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.

Small conservation area where you can see the last 3 northern White Rhinos in the world. Saw quite a few other animals roaming free including southern white rhinos. Makes for a worthwhile visit.

The fact that this is the last hope for the northern white rhino is enough to visit Ol Pejeta. They are also great work on wildlife and livestock grazing management. And it's a great place for a day's safari.

Ol Pejeta is a must-do for all tourists in Kenya. We paid the extra $40 for our party to have a close-up encounter with the northern white rhinos. Being able to touch Sudan, the last surviving male in the world is well worth the money....More
