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.

Thanked my stars that this place was added in my itinerary. Having finished the Kenyan safari covering the likes of Masai Mara and Amboseli, I realised that spotting a Rhino (one of the Big5) is not only tough but next to impossible. This reserve takes care of that problem the best. We had numerous Rhino sightings very close to our... More

This was an extraordinary place. I spent two days here and learned so much about rhino poaching and chimpanzees. The caretakers here are full of information and are very patient and loving to the animals. I also had a special visit with the last remaining northern white rhino named Sudan. It was an unbelievable experience I'm very grateful to have... More

Ol Pejeta Conservancy as you may read on the internet is a private conservancy and had started many years back as a cattle farm. However over the years it has metamorphosed into a beautiful tourist destination in Kenya and a place which is very unique.

We visited Ol Pejeta Conservancy in September 2016 and stayed at the lovely Kicheche Laikipia Camp. We were surprised to find the conservancy so close to Nanyuki, a large town, but once you go into the conservancy you truly feel like you are in the wild. We paid three visits to the conservancy headquarters. First, we did a walk with... More
