It did not matter that the camp is in the Mara North Conservancy, 45 minutes' drive from the Mara Game Reserve where most people go. It was in the conservancy... More

I live and work in Kenya and have seen plenty of lodges and camps over the years. Elephant Pepper stands out by a wildlife-studded mile. Not only is it based in the beautiful Mara North conservancy, supporting community-based conservation. The camp itself is exquisite and the staff friendly and attentive without being intrusive. The food is wonderful, the guides knowledgeable... More

Had a fantastic experience here and we're lucky enough to witness the wilderbeast migration crossing the Mara river. Great and luxurious camping accommodation, friendly staff. Loved every minute of it here. Patrick and Sophia couldn't do enough for us and we loved the Masai guiding us to and from our camp.

Elephant Pepper Camp is situated within the Mara North Conservancy. Small and exclusive, the camp is located in the heart of the African Bush. Our spacious canvas tents are comfortably furnished, featuring en suite bathrooms with flush toilets and traditional safari showers.
