Elephant Watch exotic 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 bulls in Samburu which 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. At dawn a gentle chorus echoes overhead announcing a new day in the wild.

Elephant Watch 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, for example there is no waste, no pollution and no noise.

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. Elephants are never far away, often within hot breathe distance - be careful! But Samburu warriors escort guests after dark and keep watch throughout the night.

Elephant watching begins on arrival. Our specialised 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 Zebras, Beisa Oryx, over 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 coloured material floating in the wind.
