Elephant Bedroom Camp Fly-In Safari

Luxury on the banks of a river

Set on the banks of the Ewaso Nyiro River in the renowned Samburu Game Reserve, surrounded by palms and other beautiful indigenous trees lays this small and intimate tented camp with simplistic elegance, luxury and style. Inspired by the textures and colours of African nature, each of the 12 beautifully appointed tents surround you with luxury. The en-suite bathrooms are fitted with hot & cold running water, rain showers, flushing toilets and. Individual verandas encourage guests to linger while admiring the lush wilderness of the area. Spend two nights here (or more if you wish) exploring the Samburu National Park, spotting the incredible wildlife on game drives or from the camp as the animals wander along the banks of the river or even cross it. Then relaxing under the stars in the evening with excellent food freshly prepared for you. After a wonderful safari, why not add on a beach stay on the pristine white sands of the Kenyan coast or on the beautiful nearby islands of Zanzibar and Pemba, just off Tanzania.
