What you'll do

Witness the majestic elephants of Kenya with a Samburu warrior as your travel guide.

Your guide personally knows the caretakers at the elephant center, who will take us to meet the orphaned calves and watch the elephants at feeding time and while they play at the watering hole. Our experienced guide will tell us Samburu elephant lore and explain why the tribe is so deeply connected to the elephants they share their land with.

We’ll meet at and depart from Sabache camp, located on a private wildlife reserve owned by the indigenous Samburu tribe.
