EXCLUSIVE, INTIMATE & PRIVATE
At the heart of the Elephant Watch Portfolio (EWP) are two private luxury lodges, Olerai House and Elephant Watch Camp, an exquisite family home, Sirocco, a self-catering Cabin, and a tailor-made Boutique Safaris business. The portfolio, founded by Oria Douglas-Hamilton, a native Kenyan of Italian and French extraction, has grown out of her passionate love of Africa, its people and wildlife. Each lodge has its own particular character and style. Come and enjoy our hospitality, with its delicious food, its tranquillity, its Afro-Italian chic – and the great outdoor adventure that beckons from beyond.
WHO WE ARE
WHAT WE DO
At EWP we aspire to use eco-tourism to improve livelihoods and reinforce the conservation ethic of traditional cultures to protect and preserve wild areas and animals. Our eco-philosophy informs our work, and we strive to minimize our footprint and do no harm. We believe that development is welcome, but not at the automatic expense of the ancient ways of nomadic people whose understanding of the wild environment is second to none. The continued well-being of our planet is part of our responsibility as decent beings to protect for the benefit of our children and all creatures, who we believe have an intrinsic right to exist with or without man.
