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.

I just wanted to post a big thank you to everyone at Ol Pejeta for taking such good care of my son and his friend (special thanks to Cyrus and Caroline). He was there to observe, collect information for his dissertation and get a feel for life on a Conservancy and he had the most amazing time. I would recommend... More

A brilliant place! We stayed in the Stables which were great value. Basic but clean and very friendly staff. The food was really good considering the price. This is one of the few relatively reasonably priced places you can find for safaris, as Kenya has clearly gone down the route of catering only to very high end tourists. We did... More

We did see one rhino outside of this place, in Nairobi National Park, but if you want to be assured of seeing these seriously endangered animals, you need to visit this conservancy. We saw a bunch, some up very close. For 20 minutes we watched a mother white rhino and its day's old newborn graze as the sun set. Very... More

Ol Pejeta Conservancy is filled with all sorts of game. On any game drive one will encounter the big cats, elephants, rhinos, buffalos and most of the plains antelopes. Smaller cats and birds are ubiquitous. The important stops here are at the chimp sanctuary and the Northern White Rhino sanctuary, where the world's last three remaining Northern Whites reside in...

Albert, our guide and driver, was able to find the beautiful animals of the Kenyan plains...lions, zebras, rhinos, elephants...both the Chimp sanctuary and the Rhino sanctuary are must sees...we all need to help both these sanctuaries as they work hard to aid and keep safe animals who are subjected to unkindness by some humans. This is a must see area... More

Ol Pejeta is a great conservancy which appeared to be not as frequented as other parks and conservancies. It also relatively high in terms of altitude and hence you need to be prepared for cold nights. Navigation in the park - in case you do a self-drive safari - is relatively easy. Once of the highlights is the Rhino sanctuary... More

Thank you for your comments, we appreciate them.. Just to reassure you Ringo did not die from a disease passed on by humans. In fact, he appears to have had a disorder – likely congenital – that may have led to brittle bones and multiple fractures that were undetected for a long period of time, and eventually resulted in infection....

We stayed at Sweetwaters Serena Tented camp and had a day visit to the Chimp and Rhino Sanctuary in Ol Pejeta. The chimps and rhinos are in protected area. Overall very good experience. Highly recommended.
