My dad and I spent three nights at Ol Pejeta during a recent trip to Kenya. Watching the animals gather around the watering hole was just incredible... we saw fifty elephants our first day! You won't believe the incredible amount of wildlife you'll see here, whether you're on a game drive, a bike safari, or just hanging out at Sweetwaters.... More

I went to Ol Pejeta on an Earthwatch Trip and had a wonderful experience. We stayed at the research center, and worked entirely with the wonderful Kenyans who run and guard the Conservancy. The research center was much more basic but also much more 'real' than safari lodges for tourists, and it was comfortable, very friendly and had great food.... More

On our safari we stopped here and loved it! The staff is amazing, all the African wildlife can be seen from roads traversing the 90,000 acre preserve, and created a special experience we will remember forever. I have a video about the park at this link: youtu.be/DZESAy7YCro We were even able to get up close and touch a rhino's horn!

Privately owned, the Ol Pejeta Conservancy need the great support of concerned visitors on wildlife. Within its huge conservancy of 90,000 acres, the Big 5 are in abundance. We saw more big game animals here than any other game parks we passed through the last few days including the Maasai Mara. However we were very impressed with the Chimpanzee Sanctuary... More

I spent 2.5 weeks at Ol Pejeta working on a project with the Conservancy's staff. I spent most days walking through various parts of the Conservancy. Being surrounded by the magnificent animals and scenery was awe inspiring. Jaw dropping really. In the evenings the staff would take us on drives through the Conservancy to observe the nocturnal behaviors of the... More

We were lucky to visit this terrific Conservancy, particularly famous for Black Rhino! We saw plenty of them. In fact we were totally spoiled, seeing cheetah every day, plenty lion, hyena, lots of elephant, baboons, zebras, including the grevys zebra, giraffe and of course every antelope imaginable! Unfortunately we didn't see leopard, but we'll be back and hopefully next time!... More

Excellent choice for the Kenyan wildlife experience! You have lot to choose from in terms of accomodation, length of stay (from half day to a week or even longer), places to see and animals to watch and learn from.

During the game drive we were lucky to see black rhino, elephants, jackals, and spotted hyenas. We then went onto to the conservancy where we toured the ranch. The staff is very nowledgeable and we actually saw a snake when watching the chimpanzees that have been rescued from captivity. We were able to fee Baraka the Blind Rhino and tour... More

This was our first visit to Ol Pejeta and we loved it. The park is well-maintained, the price to get in was reasonable and we saw lots of game! We spent four nights at one of the lodges within the park and opted to pay for two of the excursions offered -- the night game drive and the lion tracking.... More
