Elephant Pepper Camp, host to BBC Cat presenters


BBC Big Cat presenters Jonathan and Angela Scott, following a recent visit to the Camp, both agree that Elephant Pepper is indeed the perfect location from which to enjoy the wonders of the Mara.

“We just had the most amazing 4 nights at Elephant Pepper Camp filming with National Geographic in one of our favourite parts of the Masai Mara – the Mara North Conservancy. Elephant Pepper Camp is the perfect retreat to escape the hustle and bustle of city life. Set among the soothing canopy of a patch of forest, the tents are bright and spacious, elegantly and tastefully appointed, with nice large shower heads to soak under after long days on safari. The food is a treat for all palates and the chef is only too happy to accommodate the most demanding dietary requirements. The vehicles are spacious and great for photography with guides who will ensure that you get the most from each game drive. A safari is always defined by your hosts back at camp, and Patrick and Sophie Dessy make each visitor feel special; nothing is too much trouble, and all delivered with an open friendly manner that inspires confidence and adds that extra element that defines a great camp. So be sure to take time to sit back and enjoy one of the most magical spots in Africa, whether from your vehicle or from a deck chair on the privacy of the veranda of your tent. Bliss!”

Elephant Pepper Camp has 8 (4 doubles & 4 twins) brand new luxury safari tents; large, brighte and with spacious bathroom areas. Combined with Indian Raj Campaign furniture, mixing dark wood with intricate brass fittings, the tents have a classy and elegant feel.

The tents are set underneath a grove of fig and Elephant Pepper Trees, and are spaced out to ensure privacy. Watch the wildlife roam on the savannah plains from your personal verandah or hammock.

All tents can fit one extra bed, to accommodate children under the age of 16 years. For families, check out the brand new Family Tents.
