We got to feed and pet a rhino here, are you kidding me? That was a huge highlight but seeing their chimp rehab center and all the good work they are doing to safe the wonderful African wildlife is worth supporting with a visit. In this area we also saw many giraffes, zebra and a beautiful mother/child rhino pair grazing... More

Shame that plastic was blowing in from nearby village which spoilt one of our drives. Loads of rangers on patrol .

We got to see a leopard, lions, and African wild dogs but for us, the highlight was the rhino, which we had not seen in other camps in Africa. The chimpanzee sanctuary is a bit sad to see, but it was o.k. We went on two night game drives, but didn't see much during those.

Just three-and-a-half hour's drive from Nairobi, this gem of a park is unjustly underrated. I have been to many parks in Kenya, but somehow, only here I could see rhinos and lions literally within arm's reach from our car. However, one night is enough to stay in this conservancy. Do not expect to see as many wild animals as you... More

Endangered Chimpanzee Sanctuary AND Northern White Rhino's! Wow! all in one fantastic area of Kenya. We visited both while guests at Porini Rhino Camp. Along with seeing all manner of Wildlife and even the landscape is awesome to see. Being at the base of Mt. Kenya, bring some warm clothes as the nights get chilly. While here we also had... More

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...
