Elephant Pepper Camp:
Situated right on the Northern Edge of the Maasai Mara reserve this 8-tented bush camp, is tucked away in a prime wildlife area. Surrounded by the Mara’s ubiquitous game, it's a seasonal camp, which is taken down for a month or so in the rainy seasons.

Elephant Pepper Camp (originally Mara Bush Camp) offers a unique, comfortable environment and is aptly named after the Warburgia Ugandensis tree, which is commonly known as the Elephant Pepper tree.

The true bush experience of walking and unwinding around the glowing embers of a campfire all add to the authenticity of a true bush experience. Creative comforts are not sacrificed either with ensuite bathrooms being part of each spacious tent.

Looking from the camp across the plains one can see the ‘greatest game show on earth’ when the annual wildebeest migration thunders past to seek new grazing in the lush savannahs of the Maasai Mara.

Elsa's Kopje:
Elsa's Kopje is set in the untamed wilderness of Meru National Park. Named after the Elsa the lioness of 'Born Free' fame, the lodge is invisible to the eye as you approach the kopje. Each of the 9 individually built cottages is luxuriously appointed, designed to incorporate the natural features of the rocky hillside. The cottages are spacious and have double or twin beds, with en-suite bathrooms. There is an open bar area, lounge and dining room where guests can relax. The infinity pool overlooks the Meru plains.

Activities available here include game drives in 4-wheel drive vehicles, night game drives and guided bush walks. Regular sightings include Beisa Oryx, Gerenuk, Elephant, Grevy’s Zebra, Reticulated Giraffe, Lesser Kudu, Grant’s Gazelle, Leopard, Lion, Cheetah, Rhino and the rare, elusive Greater Kudu. Meru is also famous for its bird life. Day excursions can be taken to the Tana River and visits to the local Theraka village can be arranged.

Soft drinks, beer, house wines and non-luxury spirits are included. There is a limited laundry service.

Samburu Intrepids Camp:
Samburu Intrepids Camp is a luxury-tented camp in the midst of the rugged and savagely beautiful semi arid desert of northern Kenya. Located in the Samburu National Reserve on the banks of the Uaaso Nyiro River, the camp offers unique game viewing in its immediate surroundings. Located 345 kilometers north of Nairobi, the journey to the camp involves a 50-minute flight to the Samburu airstrip followed by a 20-minute drive through the reserve.

The Camp:
-The luxurious tented camp offers 27 modern tents with a private view over the wildlife-rich riverbanks.

-The tented camp roofing is all palm-thatched, and is raised on stilts to catch the cooling breeze blowing off the river.
-The main dining room has a seating capacity of 60, and opens onto an outdoor dining terrace, where buffet breakfasts and lunches are served overlooking the river. (Meals can also be enjoyed on your private verandah or at one of a series of specially selected 'bush sites' close to the camp.)
