Going to Kenya had been on our bucket list for as long as I can remember! Our travel agent recommended Elephant Pepper Camp as the second part of an 8-day safari and I am so glad she did! We stayed at Elephant Pepper Camp during mid-November 2012. It was the day after Thanksgiving and we really lucked out with the... More

We stayed at Elephant Pepper Camp in September 2012 for the first part of our honeymoon. I'm probably going to echo what everyone else has said, as this camp was amazing. We stayed in the honeymoon tent, which our agent got as a free upgrade and it was fab. Huge tent, comfortable bed, a veranda opening onto the plains, just... More

This was by far and away the best part of our African holiday, and I can thoroughly recommend anyone going to Kenya and wanting to see the Masai Mara that Elephant Pepper is a superb way to do it. We were completely spoiled, in part as we managed to get to camp when there was only 1 or 2 other... More

You are in the wild. Elephants outside our tent! Monkeys on the roof of the tent. Game drives into the heart of the Mara with wildlife at every turn. Hippos, cheetah, leopards, elephants, giraffe just never stopped. Our boys (4 & 7) loved every moment as did we. Brilliant. Don't hesitate just book it! Patrick and Sophie made it all... More

What an excellent stay we had in Elephant Pepper this October. The tents were amazing, as the shower was too. It was unexpected that the showers could be that comfortable and that warm. A good welcome after our afternoon drives. The way Patrick, Sophie and staff tried to make something special of every breakfast, sundowner and dinner was amazing and... More

Stayed at the Elephant Pepper Camp in early Sept. The experience was wonderful. The tents are set in the trees and the sounds of the Elephants, Lions and Monkeys etc at night and walking next to our tent made for a special stay. Jenna - the interim manager, was terrific and made us feel so welcome. A great place to... More

Exactly what one imagines in a perfect wild-meets-luxury in a camp where the game viewing is abundant and the hosts are sensitive to guests. The return rate of guests, alone, speaks volumes. This a go-to destination. If we return to Kenya, Elephant Pepper would be one camp we would revisit.

We spent 4 nights at Elephant Pepper camp as part of a 10 day safari. It was our favorite camp. The tent and furnishings were very comfortable. The food was the best that we had on our trip. The Peacock lion pride of 13 was right outside our tents and roared all night, but Baba and the other Masai guards... More

I am not sure where to start. Shall I start with the fabulously comfortable vehicles that pick you from the airstrip, or the exceptionally knowledgeable guides that are on board. Or do I talk about being whisked off to see the cheetah and youngster 10 mins after arrival ? Or the warm and friendly welcome by the camp managers -... More
