Masai Mara Game Reserve, Kenya
Elephant Pepper Camp offers a luxurious take on an African safari. Nestled in the private Mara North Conservancy within the Masai Mara, this charming camp is certainly high on our list when it comes to choosing a classic safari experience with an indulgent twist.
From the secluded private tents to the verdant African bush that surrounds them, this is certainly a nod to old-time safaris. Though running on solar power and built with canvas walls, the eight tented rooms still feel opulent thanks to the chic and comfortable furnishings, and the large veranda that looks out onto the plains.
There are also two honeymoon/family tented suites located on either side of the camp. These particular tents are very exclusive, with their own living room and enough space for another two beds.
We love how sociable this camp is. Whether you’re spotting elusive wildlife from the main lounge and decking area, tucking into gourmet cuisine with other travellers, or listening to the camp manager’s fascinating stories around the campfire, Elephant Pepper Camp is extremely friendly and welcoming.
Mara North Conservancy is also one of our favourites for spotting incredible wildlife. Home to Leopard Gorge – made famous by BBC’s Big Cat Diaries – as well as magnificent elephants, impalas, and a myriad of big cats, the game drives here are phenomenal, and there’ll be no other vehicles in sight.
