Have visited both Mara and Serengeti many time over past 6 years. This is the best camp experience to date. Patrick leads and exceptional team. Highly recommended. A suggestion to the team. Add an overnight tent option to your already excellent offering.

We were two families of 5 staying at Elephant Pepper Camp for two nights. What a gem of a Safari camp: attentive, friendly and welcoming camp staff and knowledgeable guides. The camp is well appointed with a vast amount of wildlife around or nearby. The tents are well positioned and the decor lovely. Great hot showers, comfortable beds and all...

Had a fantastic experience at the Elephant Pepper Camp - the location was perfect - no fences so animals are RIGHT THERE - one night there were literally lions in camp (do not leave one's tent at night without a Masai guide). The service was wonderful with great attention to detail in all respects including the preparation of the meals...

This was the final camp of our holiday and was undoubtedly the best. It was extremely traditional in its furnishings, and made you feel really part of the Mara - especially listening to animal noises at night and finding a lion's paw print outside our tent! The food was excellent and dietary requirements were no problem. Our guide, Samuel, was...

From a guide with the most amazing eyesight to a luxury (but not OTT) camp providing excellent service, Elephant Pepper delivered what I'd always imagined a safari holiday to be. 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...

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.
