A truely magical experience at this eco friendly unfenced safari camp. The back to nature tented accomodation does not sacrifice comfort in any way offering everything you can expect at a first rate hotel. The safari experience is second to none with the abundant game of the Mara North Conservancy, the knowledgeable safari guides and the great safari vehicles. The... More

We have just returned from 4 days at the Elephant Pepper Camp, and it was a huge experience. You really feel that you are in the middle of everything. The tents are very nice and spacious, and the hospitality of Patrick and his team was fantastic. We had some great game drives with our very knowledgeable driver. The food is... More

We spent a weekend at Elephant Pepper as a weekend break from Nairobi. Patrick and Sophie are great hosts and run a tight ship! The camp has rustic charm and the highlights are fantastic food and the moment your hot shower arrives in the evening! Our driver Boni was professional and knowledgable, and ensured that we saw everything- lion, leopard,... More

We just spent the last six nights and seven days at Elephant Pepper Camp on what was an amazing and fantastic trip. Elephant Pepper Camp is as good as it gets, boasting a fantastic location, beautiful wildlife, family-oriented hospitality and excellent facilities. There are ten luxury tents. Ours was one of the honeymoon/family tents, both of which are positioned at... More

As we live in Africa we have been lucky enough to go on a number of safaris but Elephant Pepper Camp has been the best. We have been with Cheli Peacock before to Lewa and on the back of that experience booked the Mara North Conservancy. The camp was a good balance between a true safari experience with no fences...

This was the last camp on our itinerary. The camp is cleverly hidden in the trees and apart from the mast you would not know of its existence. We were greeted by Patrick and Sophie on arrival and shown to our tents. Very spacious and airy with great bathrooms and loads of hot water. The best thing was sleeping with... More

We stayed in Elephant Pepper for 4 nights in December. The camp is newly renovated and everything looks nice. We were family of 5, and booked the family tent (3 beds in 1 'room' and 1 bed in another) and a single tent. The tents are comfortable (if rather draughty on the windy nights), beds are soft. Mosquito repellents, hot... More
