The Ol Pejeta Conservancy is a mosaic of grass plains, wooded grassland, Acacia woodland and evergreen thicket extending for over 350 square kilometres. The Ol Pejeta Conservancy, East Africa’s Largest Black Rhino Sanctuary, is situated at the foot hills of the Aberdares and the magnificent snow-capped Mount Kenya. Ol Pejeta boasts an astounding variety of animals including non-indigenous chimpanzees and the Big Five (the endangered black and white rhino, leopard, elephant, buffalo & lion). The combination of amazing wildlife and stunning views across the open plains guarantees an unforgettable safari experience.

Ol Pejeta is great to see lots of animals in a small place in a short time. At one point I counted 11 different species from a single spot where I stopped my car and took pictures galore. Rhinos are star attractions but somewhat sadly their rarest specimens are fenced in a sort of high security prison to protect them... More

It was great to see all big five for sure. We even got to see a rhino family (mom, dad and baby). It was very sad to see the rhino cemetery.

I stayed in Ol Pejeta for 24 hours over night. Apart from seeing 14 lions in two prides - which the guides admitted was a bit lucky though - we saw eland, thompson, grant, steenbuck, buffalo, black and white rhino, giraffe, wharthog, austrich, zebra and elephants of course. Not to speak of the many different birds. The team - Lenny... More

Ol Pajeta was an eye opener for me. Not only because it was a very pretty 'park' but also because people have gone to painful lengths to keep animals like the Rhino safe here. Miles and miles and miles of fencing which is prohibitively expensive is not an option here. An absolute mind blowing experience. If you want to see... More

In the global scale of things Ol Pegeta is small. Plenty to see though. This was the place that we observed a kill with lions, hyenas, vultures and a jackal all sharing a meal of buffalo. The chimpanzee enclosure should not be missed. The entrance fee was higher than we expected but when you read about the cost of maintaining... More

Ol Pejeta located just 10 km off the equator is a brilliant little conservancy which should be visited by one and all. It is exactly 200 km away from Nairobi which is where the main gate Rongai is located. They charge a premium of 2,400 KES for residents (you can get 10% discount if you book online) and 90 USD...
