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.

Didn't stay here, but visited for a day. Wow! Great animal viewing and oodles of respect for the sanctuaries for chimps and rhinos. Highly recommended.

A amazing trip and experience. We also took the opportunity to pay for the Northern White Rhino experience, it was absolutely incredible and truly a privilege to be so close to these amazing animals. If you head to Ol Pejeta....make sure you visit the northern white rhinos (the last 3 in the world!) as well as baby Ringo the rhino.

This wild life reserve scores high on various counts. It has scenic locales as it lies in between the foothills of Mt. Kenya and the Aberdares. The views of Mt Kenya's snow capped peaks are simply beautiful. The climate is very pleasant. Mornings and evenings can get chilly. And of course the plentiful wildlife. Within the conservancy you can also... More

This conservancy is a must to visit and stay. The tented huts are situated around a waterhole and most animals come and visit and you are only 30ft away separated by an electric fence. It is amazing. On the safari drives you see rhino, giraffe, leopard, elephants, gazelle, zebra (2 types) hyena, warthogs, buffalo, we didn't see lions or cheetah... More

We say every animal imaginable - highlights were the Critically endangered Northern White Rhinos - go visit them in their reserve and the hyenas who are very inquisitive.

A stunning setting in which to see all these animals in their natural habitat. Home to 106 Black Rhino, being a significant percentage of the remaining worldwide population.

So many animals can be seen in a small area, including rhino, elephants, lion, cheetah. Recommended for first time visitors to Kenya, or indeed anyone else. This was our second visit and was just as wonderful as the first.

Our Afternoon sojourn into this world famous sanctuary was a trip down memory lane because I have been involved in its existence throughout my life in one way or another. The abundant elephant and plains game grazing peacefully was a joyous experience and knowing that their safety is guaranteed by the sophisticated security apparatus is heartwarming.

Seeing the last three northern white rhinos was a very emotional experience. We could get really close to them because they are used to people. They are guarded 24/7 which is a necessity.
