Elephant Watch Camp
Elephant Watch is the ultimate in eco-luxury and an unrivalled wildlife experience, thanks to long links with pioneering elephant conservation in Kenya’s Samburu National Reserve.
Elephant Watch is run on keen eco-principles; their electricity comes from the sun, food is locally-sourced food from the foothills of Mt. Kenya or the family’s organic farm in Naivasha, and all waste is carefully managed and recycled. Even the six ensuite tents are crafted from all-natural materials, including trees felled by elephants. The camp is closely connected to Save the Elephants, whose pioneering conservation work you’ll see and experience during your stay. Money from eco-tourism allows wildlife areas to flourish, all the while creating jobs for local staff, and funding the schools their children attend, which helps save wildlife.
Years spent among Samburu’s elephants mean that the herds are now so habituated to the specially modified open vehicles and expert guides, that they allow visitors right into the heart of their family groups. Guides are also experts on the big cats and are part of a Lion Watch monitoring programme that gets you first on the scene. Other experiences include spending precious time with the nomadic Samburu communities or taking a three-day camel trek, camping out each night under the stars, finishing at Elephant Watch Camp for a well-earned rest, hot shower and fine food.
