Elephant Pepper Camp

The Masai Mara at it best - Elephant Pepper Camp

The camp with the name you will never forget, Elephant Pepper Camp, is named after the grove of trees whereunder it hides in a gorgeous shady position all visitors love in the divine Masai Mara Game Reserve region of Kenya. Plan your luxury safari to Elephant Pepper Camp for exceptional game viewing and hospitality pare excellence. 

Find this popular tourism destination in the Mara North Conservancy bordering the Masai Mara and part of that extensive ecosystem, a wonderful base from which to explore this magical wilderness with its teeming wildlife herds, mind boggling bird diversity and intense predator populations everywhere. 

Plan your safari tour for the time when the worldly and world famous Great Migration occurs, July to November, just before the African rains, and be witness to one of the Seven Wonders of the World as nearly 2 million wildebeest and zebra stampede across plains and rivers to greener pastures.  

This camp is pure magic, truly authentic, with the most spectacular of game drives, a must-do camp. Absorb simply stunning views as you literally lunch with elephants and giraffes, taking special time to just sit and absorb the animals surviving as they do. Elephant Pepper Camp hospitality is genuinely warm and all visitors feel as if they are being welcomed into the owners’ own home. Traditional and healthy foods make all the difference to a day packed with safaris and real Masai Mara guides add enormous value to game drives and bush walks as the people are from here and teach guests so much about their home and culture. 

Feel as if superb game drives are crafted just for you, not a “one size fits all” experience. Enjoy one of the smallest and most genuine tented camps in the Mara which maximizes the “safari feel”. Only 8 tented suites and 2 honeymoon suites fan out around the main tented areas in a huge zone of beautiful trees and outlooks. 

There is everything you need and more – ensuite bathrooms with showers, typical safari style décor with wooden furnishings, canvas walls and some special extras such as hot water bottles snuck into your bed at night, beautiful Kenya kikois to wear on the deck and delightful hammocks swinging in the breezes for pure relaxation. 

You will love your time at Elephant Pepper and customer service is first class so book your seats with Voyage2Africa to the show of the year and the most intimate camp of the Masai Mara and we will organise the full package deal for you.

Overview

Find the delightful Elephant Pepper Camp peeping out from a grove of fig and elephant pepper trees, wonderful shade in a region known for its open grassy plains and a place where you can feel like family and be treated like royalty – on the edges of Kenya’s great Masai Mara Game Reserve.

Find yourself in a wildlife and biodiversity hotspot in the private Mara North Conservancy that merges with the vast Masai Mara to provide even more habitat for lions, leopards, cheetah, wild dogs, massive herds of elephants, buffalo and antelope, not forgetting the hundreds of gorgeous bird species endemic here. 

The camp is open all year although it is not permanent because the environmental ethic means no permanent structures to mar the landscape – simple canvas tents, wooden accessories and superb facilities make Elephant Pepper the place to be when the Great Annual Migration runs past.

We love Elephant Pepper because of this and because it is so spread out on a four km stretch of treed habitat where animals come and go and where guests can chill out on the decks and wine and dine to their hearts’ content between game viewing activities. The canvas tents are true traditional safari style with khaki and beige, cream and brown colourings, wooden accessories and lovely showers and beds, all made for that blending into the African environment safari holiday that you dream about. 

Wake up at dawn for thrilling game drives then arrive back at camp for a large breakfast and time to read a book or play croquet on the lawns. The main reasons you are here are for the iwlldife and the birds, the landscape, sunsets, sunrises and to learn more about the Masai culture from your local guides who grew up here, their land, their home.

Voyage2Africa is waiting for your call to organise your safari tour to Kenya, starting here in the Masai Mara and then branching out to see the Amboseli wonderland, the Mount Kenya National Park and all the delights of the Central Laikipia Highlands.
