LOVELY CAMP WITH WILDLIFE ON THE DOORSTEP
Elephant Bedroom Camp was fabulous! Lovely views across the river and so much wildlife very close - elephants walked a few metres from the rooms. Lunch and breakfast were served outside overlooking the river and evening meals on the candlelit terrace. We stayed in Lapa - a beautiful room. The staff were all friendly and very helpful. Particular mention goes to Bernard the Manager, Moses the Barman, James and Peter - our drivers and guides, Chris our waiter and Martin and Lewis - guards.
LOVED our stay
Excellent staff (friendly, efficient, really great)! The atmosphere is beautiful and the whole experience was like a dream. Elephants walk in and out of the camp, and you can see monkeys from your porch! (sometimes ON the porch!) Highly recommend staying. Also the tents are very clean and well kept.
Lets begin with - I am not an outdoorsy camping kind of gal. This intro to camping (or should I say Glamping) was PERFECT!! The accomodations were well appointed, comfortable and very secure. I appreciated the safe in the room. The bed was comfortable and pillow ok. I never seemed to get the water hot in shower - but didn't matter was good pressure and refreshing. There was plenty of water for drinking and brushing teeth. The tent was large airy and with good mosquito netting. The staff was outstanding. I wish I could remember all their names - Eric the chef served up fabulous breakfast, lunch and dinner. Jack, our waiter took very good care of us. Our favorite person was the sling shot warrior - Penini, who kept us safe for the squirrels and the elephants. Yes, I said squirrels - I HATE squirrels and they know it, I swear they purposely torment me - he was great chasing them away at lunch. It was our favorite location - we loved everywhere we stayed but this was #1.
Amazing ,lots of things to talk about let’s start by the camp the location is great very close the famous uwasonyiro river the main dependent for all the animals so from the camp the sceneries are amazing ,food is great very delicious,the luxury tented camp is very clean and well set facing the river where animals comes to drink water Finally the staff are very reliable and helpful with great smile on their face ,so while In samburu game reserve where nature defiles itself that’s the place to stay 😊
Our third stay in the best hotel in the world. I left my heart there - again.
We adore staying in Elephant Bedroom. Where else can you get elephants wandering close by your lunch table or right by your tent!! On top of that, the staff are lovely and attentive, the food is amazing, and the camp is right in the heart of Samburu reserve so it is easy to see a wealth of other animals. This time we saw at least two different leopards several times, lions with two small babies, cheetah with small babies and another with larger babies, a caracal (!wow!), and of course the amazing elephants. Get up early, go out as early as your driver will take you (we always left at 6am) and you stand a good chance of being the only car watching a pride of lions or a strolling leopard. There are several elephants which visit the camp regularly (including Obama who comes several times a day and always seems to interrupt lunch), but this time we also had a group of other elephants who came to drink in the river with a small baby, and they walked right by our tent. Make sure you always zip and lock the tent, even when you are in it, as the monkeys stole my bag of tea bags one afternoon while I was asleep and my husband popped in to use the bathroom! Our only complaint is the rubbish WiFi which meant we had to pay our bill in dollars instead of by credit card as the machine didn't work. Luckily we had enough with us. I hope to be back again one day.
