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.

The beauty about this Conservancy is that one does not have to travel far to see the big five. We managed to see all but the lions who proved elusive. The lions are tracked by the game wardens by GPRS and this makes it easier for guests to locate them. The conservancy is also home to the Chimpanzee Sanctuary and... More

its amazing to see so many rhinos wandering around. And really fun to feed the blind rhino. It is a bit expensive though. But convenient as only 30-40 mins from Nanyuki, and the roads are pretty good so you don't really need a 4x4

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
