Elephant Watch Safaris
Samburu National Reserve
About Elephant Watch Safaris
This exotic camp is perched on the sand banks of the Ewaso Ngiro River, beneath wide-spreading kigelia trees and acacia elatiors. It is home to some of the largest bulls in Samburu which can often be seen in the river, resting under an acacia tree or picking pods beside the Tents.
Our six specially designed tents are made for maximum coolness, privacy, and protection. Each Tent hangs under a wide thatched roof with its own veranda. Each bathroom has plenty of cool air and sun-heated water. Laundry is hand washed and ironed daily with a charcoal heated iron.
Relax on luxurious cushion-filled sofas and chairs built from twisted acacia branches collected from trees felled by elephants. Aromas of fresh herbs grilling over delicious food drift in from the kitchen. The power supplied to all our lanterns and lamps are run off solar panels. Everything at Elephant Watch is very simple and our goal is to make your stay as comfortable, fun and as stress-free as possible.
Our specialized guides meet their guests at the airfield and drive them gently through the reserve, spending time with many of our well-known elephant families, as well as introducing them to some of the particular northern inhabitants. An elaborate picnic lunch is served by the river in proximity of the elephants and eventually guests arrive at camp and are welcomed by a line of tall, slim Samburu warriors holding cool drinks. They will accompany guests to the huge mess tent which is hung with swathes of brightly coloured material floating in the wind.
A 30% non-refundable deposit secures a booking and the balance is payable 35 days prior to arrival. There is a supplement charge of $40 per person per night between Christmas and New Year. We charge $25 per person per day for a service charge and taxes.
