Ithumba camp is an exclusive stylishly rustic hideaway, designed for the intrepid traveller who relishes being off the beaten track, with big skies, star-studded nights and a rich array of fascinating species in the surrounding wild landscape.

Located on the north of Tsavo East, above the Galana River and situated between bush and acacia trees.

Based at the foot of Ithumba Hill with commanding views across the Yatta Plateau, guests can immerse themselves in the sounds of nature whilst close by is the Ithumba Reintegration Unit

This camp belongs to the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust and primarily reserved for it donors.

Donators can visit the elephant orphans in the near by Ithumba station two times a day and they will enjoy even the midday mud-bath and the feeding of the lovely elephant orphan!

It really is a unique as you get to interact with the elephants completely in the wild.

During the evenings you will have an opportunity to enjoy the solitude at night, listening to stories of the bush told by the guides.

On your arrival to Ithumba camp you will be led to the mud baths to meet the orphans and ex-orphans that don’t require milk anymore and are usually around 8 years old.
