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 and guided bush walks make up your thrilling game-viewing experiences. The camp lies within a private conservancy meaning you have access to the greater Mara but also to exclusive areas with limited access for other vehicles, meaning visitor density is low.
Elephant Pepper is unfenced (although there are 24-hour patrols by Maasai moran or 'warriors') and game is often spotted in camp. It is closed during the annual 'long rains' season from April to May. It is a delightful combination of a classic safari camp - think comfortable hammocks under the trees and polished brass lanterns - as well as mod cons like plumbed showers and Wi-Fi. Cuisine is inspired by Italy and lazy meals take place a long table in the mess tent.
