Actually this was our second trip to Samburu Kenya. My travel agent Wild trek Safari recommended this camp for unique experience. This is 12 Swiss tents in the camp on the river bank...

Wonderful location with comfortable tented rooms and friendly efficient staff and good safari food. Highlight elephants walking through the camp to disrupt breakfast. Peaceful riverside location....relaxing on balcony between safaris a delight.

Eating breakfast, and being asked to step aside because 'Sam is coming' was the best thing ever! Sam is the frequently visiting elephant that roams through the camp. A gentle giant, and staff is always there to ensure safety of guests and the elephants. The tents were extremely roomy and comfortable and border the river, which draws the attention of...

Upon arriving at the remarkable and engaging camp, the first notice was that elephants have temporarily altered our dining arrangements! A young bull, intent on harvesting the fallen fruit of the Dr. Seuss-like doum palm had taken over the riverside dining area to munch on his own one course meal! My grandsons were delighted beyond measure, and the cautious and...

It is very difficult to find fault with this lodge. Food very good for such an isolated place. Friendly staff, nice rooms and we had to move from our breakfast tables while an elephant walked through the camp.

Really enjoyed our days at Elephant bedroom. Friendly staff, good food, fantastic game drives but also so good to just hang around at the lodge by the elephants. You can't get enough of the view, just sitting there watch the river is great.

This was a great camp. The accommodations were very nice and the staff was very considerate. The camp is located in a beautiful area with fast access to large number of different animals. Game drives can be dusty but that should be expected.
