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.

So, at this point I've been to six Kenya national parks/safaris. I expressly went to Ol Pegeta to see the last few white rhinos but didn't get to see them. Once in the park, I was told that not only did we have to make a reservation, but also pay extra (over $300) to see the white rhinos. so I... More

I am thankful for the efforts Ol Pejeta has made in the area of wildlife conservation, particularly caring for rhinos. Though I am concerned about elephants, I do believe that we people on earth now may see the extinction of rhinos. Ol Pejeta is working to keep them alive. This conservancy is wonderfully run, forward-looking and deserves attention and support.

We visited several conservancies in Kenya and thought that Ol Pejeta had the least authentic fell to it, for a reason. The consrvancy is doing great work to protect endangered species of rhino and rehabilitate chimpanzees. Both of these groups, by necessity, are behind fences or enclosures and take away from the game drive experience of other conservancies. I felt... More

Ol Pejeta is a long drive from Nairobi, but definitely worth it. The variety of wildlife is excellent, and always very easy to view. The map of the conservancy with marked junctions is really helpful, and it is worth making use of their facility to leave your mobile number so that they can text you with important sightings and their...

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...
