Elephant Watch Camp


... is located in Samburu National Park in the Central Region of Kenya.

This wonderful camp is in an excellent riverside location, with a wide range of wildlife and a particular leaning towards elephants. It is owned by renowned pioneers in elephant conservation, Iain and Oria Douglas-Hamilton and is currently run and often personally hosted by their daughter, BBC wildlife presenter Saba Douglas Hamilton and her wonderful Samburu staff from the local community. It is a very stylish and environmentally sensitive lodge, with just six guest suites and no minimum child age.

The main potential downsides include the fact that the camp is expensive, relatively simple and outdoorsy. Perhaps of more concern is the sporadic heavy visitor traffic in Samburu, with the potential for vehicle clusters on major sightings.
