~Innovative, tangible, sustainable conservation for wildlife and people.~
Ol Pejeta Conservancy
Ol Pejeta Conservancy – a 90,000-acre private wildlife conservancy – is situated on the equator in Kenya's Laikipia District, between the foot hills of the Aberdares and the magnificent snow-capped Mount Kenya.
Ol Pejeta Conservancy boasts an astounding variety of animals, including the Big Five (the endangered black and white rhino, leopard, elephant, buffalo and lion), Grevy’s zebra, Jackson’s hartebeest, cheetah and chimpanzee. The combination of amazing wildlife and stunning views across the open plains of Ol Pejeta guarantees an unforgettable safari experience. As a safe and secure private sanctuary, Ol Pejeta Conservancy can guarantee a hassle-free safari experience with amazing wildlife viewing on good all-weather roads. Ol Pejeta Conservancy is only 3 hours drive from Nairobi and welcomes day visitors. Ol Pejeta Conservancy’s main gate is 14 kilometres from the equator turn off, just before Nanyuki town. Visitors to Ol Pejeta Conservancy will pay a conservation fee for each day spent inside the Conservancy which includes a visit to the Chimpanzee Sanctuary.
Africa’s most iconic species hunt, graze, breed and fight for survival on the plains of Ol Pejeta every day, in an ecosystem that has the highest densities of wildlife in Kenya outside of the Maasai Mara. Using the latest technology to monitor species populations, and smart fencing techniques that allow free movement of migratory wildlife, Ol Pejeta prides itself on being at the cutting edge of conservation innovation. As the largest black rhino sanctuary in East Africa, and the only place in Kenya to see chimpanzees, Ol Pejeta is also safeguarding some of the most vulnerable wildlife in the world, and advocating for change.
When you come for an Ol Pejeta safari, you’re not just visiting – you are leaving a lasting legacy. This isn’t passive conservation; this is get-your-hands dirty, smell-the-elephant breath conservation. Help preserve the future of big cats by tracking lions with our rangers, or see if you’ve got what it takes to be a rhino bodyguard. Follow paw prints through bush on foot for the most intimate safari of your lifetime, or get an all-access pass to the wilderness after dark.
