Elephant Pepper Camp

Elephant Pepper Camp

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. For the traveler wanting to leave the smallest possible footprint, Elephant Pepper Camp is the ideal choice.

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. Elephant Pepper Camp is also active in its community, attending to the delicate balance between wildlife and traditional pastoralism.

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. 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. In the heart of Kenya’s African bush, guests take part in the very best of the safari experience.

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), private veranda, and 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.

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.

Popular activities include game drives, guided bush walks, bush breakfasts, sundowners, and cultural visits. Guests rave about the highly qualified guides who lead the twice-daily game drives. The Maasai Mara area is famous for its incredible wildlife, which includes lion, leopard, cheetah, hyena, giraffe, elephant, buffalo, wildebeest, and more.
