The Elephant Pepper Camp in the Mara North Conservancy, a protected area with no other lodges nearby.
This small camp consists only of tents, set up in a grove of the elephant pepper trees that give the camp its name, and can accommodate a maximum of 22 guests. The camp is closed for two months of the year. The camp does not have a generator, and seeks to minimize its environmental impact. The camp is part of the Cheli & Peacock Portfolio of properties.
Guests stay in large canvas tents, with en-suite bathrooms. The bathrooms have environmentally friendly toilets and traditional safari-style showers. There are seven tents that are furnished as double or twin units, and one honeymoon/family tent. The standard tents have a main bedroom, and a private verandah with lounge furniture and a hammock. The beds and chairs are decorated with colorful fabrics, and the décor is rustic in style. The tents have room for one extra bed, which can be used for a child of less than 16 years of age. The honeymoon tent has a larger verandah with a dining area, and has room for two extra children’s beds if required. Its bathroom has double sinks.
