We spent a night here as 3 couples. It was amazing! Elephants right outside your room. No fence whatsoever but felt very safe. And very one with nature. Beautifully done tents. Good food. We'd return again.

This was one of the highlights of my stay in Kenya. We stayed in tents that were very comfortable and well appointed. Your electricity is on at three hour intervals but that just ads to the romance of this "camp" The staff couldn't have been nicer or more helpful. I loved the way they would always accompany you to your...

Elephant Bedroom is an oasis in Samburu! One of the best features of the beautiful rooms is the little dip pool on the front porch. After a hot, dusty safari, it was so nice to cool off and watch wildlife wander up the riverbank. Despite a drought, there were plenty of elephants and other animals to be seen and at...

Very friendly service and good amenities in the tent. Front service in restaurant needs tighter control. Food excellent. Game drive excellent. Game walk middling. Staff may seem difficult concerning walking around alone, but the elephants really walk through the camp and when they have little ones, they have no fear!

Thank you to Julius and the team at Elephant Bedroom Camp for a great experience! We saw lots of animals (including the elusive leopard - twice!), the meals were very good and accommodating to some special dietary requirements, and the tents were spacious and well appointed. The plunge pool was a nice break in the afternoon to cool off when...

We were met on time at the small airstrip about half an hour from the camp, and taken on a short game drive as we went to the camp. The staff are extremely friendly and know the park so well. Julius and James, the drivers, are fantastic, none better. Julius found great game for us to see. The plunge pool...

The facilities and staff at elephant bedroom was very nice. It was a truly amazing experience to stay so close to the animals and to be able to see elephants, baboons, zebras, and giraffes just from the bedroom.

Lions, jaguar, cheetah, elephant, giraffe... so many great animals and birds to see here. The park is smaller and Elephant Bedroom guides are phenomenal. We felt like we were the only ones in the park.
