Elephant Pepper Camp is a step back in time but with modern comforts: an original bush camp, eco-friendly, and committed to finding a way of life that does not harm the wilderness. The homely atmosphere of this camp is part of its charm. You can relax with nature, no generators, no vehicles passing, no permanent structures jarring the skyline - just the sights and sounds of the bush completely surrounding you.
Situated right on the northern edge of the Masai Mara Reserve in the private Mara North Conservancy, Elephant Pepper Camp is tucked away in a prime wildlife area surrounded by the Mara’s ubiquitous game.
The camp has 10 large and spacious light canvas tents with en-suite dressing rooms, showers with hot running water, and flush toilets. These elegant tents are adorned with intricate brass fittings, dark woods and each has a private veranda where you can enjoy magnificent views of the unspoiled savannah - hopefully catching a glimpse of some of the area’s abundant wildlife roaming.
At the end of your day, take a peek out of your tent at the dazzling Kenyan night sky, undisturbed and aglow with stars, before climbing into your bed where the sounds of the bush send you into a blissful sleep.
The main dining/bar mess tent offers family style dining with a help-yourself bar. Looking out across the plains, you can see the ‘greatest game show on earth’ when the annual wildebeest migration thunders past to seek new grazing in the lush savannahs of the Masai Mara.
— You’ll be in the Mara North Conservancy, a private conservancy where only vehicles belonging to the camps within it have access, giving you a private and uninterrupted safari experience.
— Wildlife in this area is phenomenal - elephant, lion, cheetah, leopard, zebra, giraffe and buffalo (to name just a few species!) can all be found here.
— Younger safari-goers can enjoy tailored activities including nature walks, bow and arrow practice, learning to make fires or how to track animals, and even making casts of prints they find to take back home.
— If you want to see the Great Migration, a gathering of approximately two million grazing wildebeest and zebra, this is a perfect base.
— Elephant Pepper is an original bush camp, eco-friendly, committed to finding a way of life that does not harm the wilderness and revenue from the camp goes back to the local community.
