Stayed at Ol Pejeta Bush Camp with my family (incl 5 children) in July 2014 and we simply had the best time ever. We saw some wonderful wildlife (day and night), ate some really delicious food and loved the setting in the middle of nowhere sleeping and eating in rather sophisticated tents. But what made the stay truly fantastic was the kindness of everybody without exception and the feeling of friendliness throughout the whole camp. Thank you so much to Alex, James, Abdi and everybody else for making this holiday memorable.

We have just had the most wonderful trip to the Bush Camp. We booked spontaneously, looking for a night out of Nairobi and stumbled upon the link to the Camp. We did not know anything about the Conservancy or the Bush Camp and WOW did we have an amazing time. We have experienced a number of lodges and parks in both South Africa and Kenya and our time at the Bush Camp has to be one of the most incredible 24 hours we have ever had. From an amazing location, to tastefully decorated communal areas, extremely beautiful and private riverside tents to the most welcoming and down to earth staff. You truly felt the value of an owner-run camp when meeting Alex, James and the rest of the team not to mention our amazing guide Duma, who delivered lion, cheetah, wild dog, black and white rhino all in less than 24 hours!!
We will most definitely be returning soon and would highly recommend this experience!

Thank you so much for this lovely review. We were so pleased with what you guys said that we posted it on our facebook page!

What an amazing 24 hours you had, it's so great that you got to see so much wildlife in such a short space of time. Thank you for booking with us again so soon, we look forward to having you back. The wild dogs have had their pups now and they are just starting to come out and explore so you have something to look forward to!

See you both soon!

James and Alex

We stayed in this camp in July 2014 as a family of four having heard good reports from a local friend.
The camp is small and private and maintains the raw excitement of bush camping whilst is extremely comfortable and well equipped. You experience the camping feeling in a kingside bed with hot water showers,immaculate linen,flush toilets and 5* food and drinks offered.
Alex Hunter is a consummate professional without the usual drivel talked by many 'safari guides' and caters for absolutely everything you might need. As a family with two boys aged 11 and 9 we had the best ever time at this camp and I cannot recommend it highly enough.

The ambience is superb, it makes you feel at home, Alex, is there to welcome you, take you around and give insightful info, the meals are great. The tents...... No words can describe it, you have to experience it to really understand.

Room Tip: My tent was by the river, at night the flowing river waters was like a soothing lullaby

Previous reviews have said it all already, however I am happy to add my voice to those recommending Ol Pejeta for an authentic bush camp experience. We spotted 26 different species of mammal at this conservancy & it does give you hope that humanity & nature can co-exist. We especially enjoyed the escorted walking safaris that Alex runs. As he describes them " See less, feel more". The night game drive are also a different way to experience Africa. My only advice to other visitors is that Laikipia plateau is cold at night & early in the morning, despite being bang on the Equator, so take a windcheater & microfleece.

Thank you for your kind words, we're glad you enjoyed your stay here and appreciated the diversity of the conservancy. It really is a great conservation story and we feel lucky to be a part of it.

Good advice regarding the cold weather! I definitely wished I had a few more fleeces and jackets whilst up the mountain!

I will pass your kind words onto Alex and the rest of the team and we hope you return soon.
