Elephant Pepper Camp

Masai Mara National Reserve, Kenya

Silver price level

Mango Opinion

Elephant Pepper is a consistent performer. It enjoys a winning combination of a very friendly staff, comfortable tented accommodations, and prime location. The spacious tents are traditional yet perfectly comfortable with large bucket showers and flushing toilets. We enjoy the safaris here on the Mara North Reserve, away from any crowds. 

Located in the Mara North Conservancy, the heart of the Masai Mara ecosystem, Elephant Pepper Camp is the perfect base from which to explore the wonders of the Mara.

The camp’s remote location allows the stars to shine bright at night, undimmed by harsh lighting; guests enjoy the unique experience of listening to the sounds of lion, leopard and hyena foraging and hunting, while being cosseted with traditional and modern comforts such as a campfire and cozy duvets. The 8 (4 doubles & 4 twins) spacious luxury safari tents are larger, brighter and offer more spacious bathroom areas. Combined with Indian Raj Campaign furniture, mixing dark wood with intricate brass fittings, the tents have a very classy & elegant feel.

The vast, fertile plains of the Maasai Mara boasts a plethora of wildlife; with over 450 bird species and both resident and transient populations of lion, leopard, buffalo, elephant, giraffe, to name a few, the plains are dense with game. Elephant Pepper Camp is perfect for those wanting to observe the spectacle of the migration, classified among the “Seven Wonders of the World”, when, from July to November, over 1.3 million wildebeest and zebra cross from the Serengeti in search of greener pastures. To witness this natural phenomenon is a dazzling experience that should be on everyone's bucketlist. It is well worth the trip to Kenya!
