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 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

My family and I organized a day trip with Sojourn Safaris and We all had a great time with our driver Peter. We were even allowed to pet the blind rhino Baraka which was such a thrill! A day is definately not enough to see all this huge park has to offer. The very entrance of the park already offers... More

I have lived in Kenya for just over two years now and on arriving in the conversancy we was surprised to hear about the Chimpanzee rescue place, we had not heard anything about it before,it costs 2400 shillings per person per day to enter into Ol Pajeta conservancy. On arriving at the Chimpanzee sanctuary we were met by Julius who... More

We arrived at the sweetwaters camp on our way from Samburu, to our surprise, before we were even at the camp, we had spotted a good number of wildlife including cats, antelopes , buffalo and giraffes. To us it was like being in one big wildlife mall.

This is one of the coolest places I have ever been. If you find yourself in this area of the World it is a must do. They have the Only White Rhino left in the World. The animals are amazing. Plan on spending the entire day here.

Although it can make for a long day, you can visit Ol Pejeta from Nairobi in one day. We left at 6am, stopped to take pictures at the equator, did a mid-morning game drive, ate lunch at Morani's (delicious!), fed Baraka, then drove around for another hour before heading back to Nairobi before sunset. In that time we saw four... More

I totally loved the place, and I guess we were lucky to see Lions!!! just as we got into the conservancy!!! Majestic creatures those. I was also so impressed by the Chimps they had,, you should see Olutara( or something close to that name) the chimp, asking for sugarcane!! The guides were also very helpful and the Morani picnic site... More

We didn't plan to visit here because we couldn't find much information, but only about 4 hours from Nairobi (that's how long our drive was), we were pleasantly surprised. A chimp sanctuary, rhino sanctuary and animals galore! Many rhino, giraffe, elephants, impala.....there are bathrooms at the rhino and chimp sanctuaries, but no where else. A view of Mount Kenya and... More
