Elephant Pepper Camp
Mara North Conservancy
Elephant Pepper Camp is a small tented camp that was originally built in the 80’s and is named after the grove of Elephant Pepper trees’ in which it’s nestled. The camp is ideally located from which to explore the conservancy or to venture into the Masai Mara National Reserve itself during the Great Migration – roughly July to October.
While this is a permanent tented camp it has a really great bush feel to it and while the tents are not that far apart all have stunning views out over the plains. The main guest area of the camp consists of two large tents in which there is a comfortable lounge area, a small shop and the communal dinner table. A smaller tent to one side serves as a relaxation area and is where guests can find WiFi signal. While relaxing here guests are welcome to help themselves from the small bar.
This is one of the few camps that is very remote, un-fenced and ideal for families with small children.
There are 8 suite tents and 2 honeymoon tents. All the tents can be made up as doubles or twins and can fit extra beds for those with small children. King size beds, mosquito nets and bedside tables made the tents very comfortable during our stay there.
All the tents have been decorated in simple styles making them both spacious and very comfortable. The en-suite bathroom is behind a tent flap complete with vanity basins, toilet and shower.
On the deck at the front of the tent is a hammock for lazing away during the afternoons.
