Elephant Pepper Camp wins Eco Warrior Award

Share this post

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

Elephant Pepper Camp is one of only eight camps in Kenya to have been awarded “Gold Level” Eco Rating by the internationally recognised 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.

Since 2011 Cheli & Peacock and it’s collection of properties have won 5 Eco Warrior Awards in various categories, including Eco Enterprise of the Year 2011 & 2012 and we are delighted to add yet another trophy to our ‘Hall of Fame’!

The Eco Warrior Awards are organized by Ecotourism Kenya, founded in 1996 as the first Ecotourism Society worldwide! The awards gala held on 24th September 2013 was also the ideal occasion to kick off The International Ecotourism and Sustainable Tourism Conference which was proudly hosted in Nairobi last week, bringing together over 500 professionals from around the world!

To further the celebrations, Cheli & Peacock’s Elsa’s Kopje won one of Andrew Harper’s coveted Reader’s Choice Awards, listing Elsa’s Kopje as one of the world’s 20 best safari lodges!

The latest in a string of award wins, readers once again found Elsa’s Kopje’s combination of character, elegance, blissful solitude, unique design and superb wildlife to be an award-winning mix.

We congratulate the entire staff of Elsa’s Kopje and Elephant Pepper Camp and of course the Cheli & Peacock Community Trust Team!
