Elephant Pepper Camp offers privacy and solitude within 3600 square kilometres of wilderness, in the protected Koiyaki wilderness area. Far away from other lodges and hidden in a grove of elephant pepper trees overlooking the Mara plains in the core of Mara North Conservancy, this traditional style tented camp is in a prime but secluded game viewing area.
There are eight en-suite tents and one en-suite honeymoon or family tent. These spacious canvas tents are comfortably furnished and have en suite bathrooms with eco-friendly flush toilets and traditional safari showers. In order to preserve this special area the camp is seasonal and closes for two months of the year. Maximum capacity in camp at any one time is 22.
There are several activities to keep you entertained - such as day and night game drives, guided bush walks, bush breakfasts, sundowners, cultural visits and more. Sit around the campfire and enjoy the sounds of the African night. Go back to nature, with no traffic, no permanent structures, just the sights and sounds of the African bush.
Nature combines with luxury as you will be spoilt with stellar cuisine. Expect many Italian recipes and fresh organic salads. Either eat together and share your daily adventures with other guests or revel in a more private romantic dinner. You can have a picnic breakfast while out on a morning game drive; picnic lunches on full day tripsduring the great migration; and candlelit dinners. They cater for every diet.
Elephant Pepper Camp is involved in several community development schemes and eco-preservation projects. For example, rubbish is responsibly disposed of or recycled; they employ many local Maasai people; they work very closely with a local school, and have currently raised enough funds to build a new classroom for them; plus much more.
The camp won a Gold Eco-rating Certification from Ecotourism Kenya for 2011/2012 (there are only three Gold rated camps in the whole of Kenya) and 5 of the Best: Best for an Authentic Camping Experience in Travel Weekly Magazine, October 2005. So you can trust that it'll be an experience worth having!
