Elephant Watch Camp
Elephant Watch Camp is a small owner run tented camp in the Samburu region of northern Kenya. The camp is beautifully located on the sand banks of the Ewaso Nyiro River, beneath big Kigelia trees and Acacia Elatiors. Dr. Iain Douglas-Hamilton, founder of Save the Elephants, and his wife Oria set up the camp after many years of studying elephants in Africa.
Accommodation & Facilities
This eco-friendly camp has just six individually styled tents with colorful cloth drapes and unusual furniture. Each tent has an en-suite bathroom built around a tree with flush toilets and bucket showers. Much of the furniture in the camp has been made from fallen trees, while locally woven mats provide comfort and color on the floors. The camp has a good range of books, films and information about elephants, and the kitchen serves meals prepared with fresh ingredients from the owners’ farm.
Wildlife & Activities
Game viewing activities are focused on elephants, and specialised guides introduce guests to the local elephant families, as well as showing them the other endemic species of northern Kenya. Guided bush walks and visits to the Save The Elephants research centre are also available, as well as hill-top sundowners and visits to the local Samburu people.
