Elephant Watch Camp

Home to Dr Iain and Oria Douglas-Hamilton, founders of the Save the Elephants charity, Elephant Watch Camp was born from Oria’s love of elephants and conservation.

Set on the banks of the Ewaso Nyiro river, the six ensuite tents are crafted from natural materials, including trees felled by elephants. The camp follows a strict eco-philosophy; all electricity comes from the sun, food is locally sourced or grown on an organic farm in Naivasha and waste is carefully recycled. An intimate safari experience, the unfenced camp is frequented by wildlife and local herds of elephants allow the camp’s open-sided vehicles to drive among them. Hike up Ololokwe Mountain, visit the Save the Elephants centre, watch the sunset in the bush, visit a Samburu village and immerse yourself in the wildlife surrounding this rustic and personal eco-lodge.
