Why we love it
Aside from the abundant wildlife and the surreal setting, there is something above all else that sets Somalisa apart. Famous for its up-close encounters with elephants, the camp features an elephant pool less than a stone’s throw from the extensive decking. Take a dip in your pool while your neighbouring local elephants bathe in synchrony mere metres away.
