya
