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 never expected to be within a crash of rhinos, up close and personal. The tour is a real gem with experienced guides. A must see.

This was my second visit to Ol Pejeta and it was great to witness the good and important work that they are doing for Northern white rhino and the black rhino along with all the other wildlife that the park protects. They have small gift shop at the main gate with some nice products to buy to help support conservation.

A visit with the last three Northern White Rhino was so sad yet I treasured the chance to see them. A beautiful place with amazing wildlife to enjoy!

The Sweetwaters Chimpanzee Sanctuary is part of the Ol Pejeta Conservancy. We visited the site as part of one of our game drives from the Sweetwater Camp. There is not a lot to see, but the guide was very informative about the necessity for the Sanctuary as well as how the chimps were housed and treated. The chimps were divided... More

Visited Ol Pejeta for a day trip and can safely say that you definitely need to spend a few days here. I was fortunate to encounter 3 rhinos (2 black and 1 white), 2 very large bull elephants, giraffes and other plains game. Meeting Baraka was most definitely a highlight, as was hearing his story. Seeing the rescued chimpanzees was... More

I spent four weeks just outside Ol Pejeta, so I could do game drives in every morning. This is a wonderful place! The eastern side of the conservancy is very easy to get around if you're self-driving, because they provide markers at track intersections. The western side is a bit more challenging but worth the effort. During the week, you'll... More
