Kenya

Elephant Pepper Camp

PLAN MY TRIP

A strong leader in responsible tourism, Elephant Pepper Camp in Kenya’s Mara North Conservancy combines an old-fashioned safari camp feel with the latest technology.

Elephant Pepper Camp is a comfortable, unpretentious bush camp that still maintains a luxurious atmosphere. Eight green canvas tents offer en-suite bathrooms including traditional safari shower and eco-flush toilet. A private veranda with a relaxing hammock overlook the savanna plains. The Honeymoon Tent features a large main bedroom, en-suite bathroom, large veranda with seating and dining area, and private campfire area. It can comfortably accommodate two more beds to become a family tent.

Elephant Pepper Camp gets its name from the grove of elephant pepper trees that surround it. This magical setting overlooks a waterhole that provides superb year-round game viewing in the game-rich Mara North Conservancy. Of course, most people come to watch the annual great migration, an impressive parade of over one million wildebeest as well as other plains game such as zebra and gazelle, including Thompson’s gazelle, eland, and impala. Of course, predators accompany the migrating wildlife, so guests can expect to see black-maned lion and hyena as well. Other frequently sighted animals include leopard, endangered black rhino, hippo, crocodile, elephant, kongoni, topi, buffalo, giraffe, cheetah, and over 450 bird species.

Day and night game drives are conducted in custom vehicles and led by expert guides and trackers. Guided bush walks study the savannas at a slower pace giving ample time to take in the smaller details and flora and fauna missed from the vehicles. Bush breakfasts and sundowners are a feast for the eyes as well as the palate with meals enjoyed in the beauty of the landscape and wildlife. Cultural visits to local villages provide a detailed look at the rich traditions and daily life of the Maasai people.

Eating together and sharing daily adventures is part of the dining experience at the camp, although special romantic candlelit dinners can be arranged. Original Italian recipes and fresh, organic salads are often served, and chefs are happy to cater to special diets. Evenings around the campfire bring guests back to nature, and the camp’s location in the middle of the protected Mara North Conservancy provides a feeling of being in the wilderness. The camp’s environmental impact is radically minimal, beginning with being generator-free and relying entirely on solar power. Recycling is part of the day-to-day operations and includes an initiative for glass recycling called “Glass for Glasses,” which provides eyeglasses for impoverished citizens.
