We spent a single night at Ol Pejeta Bush Camp in Aug 2016 and wished our safari itinerary had included a much longer stay, as this was unanimously agreed within our family to be the best place we stayed at during our time in Kenya. The riverside location, the standard of accommdation, the HOT bush showers, the amazing food, the... More

Ol Pejeta Bush Camp is a simple yet wonderful camp located in the middle of Ol Pejeta Conservancy. Organised by TrueAfrica - The Safari Company, I stayed with friends for two nights, being just a 3 hour drive from Nairobi. The food was of an incredibly high standard, featuring fresh salads, vegetables and meat dishes, which were healthy and yet... More

We only spend one night here and I wished we had more. Amazing experience as our backyard was close to the pond where animals roamed... we saw baby rhinos at night drinking from the little lake!! Very enjoyable to just relax and lounge to watch the animals by your camp, which are very comfortable and well furnished. It gets chilly... More

We visited the conservancy to have a view of the rare species that can not be found around other game parks in Kenya. It was a marvel at Gods creation experience when we had an encounter with the chimpanzees (Max, George and Poko), you blew our heads off. Having a sight of the almost extinct black rhino was magical.

We stayed at Ol Pejeta for three days, and wish we had time to stay longer. If you're looking for a wonderful Kenyan experience that feels real (and not crazy luxurious), this is your tranquil heaven. We arrived and were met at the airstrip for the easy drive to Ol Pejeta. The camp itself is a lovely network of real... More
