Elephant Pepper Camp

Masai Mara Kenya
  • Elephant Pepper Camp

    Elephant Pepper Camp is in the heart of the Maasai Mara prime game viewing area. Only half an hour from the Mara River, most game viewing is conducted in the Mara North Conservancy core, right around the camp. This camp is situated next to a water hole, so in the dry periods there are a lot of plain's game around the camp. The grass around the camp is very high in salts, especially near the honeymoon tent where there are natural springs in the wetter times, so this attracts a lot of elephant that are free to roam around the camp at night time. This camp has been in the same location for 20 years, one of the original, very small and exclusive tented camps.

    The camps overlooks the vast open plains, teaming with game, especially during the migration and guests are encouraged to go on bush walks with an experienced guide to explore the savannah.

    At Elephant Pepper Camp you will be able to experience the bush as one should, because it has a very homely atmosphere with a maximum capacity of only 22 people, where everyone eats together and shares the beauty of the surroundings while relaxing around the campfire.

    The Masai Mara ecosystem is famous for its astounding variety and quantity of wildlife - Lion, Leopard, Cheetah, Hyena, Giraffe, Elephant, Buffalo, Wildebeest, Zebra and plenty more.

    In our opinion

    We think this camp is truly unique because of the following :

    Traditional style tented camp - Although extremely comfortable with spacious tents and en-suite bathrooms, the camp is very low key, with no generator to interfere with the sounds of the bush and resident lion pride! The camp has never poured one bag of cement and could be completely removed leaving a virgin site.

    Location - Hidden in a grove of elephant pepper trees, overlooking the Mara plains in the heart of Mara North Concervancy, Elephant Pepper Camp is in a prime but secluded game viewing area.

    Highly qualified guides - All of the guides at this camp have their Bronze Level KPSGA qualification and 2 of them have the impressive Silver Level KPSGA. Some of the guides have worked in this area for over 20 years.

    Unrivalled game drive vehicles - A brand-new fleet of spacious open-sided Land Cruisers. All vehicles feature enhancements specifically designed for comfort and photography, such as charging sockets and camera stands.
