Elephant Pepper Camp

Elephant Pepper Camp

The Honeymoon Tent of Elephant Pepper CampSituated right on the Northern Edge of the Maasai Mara reserve this 8-tented bush camp, is tucked away in a prime wildlife area. Surrounded by the Mara's ubiquitous game, it's a seasonal camp, which is taken down for a month or so in the rainy seasons. Elephant Pepper Camp has been recently refurbished and designed to attract and introduce people to an authentic Masai Mara wildlife Safari Experience. Elephant Pepper Camp (originally Mara Bush Camp) offers a unique, comfortable environment and is aptly named after the Warburgia Ugandense tree, which is commonly known as the Elephant Pepper tree. The true bush experience of walking and unwinding around the glowing embers of a campfire all add to the authenticity of a true bush experience. Creative comforts are not sacrificed either with ensuite bathrooms being part of each spacious tent. Looking from the camp across the plains one can see the "greatest game show on earth" when the annual wildebeest migration thunders past to seek new grazing in the lush savannahs of the Maasai Mara.  

Your bedroom at the Elephant Pepper CampThe camp nestles in the shade of a natural forest overlooking the Mara plains. It has 8 large light canvas tents with en-suite dressing rooms, safari showers filled with hot water on request and flush toilets. The main dining/bar mess tent offers family style dining with a help-yourself bar. To compliment our new name, we have also upgraded 4 of our tents, one of which is a family/honeymoon tent. 3 of the tents will be 1 bay larger and the honeymoon/family separate dressing and living room, 80 sq metres of living space. All our guests will enjoy a panoramic view of the Masai Mara plains; ideal for capturing the breathtaking sights the Mara has to offer. The game is literally on your doorstep.

 

Dine in a beautiful atmosphere at the Elephant Pepper CampThe staff are friendly and welcoming: arriving in camp is like coming home. The appetising food is prepared by chefs trained by the owners' family using traditional North Italian recipes mixed with international and local favourites. A barbecue by the campfire, dinner in the mess tent, or a bush breakfast on the open plains are some of the lasting memories to take home. The Maasai Mara defies description: undoubtedly the spectacular migration of Wildebeest and Zebra searching for lush grazing following the rains, stalked by the omnipresent predators, is one of the world's greatest wildlife marvels. But the migration is by no means the only feature this fascinating eco-system is home to enormous herds of plains game, the Big Cats and Elephant as well as colourful birds, small game, riverine wildlife and stunning scenery.

Camp Description:
Your bathroom at the Elephant Pepper CampElephant Pepper Camp is located in the middle of this 3600 sq km wilderness.

In order to preserve this special area our camp is seasonal and is completely dismantled for three months of the year. Our spacious canvas tents, with an en suite dressing room, flush loos and safari showers are comfortably furnished. Nothing rivals sitting around the campfire enjoying the sounds of the African night. Extended game drives each day and some night game drives make game viewing a complete experience.
