Elephant Watch Camp is perched on the banks of the Ewaso Nyiro River, beneath wide-spreading Kigelia and Acacia elatior trees. It is home to some of the largest elephant bulls in Samburu who can often be spotted cooling down in the river bed, resting in the shade, or picking up seed pods beside the tents.
Under thatched roofs, a blaze of colour welcomes you to our eco-friendly Camp, cleverly built out of recycled trees and logs. A multitude of birds and monkeys flash overhead, and at dawn a gentle chorus echoes through the bush announcing a new day in the wild.Our six spacious, netted tents are especially designed to catch the breeze, and to ensure maximum privacy and protection. Each tent hangs under a wide thatched roof with it’s own verandah and stunning view.Inside, soft flowing cloths cascade to the floor that can be drawn across the windows at night. Each room has a king-size bed with crisp cotton sheets, side tables, books, bedside lamps that run on solar, crisp clean towels, a kanga bath robe (designed by Oria) and a “bush cupboard” with hand painted hangars. The bathroom is en-suite but under the stars. Clothes are hand washed, pressed to perfection with a hot-coal iron, and returned the same day.
We use beautifully painted buckets filled to the brim with sun-heated water (hand-pumped from the camp well), and you can wrap up after your hot shower in a colourful kanga robe. Monkeys peek down through the leaves and elephants are never far away. It’s heavenly! But you need to remember there are no fences in our camp, so be careful when walking between tents! After dark, to ensure your safety, Samburu warriors will be your personal escort and will keep watch throughout the night.
