If you're looking for a unique experience in the Kenyan bush, this is it. The bush camp is located smack in the middle of the Ol Pejeta Conservancy on the banks of a river. So there's a constant parade of wildlife (on the other side of the river!) that you can take in from either your tent, the dining tent... More

The campsite is very beautiful and all the tents were amazing. All the food we got was also excellent and all my allergy requests about the food were fulfilled. Service in the camp is on a level that I have never felt before and the staff members are friendly to a point that it seems little funny to a Finnish... More

The river curls around the camp with its steep, verdant banks acting as a natural barrier between rich wildlife and guests lounging in comfort or relishing a Tusker beer by the camp fire. Real elephantine tuskers paused on the opposite bank enjoying the salt lick. We were there after the rains with young animals abundant - 'tiny' elephants suckling, jackal... More

Not only was I greeted with a refreshing beverage and warm towel to wash up, but minutes after relaxing in the guest tent facing the river, a large bull elephant came out of the bush to say hello (I'm pretty sure that's what he said anyway!). I can't say enough about the entire staff and Alex and the accommodations -... More

A colleague and I were undecided on what we should do for our weekend off on a work trip. After a few emails back and forth from Alex we decided to head to Ol Pajeta Bush Camp. This proved to be a great decision and we both left reluctantly! From pick up to drop off we were impressed with the... More

This was a return visit for me but the first for my wife; to say she was blown away by the experience would not be an overstatement. The camp strikes an excellent balance between being in genuine bush country while providing a very comfortable stay between 'game drives'. It's greatest asset is Alex Hunter who, in addition to managing the... More

Having a few days off school mid we week I decided to sneak off on safari with my two children. We were so lucky to have the whole camp to ourselves and be spoilt rotten. Anything we wanted was provided with a smile and all the reviews below were correct about comfy beds, hot water bottles and amazing night sounds.... More

Ol Pejeta is a stunning conservancy, with awesome views of Mount Kenya and an abundance of wildlife. Alex Hunter's Bush Camp is the perfect place to stay - every detail has been carefully designed, the tents are very comfortable and well equipped, but the sense of adventure and exploration remains. Positioned at the rivers' edge, with wonderful food, and drinks... More
