Cheli & Peacock now hold 2 Gold Rating awards from EcoTourism Kenya

CHELI & PEACOCK GET DOUBLE GOLD FROM ECOTOURISM KENYA

(Posted 29th July 2013)

One of Kenya’s foremost safari and camp operations, Cheli & Peacock, have just received a second Gold Rating Award from EcoTourism Kenya, when their Elephant Pepper Camp in the Masai Mara retained this highest possible rating and their Joy’s Camp too rose from Silver to Gold Rating in the latest edition of EcoTourism’s annual rankings. Joy’s Camp in fact also received the ‘Best Sustainable Hotel in Africa’ trophy from International Hotel Awards. The renewed recognition for Elephant Pepper Camp comes as C&P celebrates their 28 years of camp operations in the Masai Mara. Back then, C&P joined hands with other likeminded individuals to create the Campfire Conservation initiative, under which Masai landowners were encouraged to dedicate their ranching land towards tourism and conservation, earning royalties, land rent and create employment opportunities, but it took until more recent times to see a string of conservancies now line the Masai Mara boundaries. C&P in fact were founder members of the Mara North Conservancy, one of the oldest such projects and today thriving and providing the Masai families of landowners with regular sustainable income. Congratulations to the C&P family for another ‘golden achievement’
