For a first trip to Africa, the camp exceeded my expectations. The game-viewing is fantastic...food delicious and abundant...tents the perfect balance of rustic and luxury. The staff was attentive and helpful and the guide (Boni) extremely skilled at finding wildlife we otherwise would have missed. I was a bit anxious about traveling alone, but quickly met lovely people at the...

This was our final stop on our recent trip to Kenya (1 night Nairobi, 3 nights Fairmont Mt. Kenya, 2 nights Giraffe Manor, 2 nights Tortilis Camp in Amboseli, and 2 nights Elephant Pepper Camp), and it was fantastic! This was a bit more "rugged" than Tortilis Camp, but still very luxurious. Patrick and Sophie lead an excellent team! It...

This camp is in the heart of the action in the Mara North Conservancy. We had wildlife frequently going by the area visible from our veranda. The camp is very comfortable inside with well appointed rooms, showers, storage space, etc. Food was very good. Patrick and Sophie, our hosts, could not have been more accommodating. Francis was our guide and...

Just spent two nights at EPC and absolutely fell in love! Tents were clean and cozy. Food and people were amazing. My daughter is gluten/dairy free due to illness and they made wonderful food for her. Patrick is an amazing host and James is a great guide. Can't say enough about EPC! Truly one of Kenya's best camps!

Have visited both Mara and Serengeti many time over past 6 years. This is the best camp experience to date. Patrick leads and exceptional team. Highly recommended. A suggestion to the team. Add an overnight tent option to your already excellent offering.
