Elephant Watch Camp sits on the northern bank of the Ewaso Nyiro River, a few miles upstream from Dr Iain Douglas-Hamilton’s Save the Elephants Research
Center. There are five spacious desert-style tents with en suite bathrooms. The mess tent is decorated with local fabrics and dead acacia furniture
knocked down by the elephants!
The camp lies in the heart of northern Kenya’s elephant country and from here you have unprecedented access to Samburu’s 66 elephant families. The
camp is run by Oria Douglas-Hamilton who has been working alongside her husband Iain in elephant conservation for 30 years. There are three professional
elephant trackers in camp.
Activities include trailblazing elephant walks, tracking of elephant from the research camp, and visits to local Samburu projects.
