      Elephant Watch Safari Camp

      Stay Among the Titans

      Elephant Watch Safari 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 elephant bulls 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. Elephant watching begins on arrival. 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 - the slim-necked gerenuk, reticulated giraffe, Grevy’s zebras, beisa oryx, more than 350 resident birds with an extra 70 different migrant species. An elaborate picnic lunch is served by the river in proximity of the elephants and eventually guests arrive at camp welcomed by a line of tall, slim Samburu warriors holding cool drinks and will accompany you to the huge mess tent hung with swathes of brightly colored material floating in the wind. Relax in huge luxurious, cushion-filled sofas and Dali-esque 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. Our six specially designed netted tents are made for maximum coolness, breeze, privacy, and protection. Each tent hangs under a wide thatched roof with its own verandah. It flows with multicolored cotton cloth, has large beds, a work of art, crisp cotton sheets, soft pillows, nice lights, tables, books, a 'bush' cupboard for your clothes with hand-painted hangers and bath robes. In your tent bathroom, there is always plenty of cool and sun-heated water in the hand-painted buckets for washing and showers. Cold drinking mineral and filtered waters are in thermoses and bottles. Tea, coffee or fresh fruit juice are brought to your tent at dawn or later, as you wish. Anyone entering your compound with water or tea will rattle a camel bell outside your tent and all you have to say is karibu which means come in or welcome. Elephants can come very close - you do not need to fear them - just enjoy their presence. But remember not to go out to where they are eating or sleeping. Keep the right distance. To go from your tent to the mess tent, just call askari which means guard and he will accompany you. Lions, hyenas and leopards can be heard at night. Baboons will grunt and call out danger to each other. You will also soon learn to identify the bird sounds and at dawn a multiple serenade above your roof will call in the new day.
