Stayed three nights here on safari. This is a gorgeous camp, and extremely well run. Every detail is attended to. Food is excellent. The manager takes a great interest in his clients, and creates a lively atmosphere. We loved sitting round the fire, star gazing. Hippos came and ate outside our tent at night. We had a tent that didn't... More

We had an unforgettable stay at Elephant Pepper Camp and will always remember the 5 nights we stayed there. In the midst of the African bush we felt out of this world, away from the craziness of the modern world and thus could truly relax and recharge our batteries. The unpretentious luxury of the Camp combines perfectly all amenities you... More

Wow! We stayed 3 nights (far too short) a family of four. It felt like Out of Africa, the tents were beautifully furnished overlooking the plains filled with wildlife. We were treated like kings by attentive staff, brilliant chefs who cooked up delicious meals which you would expect in a five star restaurant but not in the middle of the... More

We stayed at Elephant pepper camp for four nights. We are a family of 6 , our youngest 13. It was a fabulous stay and we just loved the tented camp.

We stayed here for 3 nights and every day was amazing.

EPC is located in Mara North Conservancy - By now the conservancies near the Masai Mara offer a much better game viewing experience than the Masai Mara itself. This conservancy is very private, just a few other vehicles. Then off course Elephant Pepper is a lovely tented camp where you can experience the real safari. We love to book it... More

My husband and I stayed at EPC for 4 nights early march. This is our 5th safari and I have to say that the game in the Northern Conservancy is above all expectancy, even compared with Masaai Mara itself. Everything seems to be just there right outside the camp. We had tent no 1, the honeymoon tent which is the... More

Unfortunately we only stayed for one night. Big mistake! Elephant Pepper is the quintessential African tented camp. Located in a prime spot on the verge of the open planes, in the Mara North conservancy, there is so much wildlife to see from the lounge and dining tents. As we checked in a hungry lioness walked no more than 250 metres... More
