Elephant Watch Camp situated in the dry north of Kenya, in a land of endless rugged beauty and untamed wilderness. Elephant Watch Camp is perched on the banks of the Ewaso Nyiro river beneath wide-spreading Kigelia and Acacia trees in Samburu National Reserve. It is home to some of the largest elephant bulls in Samburu who can often be spotted cooling down in the riverbed, resting in the shade, or hoovering up seedpods beside the tents.

Their six spacious, netted tents at Elephant Watch Camp are specially designed to catch the breeze and ensure maximum privacy and protection. Each tent hangs under a wide thatched roof with it’s own verandah and stunning view. Inside, soft flowing cloths cascade to the floor that can be drawn across the windows at night. The walls are a mix of canvas and netting which keeps bugs out but allows in the sounds and scents of the wild.
Over the years, we have found many exciting ways to get out into the wilderness and really experience all it has to offer. Now, they want to offer you the fruits of that knowledge. While staying at Elephant Watch Camp, their guides will discuss with you what you would like to do each day, and tweak plans according to your mood and their recommendations. They are in regular communication with conservation researchers and rangers across Samburu National Reserve. This makes sure you are involved with every exciting development, and are the first to arrive on the scene.
This is the core activity for elephant watching as a vehicle provides the safest platform to take you right into the middle of the herds. They have a small fleet of specially modified four-wheel-drives that give you the best and safest vantage point. Their drivers and guides are trained to approach animals respectfully so as not to disturb them.
Elephant Watch Camp Reviews
“Camping in Samburu’s (beautiful) riverside site we phoned to see if the lodge would let us come for a meal. Despite being hundreds of miles away in Nairobi, Saba organised everything very efficiently and even pulled a few necessary strings. We have seldom, if ever, come across higher quality food and better service and we travel for a living! One meal turned into every meal. The lodge is in a delightful spot by the river too.” – gugu m
“This was my second visit and I treasure every moment. Undoubtedly Samburu’s best camp with the best team and the best elephants (plus giant crocs and Spitting Cobras too!). Thank you Elephant Watch Camp for a truly amazing experience!” – Ambrose C
“If you want to have the elephant experience of your lifetime, this is the place. We have been here twice and just love it. To sit out in the bush with 48 elephants walking by without being bothered by your presence! The camp is small and you feel at home. It is like a family. You are well looked after by a very helpful and nice staff. The food is excellent!! Margareta and Per Ödman, Onsala, Sweden” – perodman
