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).

This place is a nice private ranch, main attractions are Chimpanzees that have been rescued from captivity and rhinos. On a game drive you would easily spot elephants and giraffes, and the grazers. Difficult to spot the Cats that's the only disappointment.

Didn't get to see any of the Cats (Lions, leopards, cheetah) but that's a given due to the time of day we went. The highlights were definitely the chimpanzee sanctuary and Baraka the Blind Rhino. The staff were extremely knowledgeable and really gave us a good understanding of their efforts to conserve not just Kenya, but Africa's wild life. If... More

This conservancy combines it all: a very effective conservation model with a top class rated Ranger Response Unit in case of a poaching attempt (www.gofundme.com/olpejeta if you are interested in some info on this - the rangers are amazing); easy access (good road apart from the last few miles, the rest better than in many western countries!) from Nairobi via...

We were really impressed! On arrival at the gate we were welcomed with big smiles and asked to enter the office to purchase the tickets. After signing in on an iPad we were sent off by the sanctuary staff wishing us a great safari. The national park has a lot to offer! We have seen giraffes, white rhinos, lions, zebras,... More

We bought a map at the entrance and drove around the conservancy. The Chimpanzee Sanctuary was very educative. We also saw hippos, rhinos, buffaloes,etc. The wardens are very helpful and knowledgeable. Unfortunately we were not able to see any of the cats.

We chose Ol Pejeta to start off our 2014 and were not disappointed. Fantastic to see the Black Rhino thriving here and with two packs of African Hunting Dog it must be THE place in Kenya to connect with them. I had two full days photographing them at a den and had an amazing and thrilling time with them. The... More

A great place to visit especially if you're after black and white rhinos. They are the largest rhino conservancy in East Africa and we saw approx 20 different rhinos on our day visit. Coupled with two lionesses made a great day visit. There's a lot of other wildlife in the park - buffalo, zebras, giraffes, gazelles, etc. If you are... More

One of the main reasons for visiting this area of Kenya was to see rhino, and it certainly did not let us down. We were lucky to see rhino on each game drive, and on one day saw a total of 15 animals

Well, we were unrepeatably lucky. We had the Wild Dogs for 2 1/2 days and were able to sit with them for extended periods of time. Hence we were unable to do much other game viewing. nevertheless, we had an amazing Lion and Jackal interaction and quite a few other things. The conservancy does not feel like 100% bush, however,...
