I travelled from Joy's Camp to Elephant Pepper on a Safarilink flight with amazing views of the African landscape. I was met at the air strip by my driver and driven to the camp en route viewing zebras and giraffes. The interior of my tent was decorated in the style of a bygone era with brass accessories in the bathroom....

We stayed at two camps while in Kenya. This one was the better of the two. The staff was fantastic, the food was excellent, our guide (James) was great, and the management team (Patrick and Sophia) were outstanding! Highly recommend this camp! It's small and very much what you want in Africa! Stay here and not at the camps that...

Elephant Pepper Camp was the second stop on our honeymoon and such an amazing experience. Masai Mara had so many animals on our tours that make the trip all the way to Africa so unbelievably worth it! Not only were there animals on our game drives but staying at elephant pepper, we had them right outside our tent windows! There's...

Rose at The Luxury Safari Company set up our trip over Christmas - myself, parents and brother stayed at two camps (Elsa's, review already written) before going to the beach. They went together perfectly, Elephant Pepper looks out over the plains which was fantastic - it is set in its own private area so you don't see lots of other...

This was to my romantic mind an experience that harkens back to another era. As part of our stay we had a full day game drive/safari - getting up early to have both breakfast and lunch out of camp. We travelled to see the hippos and crocodiles in the Mara River, an abandoned Maasi village and the natural beauty of...

This is hands down the best safari camp i have had the pleasure of staying in. In fact, i would go so far as to say this is the best establishment i have ever stayed in.

Seems an unbelievable amount of money to stay in a tent-until you get there! From the moment you arrive you quickly realise why it so expensive.

The Elephant Pepper Camp far exceeded our expectations from the moment we landed in the little airstrip (we had to circle a couple of times because some animals were in the way) to the time we left (wife in tears).
