Loisaba Tented Camp - Laikipia
The new Loisaba Tented Camp has been built on the site of the old Loisaba Lodge. The tented camp is luxurious, overlooking the dramatic Loisaba view of over 80 kms of wilderness to Mt. Kenya, and the new tents have a contemporary African style. The Tented Camp offers the many activities available on Loisaba; including camel & horse riding, fishing, day & night game drives as well as bush meals under the African skies.
Spacious and airy tents are custom-built with large top-to-bottom doors and windows, high ceilings and polished wood floors. The tent suites are adorned in chic Africana furniture with a modern European twist. The bathrooms are luxurious with flush toilets, double-basin vanity and solar-heated hot water cascading from a rainfall shower to deliver a revitalizing cleanse after an action-packed day.
Loisaba has eleven double ensuite tents that are 7m x 7m and one that is 9m x 9m. Each has a wide verandah and private grassed area in front.

Elephant Pepper Camp - Mara North Conservancy
Mara North Conservancy, within Masai Mara
8 En-suite Tents ~ 4 doubles and 4 twin tents (all tents can be made into doubles or twins & can each fit 1 extra bed) 2 Honeymoon / Family Suites ~ 100sq m spacious en-suite tents, which can comfortably fit two extra beds Extra beds are to accommodate children under the age of 16 years only Maximum 4 extra beds in camp at any one time
Elephant Pepper Camp is situated in the prime core of the protected and private Mara North Conservancy wilderness area. In the same location for 20 years, and one of the original, very small and exclusive tented camps, Elephant Pepper is located away from other lodges, in the heart of the African bush. Our newly refurbished spacious canvas tents are well-appointed, with en-suite bathrooms, including flush toilets and running water showers (a few tents still have traditional safari showers for the authentic safari aficionados).
The camp has a private viewing deck, which is very popular for sundowners or morning tea and coffee before a guided bush walk. Nothing rivals sitting around the campfire listening to the sounds of the African night. Enjoying extended game drives in the best equipped 4x4 game drive vehicles, clients participate in the most unique wildlife experience in the world. Elephant Pepper Camp brings people to the heart of the wilderness ~ no traffic, no permanent structures, just the sights and sounds of the African bush.
Taste of elegant safari from years gone by ~ Although extremely comfortable with spacious tents, en-suite bathrooms, gourmet food and elegant furnishings, the camp is very low key, with no noise to interfere with the sounds of the bush and resident lion pride!
Children get back to nature ~ From fiercely contested croquet matches in the lazy afternoons, to walks identifying tracks, learning to use a handmade bow and arrow, making a caste of Lion tracks and all those things that childhood used to be about.
Private Masai Mara ~ Mara North Conservancy is a privately managed conservancy in the core of the Masai Mara. Game driving is restricted to those vehicles belonging to lodges within the conservancy, so Elephant Pepper guests have this outstanding part of the Masai Mara, almost to themselves.
Highly qualified guides ~ 2 guides have the impressive Silver Level KPSGA qualification, while all remaining Elephant Pepper guides have a Bronze Level KPSGA qualification. Some of our guides have guided in this area for over 12 years.
Unrivalled game drive vehicles ~ EPC has a fleet of new, spacious, open-sided Land Cruisers. All vehicles feature enhancements specifically designed for comfort and photography, such as charging sockets and camera stands.
