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.

On property only about a half day. With excellent wildlife insight provided by local resources to our small group of four, we saw 4 of the big 5 - missed giraffes for some reason. Probably because the well managed conservancy covers 100,000 acres and we...More

Ol Pej is fantastic. Its some of the best game viewing in the country which is a pleasure in such well managed Conservancy. Its a much better quality experience than in the run down and over run national parks (sadly).

The only thing we were a bit disappointed with was the Chimp Sanctuary. Due to the chain link fence you could not get good pictures of the chimps as the fence was in the way. Socrates certainly posed for pictures though. Once the downpour started,...More

This conservancy is often overlooked in favour of the Maasai Mara, despite being only a few hours drive from Nairobi. It is truly a world class conservancy, at the forefront of protecting endangered species, and working in harmony with the local population. The game drive...More
