From the moment we were met off our plane at the Mara North landing strip by Francis to the morning George took us back four days later everything was perfect. On arrival I was so overwhelmed by the setting I'm afraid I shed a tear or two! The tents which were all brand new for this year were fabulous with... More

We stayed at EPC for 3 nights in July and it was wonderful. From here we had 3 nights in the Northern Serengeti in Tanzania and let me tell you it's got nothing compared to the Mara North. The country is simply beautiful. The camp as good as any we stayed in. The food was delicious and the bar is... More

This safari camp truly earns the high ratings and reviews. Peter and Danielle are outstanding hosts providing a wonderful safari experience and one we will cherish forever. The tents are all very nicely appointed and the food is exceptional at every meal. We visited the camp in September and were fortunate enough to be there during the Wildebeast migration. Tip:...

We traveled to Elephant Pepper Camp in September 2014 for a three night stay. There are no words to express how much I loved staying here. The camp, the staff, the guides, the food everything was amazing. Daniella and Peter the Managers made us feel so at home. From the surprise Sundowners, to the amazing bush breakfasts everything was just... More

The whole trip was amazing from the moment we stepped off the bush plane and James, our driver, took us on our first game drive with Gin and Tonics or wine as we sat and watched the lions at sundown. Every day and every meal was amazing. My granddaughter had her 16th birthday while we were there and they made... More

Elephant Pepper Camp was the fifth of seven stops on the faultless itinerary we planned and booked directly with Cheli & Peacock Safaris (www.chelipeacock.com), and it's a beautiful place with a romantic feel and look of times gone by.

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
