Wonderful wildlife. Marred only slightly by the visitors from Sweetwaters from which there are quite a few in vehicles. However, it got considerably quieter by the Tuesday and we hardly saw another vehicle

I have been to Ol Pajeta a couple of times and I must say that this is one of the best conservancies I have been to. Very well managed. Kudos to the management team, keep up the lovely work you are doing there!!

I found Ol Pejeta to be a very informative Game drive. Rhino and Chimpanzee conservancies are great and very interesting for our children. The conservancy also has one northern white rhino out of the 4 alive in the world. But theres a separate fee of ksh 1000 apart from the entrance fee. Game drive is beautiful and long. I would...

We met many committed wildlife rangers who are passionate about protection of the highly endangered rhinos - they are an inspiration in an uncertain world.

We were informed if we wished to see the Very rare and endangered Northern white Rhino, they have now introduced a fee of USD40.00 and we had to phone a number to arrange this. Our phone calls went unanswered and the lack of communication meant we have missed our opportunity to see and support this animal! Also where are the... More

Many thanks for your review and for bringing to my attention the extremely serious issue of our phone not being answered.

The landline phone is managed from our office on the conservancy from 0800 to 1700. We also... More

We stayed in Pelican house for one night. I traveled with my family and some friends. The house is beautiful and clean, large living-dining room with big fireplace, nice veranda on the watering hole where you can have your sundowner. Really confortable. The only problem was with the insects coming inside the house attracted by the lights at night.

We spent a couple of hours visiting the Conservatory and were spoiled by other game reserves before visiting this location. Lots of elephants, monkeys, and zebras which were more numerous at other locations. white rhinos were visible and the Conservatory has taken off the horns of some to protect the animals from poachers. It is sad to learn that illegal... More

This was the fourth safari area we visited. The roads were much smoother than previous areas and there were lots of clear signposts. It felt a bit more sanitised for that reason, however we still saw lots of excellent wildlife.

Great for a safari with a view! But not as many animals as I expected. Rangers and guides are very friendly entrance fee to the park is quite steep!
