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.

My Husband and our group of Friends really enjoyed Ol Pejeta! We got up close and personal with Baraka The Rhino, feeding and petting him from a viewing platform. The Ranger was very nice and informative. The entire Staff of Ol Pejeta and Sweetwaters Camp were fantastic!

Well maintained conservancy. A lot of effort has been put in to protect rhinos and chimps. Ol Pejeta is a nice weekend getaway but if you're looking for lots of game, I reckon there's better places in Kenya...

Expensive to enter the conservancy, even for residents (double KW SOUTH park fees) Saw lots of rhino'so, black and white. Good job my family good animal spotters, as my daughter spotted Impala'so acting suspiciouslying and on investigation spotted a lioness and lion on a possible hunt. We stayed for 3 days, and agreed, that a day was sufficient.The Chimp Sanctuary... More

Staying at the outstanding Kicheche Laikipia, luxurious camp in a relaxed atmosphere, in serene settings with first class staff and divine food. Ol Pejeta conservancy is so vast, it doesn’t feel crowded and the wildlife is abundant. Some species are hardly seen in the Masai Mara, especially white and black rhinos, but they are a frequent sighting here, as well... More

Lots of animals ... My favourite being the lions and Rhinos. Went to the Chimp sanctuary - takes about 15 minutes. Is appropriate to tip the guide. I skipped the rhino sanctuary since we got to see 3 rhinos in the wild. Allows night safaris.

If you want to see rhinos in the wild - this is the place. Both black and white were easily seen and with youngsters. So nice to see them doing so well here. We visited Baraka, the rhino that the rangers are looking after. We even fed and patted him from a platform. The guides at the Chimpanzee Sanctuary are... More

Conservation...but without losing focus on the economic and social realities of the landscape and the importance of integrating all these objectives.

We self drove thru the area, roads are clearly marked. You need 4 x 4 as if the soil is wet you will get stuck. The soil is black cotton which is like driving on ice.... The Plains game is very is to see. Depending on time of day the Lions may be laying in the sun.

The Conservancy is a very special place located about 4 hours north of Nairobi. I was in Nairobi on business and wanted to go on safari without traveling too far from there and this was just the ticket. It's an outstanding place -located in the shadow of Mt. Kenya the land and setting are outstanding but the lions, elephants, rhinos,... More

We only spent one night and day on the conservancy and I wish I had a week longer. We saw so many animals!! We took two safaris with guides from our hotel and then one on our own in our bus. Each time we found interesting sites. We saw a lion eating a warthog and got close enough we could... More
