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.

Saw wonderful rhinos, zebra, birds, cheetah, giraffe and more at this great conservancy. We stayed onsite at Kaicheche, which was a small and very comfortable camp with excellent food. Ol Pejeta also sits on the equator, which makes for an unparalleled photo opportunity. Very memorable.

Good park with a decent level of density for grazers. Lots of rhinos (white) and if you stay at Sweetwaters, you'll likely see the black rhinos at the waterhole after nightfall. Saw two cheetah sisters and lots of jackal. Several lions and elephants as well. No hyena or hippos. The chimp and Baraka enclosures are worth visiting.

It is a small conservancy compared to the parks and but expensive but it is worth going. It is 3/4 hours away from Nairobi and it can be done in one day as I did but probably staying overnight is a smarter move. You easily realise why this park is more expensive than the others but it is worth every... More

Ol Pejeta is great to see lots of animals in a small place in a short time. At one point I counted 11 different species from a single spot where I stopped my car and took pictures galore. Rhinos are star attractions but somewhat sadly their rarest specimens are fenced in a sort of high security prison to protect them... More

It was great to see all big five for sure. We even got to see a rhino family (mom, dad and baby). It was very sad to see the rhino cemetery.

Apart from seeing 14 lions in two prides - which the guides admitted was a bit lucky though - we saw eland, thompson, grant, steenbuck, buffalo, black and white rhino, giraffe, wharthog, austrich, zebra and elephants of course. Not to speak of the many different birds. The team - Lenny... More

Ol Pajeta was an eye opener for me. Not only because it was a very pretty 'park' but also because people have gone to painful lengths to keep animals like the Rhino safe here. Miles and miles and miles of fencing which is prohibitively expensive is not an option here. An absolute mind blowing experience. If you want to see... More
