overview

Elephant Pepper Camp is a traditional bush safari camp shaded by a natural forest of ebony and elephant pepper trees, overlooking the Mara plains. Set away from other lodges, the camp offers modern comforts, evenings by the campfire, and dinner under the stars.

The spectacular annual migration of wildebeest and zebra is by no means the only feature of this World Heritage Site. The Masai Mara is home to enormous herds of plains game, big cats, and elephant as well as colourful birds, small game, riverine wildlife and beautiful scenery. Daily extended game drives in open-sided vehicles, some night drives, and guided bush walks make up your game viewing experience.

Traveller Reviews

  • WOW! When we landed on the airstrip, we were greeted on the runway by a Maasai Giraffe! James our driver (AMAZING...fluent in over 7 languages, knowledgeable about all animals and people in the area, the best tracker and spotter in the Mara, kind and accommodating) met us at the plane and before we even got to camp we were surrounded by elephants, common zebras, giraffes, and we were lucky enough to see a leopard! Later on that evening, on our evening Game Drive, we saw lions with cubs AND a giraffe that had been born only minutes before we encountered it. And too many other animals to mention! All of our Game Drives in the Mara North were very thrilling, as there were animals galore! We enjoyed everything about Elephant Pepper Camp: Hosts: Patrick and Sophie, the morning and evening fires, game drives, food, tent, the Maasai people, and of course, the incredible animals EVERYWHERE. Even though we were a bit off season, it worked out great for us because the camps were not crowded, and we did not run into as many game vehicles as during the high season. The Sundowners and breakfasts and lunches in the Bush were a highlight of our game drives at both Joy's Camp and Elephant Pepper Camp!
