Final visit for a month long safari in Kenya. I cannot say anything negative. The only words that come to mind are Wow, incredible, amazing, and unforgettable. The managers were great (Patrick and Sophie) as well as the staff. The hospitality and staff were simply amazing. Spent lots of time in the Mara seeing the most incredible sights. Wildlife was...

Very nice bush camp with amazing staff. We visited Elephant Pepper Camp with 6 people from Friday - Sunday. Having been disappointed with the Karen Blixen lodge, we were more than satisfied with the Elephant Pepper Camp. Luxurious and spacious tents, very friendly host and staff, good food (limited choice however) and a working wifi connection in the main area... More

Everything about Elephant Camp encourages you to consider it your home from home. All the staff here are genuinely committed to find ways to delight and pamper you. The tents are superbly well thought through and are well sighted to make sure that you enjoy this intimate location. We were lucky watch some local monkeys as they spotted and gave... More

Excellent camp with great hosts - Patrick and Sophie. Everything is comfortable and relaxing - mess/dining area is friendly and the food is delicious too. Easy access from Mara North airstrip - game drive right from being met. A MUST for your first visit to The Mara or indeed for the regular visitor, like us! Lots of close up sightings... More

My husband and I brought visiting family to Elephant Pepper and it was the PERFECT spot. Patrick and Sophie were the most brilliant of hosts, and our guide Boni could not have been better. The camp's location is fantastic, right in the middle of all the animal action. You really get an authentic "bush" experience combined with the most opulent... More

The last few minutes of the plane ride from Wilson Airport, Nairobi was over the Mara North Conservancy and gave us a bird's eye view at what awaited us across the varied beauty of this part of the Mara - plains and hills and valleys and the Mara River.
