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.

We were so lucky to see from the first moments we arrived some white and grey rhinos, cheeta's, lions, elephants, girafs, lovely waterboks, and thousands of zebra's, buffalo's and funny warthooks. And of course the 3 last Nothern white rhino's in the hole world.

A fairly small conservancy as parks in Africa go, but plenty to see for two days. Plenty of Rhino, both black and white with the 3 remaining whites from the Czech Republic (returned from there and the last of the species). Had a leopard cross 25 yards in front of us during the day-a rare treat.We did both self drive... More

Ol Pejeta Conservancy has absolutely everything. Doing a self game drive meant we had to look for animals, there was no shortage. Our two main stars of the safari was seeing rhinos with their babies in a natural habitat and lions playing on the plain. It's a must do for any safari enthusiast.

Basically a private enclosed game park. Don't trust Google directions. The entrance to the park is at least a 30m drive on a dirt road, off the main road. Although it sounds large, a majority of the drivable areas are doable in a day. There are a good number of areas around the park which each offer different animal opportunities.... More

Dear David, Many thanks for your valuable feedback above. Ol Pejeta Conservancy is a private wildlife conservancy of 90.000 acres. Three of our boundaries are heavily populated. The fence is essential in helping to reduce potential human wildlife conflicts that would undoubtedly occur if it was not there. On our northern boundary, we do have 3 wildlife corridors, which are... More

Although we only spent a short time at the Ol Pejeta Conservancy (bad planning on our part!), we were very impressed with everything we saw. We are certain that in the Nanyuki area, this is a must-visit place, and we will dedicate at least a day or two to see it properly on our next trip.

We decided to do a self drive safari over Christmas weekend and we chose Ol Pejeta Conservancy as the park to go to. There are other options but this was close to where we were staying (Fairmont Mount Kenya Safari Club). Sweetwaters also has a game park in the same area, but Ol Pejeta is bigger. We took a box...

The conservancy offers visitors an very exciting menu of entertainment and experience about nature and animals and conservancy. There is no other place left in the world to to see and view at close quarters the ONLY surviving Northern White Rhino (called Sudan) than at Ol Pejeta Conservancy in Nanyuki - Kenya.

Hello Jenny, We are happy that you chose to visit Ol Pejeta and that your experience was memorable. It is indeed sad that only 3 northern white rhinos remain but we hope that IVF may provide a way to save this species. It is the support from people like you that keep us going.

This is located in Laikipia County, near Nanyuki town in Kenya. It is the home of the Big Five and other games. Famous for Rhinos and the Chimps Sanctuary that is a great place to go. Has some very nice and high end Tented Camps / Lodges. Highly recommended.

I visited the Ol Pejeta Conservancy when I stayed at the Mount Kenya Safari Club. We took a half-day game drive and were not disappointed. It was a drizzling day, but it did nothing to make the wildlife less fascinating. We saw lions, rhino, zebra and all sorts of antelope and birds. We also visited the Sweetwaters Chimpanzee Sanctuary, which... More
