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 really liked the trip to the highlands of Kenya into Nanyuki. About 4 hours from Nairobi, its a town located at the foot of Mt. Kenya. Driving through the conservancy you can still spot the mountain clearly as well. The chimpanzee sanctuary and rhino place were a real treat. Learned a lot about the animals there and got to... More

This location was suggested by our Tour Company Africa Adventure Company and it was spot on. I was worried being a conservation it... More

Ol Pejeta is breath taking. I was so incredibly lucky to see so many amazing animals in the wild. It's a truest fantastic experience and would recommend this highly. They work so hard to protect the wildlife and really hope everyone who visits will support there conservation work and do what they can to educate others

paid $40 for an hour private tour and photo session with the Rhino. The staff was well educated about the Rhino and shared in an interesting manner.

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...
