We stayed at the Ol Pejeta bush camp for 4 nights. We arrived in Nairobi at 4 in the morning and after only 3 hours drive we were catapulted into the middle of the true and wilderness nature of Africa, the one you read about in books. Warthogs that run fast with their tail straight (African Express), Zebras crossing the... More

Stayed at Ol Pejeta Bush Camp with my family (incl 5 children) in July 2014 and we simply had the best time ever. We saw some wonderful wildlife (day and night), ate some really delicious food and loved the setting in the middle of nowhere sleeping and eating in rather sophisticated tents. But what made the stay truly fantastic was... More

We have just had the most wonderful trip to the Bush Camp. We booked spontaneously, looking for a night out of Nairobi and stumbled upon the link to the Camp. We did not know anything about the Conservancy or the Bush Camp and WOW did we have an amazing time. We have experienced a number of lodges and parks in... More

We stayed in this camp in July 2014 as a family of four having heard good reports from a local friend. The camp is small and private and maintains the raw excitement of bush camping whilst is extremely comfortable and well equipped. You experience the camping feeling in a kingside bed with hot water showers,immaculate linen,flush toilets and 5* food... More

The ambience is superb, it makes you feel at home, Alex, is there to welcome you, take you around and give insightful info, the meals are great. The tents...... No words can describe it, you have to experience it to really understand.

Previous reviews have said it all already, however I am happy to add my voice to those recommending Ol Pejeta for an authentic bush camp experience. We spotted 26 different species of mammal at this conservancy & it does give you hope that humanity & nature can co-exist. We especially enjoyed the escorted walking safaris that Alex runs. As he...

Ol Pejeta Bush Camp has a really welcoming feeling as soon you arrive. Alex (the owner) and James are brilliant hosts and make you feel at home. The tents are large and spacious and the hot water bottles at night are a great extra. The food is top class and they catered brilliantly for me as I am a vegetarian.The... More

I have never written a second review for the same place on tripadvisor however Ol Pejeta bush camp deserves more attention as a bush experience, because it simply outstrips in terms of excellence and camp or lodge of its kind in Kenya.
