Elephant Pepper Bush Camp, situated right on the Northern Edge of the Masai 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.
This Masai Mara Bush Camp has been recently refurbished and designed to attract and introduce people to an authentic Masai Mara wildlife Safari Experience.
Elephant Pepper 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. 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 Masai Mara.
The 8 (4 doubles & 4 twins) spacious luxury safari tents are larger, brighter and offer more spacious bathroom areas. Combined with Indian Raj Campaign furniture, mixing dark wood with intricate brass fittings, the tents have a very classy and elegant feel. The tents are set underneath a grove of fig and Elephant Pepper Trees and are spaced out to ensure privacy. From your personal verandah or hammock you can watch wildlife roam on the savannah plains.
Elephant Pepper Camp’s two Honeymoon / Family Tents are the ideal accommodation for couples that want extra space and privacy and for families. The spacious suites each comprise of an ensuite master bedroom and a sitting room, which can be converted into a second bedroom for children under the age of 16 years. The lush bathrooms have double wash basins, flush toilets and hot water showers.
Elephant Pepper Camp’s cuisine includes a mouth-watering combination of homemade pastas, traditional Italian recipes such as Melanzane Parmigiana and Osso Bucco, and fresh organic salads.
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.
