SkySafari - Kenya Classic
The allure of Kenya is legendary, and this 8-day safari captures its true essence. Marvel at Amboseli’s famed elephants; lose yourself in the romance of Meru, and be awed by the finest wildlife viewing in the world in the Masai Mara.
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.
Of this vast wilderness, 70,000 acres, is the private conservancy of Mara North Conservancy. 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 game viewing within the conservancy.

Mara North Conservancy, is a privately managed conservancy in the core of the Masai Mara, game driving in Mara North 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. Game driving is outstanding, with a resident pride of lions, cheetahs and leopard; and of course the famous zebra and wildebeest migration surrounding camp in months of July – October.
Elephant Pepper Camp, offers pre-dinner game drives with red-light spotlights. Game driving at dusk and early evening opens up a whole new world – hunting predators, aardvark.
