This exotic ECO-camp is perched on the sand banks of the Ewaso Nyiro River, beneath wide spreading Kigelia trees and Acacia Elatiors. It is home to some of the largest bull elephants in Samburu who can often be spotted mudding in the river, resting under an acacia tree or picking pods beside the tents. The trees are filled with a multitude of birds and monkeys.

The camp, which is totally ECO in every way has been specially designed and constructed by Oria and her team of builders with a low footprint on the environment, for comfort and coolness.

Additional Activities

  • Visit a Samburu Village, the Save the Elephants Research Centre, Mount Kenya, or other nearby attractions. A day trip to Shaba national Reserve can be organised.


Elephant Watch can accommodate a maximum of twelve guests in six wide and breezy desert-type style tents, under thatch, and the sand floors covered in natural woven palm mats. The interiors are individually styled, draped with colourful cloth, unusual furniture and beds made from fallen trees. The bathrooms are built around a tree giving our guests a novel washing experience with painted buckets filled with sun-heated water (from the camp well) and watched over by spying monkeys from the treetop while you wrap up in a colourful kanga robe after a hot shower.
