Elephant Pepper Camp’s accolades continue to grow! After receiving it’s GOLD Eco Rating for the 2nd time, Elephant Pepper Camp won the 2013 Eco Warrior Award as Best Tented Camp in Kenya, recognizing its exceptional achievements in sustainable tourism!

Eco-rating Certification – Ecotourism Kenya, 2013/14

gold-eco-ratingElephant Pepper Camp has been awarded the impressive GOLD-level Eco-rating Certificate by Ecotourism Kenya in recognition of its outstanding level of environmental responsibility and its dedication to the support and integration of local communities.

Mara North Conservancy won the Eco Warrior Award for Conservancy of the Year – Ecotourism Kenya, 2011

eco-warrior-award-2011EPC was a founding member of the Mara North Conservancy, which won the Eco Warrior Award as Conservancy of the Year 2011. Eco-Tourism Kenya recognizes innovation and exceptional achievements in responsible tourism which directly conserve the natural environment and support local communities within those ecosystems.


Community & Conservation


Elephant Pepper Camp has been the driving force in creating the Mara North Conservancy (MNC) which covers a core parcel of over 70,000 acres bordering the Maasai Mara National Reserve to the north and effectively increasing its size by 20%. The conservancy, established in 2009, provides some of the Masai Mara ecosystem’s prime game viewing, whilst guaranteeing over 800 Masai landowners stable revenue, transparent financial management and the preservation of the ancient balance between wildlife and traditional pastoralism.

Elephant Pepper Camp has worked with the local Masai community for nearly 20 years, with the creation of MNC only the latest development in preserving this vital wilderness.

Sustainable Tourism

Elephant Pepper Camp is one of only six camps in Kenya to have been awarded “Gold Level” Eco Rating by the internationally recognised civil society organisation Eco Tourism Kenya. The camp achieves environmental best practice by combining old fashioned safari camp know-how with the latest technology, leaving a minimal footprint. Almost invisible under the Elephant Pepper trees with completely removable tent structures, the camp relies entirely on solar power and uses only LED lighting.

Rubbish is responsibly disposed of or recycled and separated glass is sold to the recycling plant ‘Central Glass’ in Nairobi.


Elephant Pepper Camp has always worked directly with the community in this area since the late 1980s. Ensuring that the landowners benefit with a fair income from tourism. Since 2009, Elephant Pepper Camp has contributed over US$ 415,000 in lease payments and bednight fees directly to the Maasai landowners.

With the fixed payments coming in, these landowners have opened bank accounts, are able to plan their expenditure and even start accumulating savings. This helps them to set up local businesses and invest in the education of the future generation. Elephant Pepper Camp also employs over 80% of its staff from the surrounding communities.

Get Involved

On your safari, through the Cheli & Peacock Community Trust, you can really make a difference to the communities you are travelling near, by donating stationary, text books, uniforms, food and sports equipment in person, directly to the staff and pupils of a school. We work closely with the Committees of each school to make sure that each donation addresses a genuine need highlighted specifically by the school staff and parents.

At Elephant Pepper Camp, we support the local Ololomei Primary School which caters for 240 students from Pre School (age 6-7) to Standard 4 (age 10-12). In 2007 the camp had raised enough funds to build a new classroom, in 2009 we added a kitchen and in 2010 we provided the school with desks and chairs.

Contact Chania Frost our dedicated Project Manager, to find out exactly what Ololomei Primary School currently requires and ensure that you provide a genuinely needed contribution and have a meaningful interaction with Kenyan communities during your safari.

If you are considering bringing donations from abroad, visit the Pack for a Purpose website for very specific advice on what is needed. Please do note that when flying within Kenya, the internal flight weight restriction is 15kg and may therefore limit what you can carry with you to the camps and donate to the rural communities in person. We can always, however, donate anything over and above your weight limit on your behalf at a later date.



The Masai Mara

The Masai Mara & The Mara North Conservancy

This is the greatest wildlife spectacle in the world!

Greater Mara covers an area of 8000 km sq, a vast fertile wilderness. The Mara is the northern part of the great Serengeti / Masai Mara ecosystem. The Mara is higher in altitude, cooler, has more hills, is more fertile and receives more rainfall (approx. 760mm per year) and is therefore lusher and greener than the long plains of the Serengeti.

Because of this abundance of grazing and vegetation, the Mara has dense populations of wildlife, both the plains game, Thompson’s gazelle, zebra, giraffe, topi, wildebeest, impala …, and therefore plentiful predators.

During the months of June to November, the majority of the zebra and wildebeest in this vast eco-system congregate on the lush fertile plains of the Mara, gathering nutrient, before returning south to the plains of the Serengeti at the end of the year, although of course, very many are resident within the Mara.

Of this vast wilderness, 70,000 acres, is the private conservancy of Mara North Conservancy. Gamedriving in this area is limited to only the camps based here. Being private, yet central to the vast Masai Mara eco-system, the Elephant Pepper guides have easy access to the reserve, zebra and wildebeest crossings, and outstanding gameviewing within the conservancy.


At an altitude of 5500 – 6400 ft, the days are warm, rising to maximum of 30 deg C, but comfortable with minimum humidity, and the evenings and early mornings are cool. Rainfall is mostly in April and May with an average of 760mm per year.


Safari Dining

Using original Italian recipes passed down from the owner ‘Stefano Cheli’s mother, 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.

One of the joys of being on safari is to eat together and share your daily adventures with other guests. Communal dining is the normal practice at Elehant Pepper Camp, although private romantic dinners can also be arranged on request.

Meal times are as follows:

  • Breakfast 06.30-10.30 (although most guests enjoy a picnic breakfast while out on their morning game drive)
  • Lunch 13.00-14.30. Guests normally return from their morning game drive for lunch in camp, although we often provide picnic lunches for those doing a full day out.
  • Dinner 20.00 – 21.30. The evening time at camp begins with drinks and bitings around the camp fire, followed by a candlelit dinner in the dining tent.

Elephant Pepper Camp is happy to cater to special diets such as vegetarian, vegan, gluten-free, etc. Please make sure your agent informs us well in advance though, so that the camp managers can prepare for your arrival.
