Elephants on safari

3 Day Safari Itinerary

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 indigenous trees, lies this small but stylish tented camp. Simple yet elegant, and inspired by the textures and colours of African nature, each of the 12 beautifully appointed tents surround you with luxury; the ensuite bathrooms are fitted with hot and cold running water, rain showers and flushing toilets; and individual verandahs 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 animals wander along the banks of the river or even cross it. Relax under the stars in the evening with excellent food freshly prepared for you.

After a memorable safari, why not extend your holiday by adding a beach stay on the pristine white sands of the Kenyan coast or on the beautiful nearby islands of Zanzibar or Pemba, just off Tanzania. Call our Destination Specialists to discuss your perfect tailor made itinerary.
