We stayed in Brackenhurst Conference Center and Hotel and hired a guide to drive is about 3 hours to here. Very few other people here and so we were able to drive around as if it were our private safari. Saw many animals except big cats.

We spent the day in Ol Pejeta Conservancy. We saw the wild dogs, which was absolutely unbelievable, we got to sit with them for quite a while. We had lunch at Morani's - the food was amazing, great attention to detail, well presented and very tasty. One criticism is that vehicles need to respect the speed limit.

We had a fantastic visit to the conservancy and, despite the rainy weather, really enjoyed camping. Seeing a lioness walk through our campsite one late afternoon was an exciting reminder that we actually were camping in the wild. Thanks to Samuel and the other guys for advice and assistance on fire starting! Lunch on Monday at Morani's restaurant was very... More

Some excellent options here in terms of what to see and how to see it. Fancy a bicycle safari? Go for it! They have some very rare animals (African wild dogs, endangered rhinos, hungry lions, just no big snakes or crocodiles) on the conservancy and some very accommodating, responsible drivers who will surely maximise your time here.

With Cattle Ranching and Tourism to provide funding Ol Pejeta is an interesting Conservation model. A number of comfortable accommodation options, a wide range of wildlife to find, some interesting conservation projects to visit. A good family safari destination.

The Conservancy provides the rhino with the most favourable breeding conditions in an attempt to pull the species back from the verge of extinction. The sanctuary has specially constructed 'game corridors' so that... More

I have visited Ol Pejeta conservancy many times. I am impressed by the was the care of their wildlife, with an endangered boma, host to the 4 remaining Northern White Rhino, and other endangered species. The size of the conservancy means that they often have the wild dogs on site and others that need lots of space. The friendly staff... More

The conservancy is split into two – east and west. Kicheche Laikipia Camp, where we stayed, is in the west where you can drive offroad for sightings. The eastern part of the conservancy has more public self-driving and no off-roading is allowed. The conservancy has lots of open grassland and there are large herds of zebra, gazelle and impala.

This national park is situated on the equator west of Nanyuki, between the foothills of the Aberdares and Mount Kenya. It is really a recommended place to go. If you are lucky, you will see all the big 5. Besides, don’t miss the Sweetwaters Chimpanzee Sanctuary because it is the only place in Kenya where this highly endangered and remarkably... More
