About 200 kilometers north of Nairobi, near Mount Kenya National Park, Ol Pejeta Conservancy is a prime place for close-up wildlife encounters. Conservation and sustainability are key at this 90,000-acre private game reserve.
The Conservancy is home to the Big Five, lion, leopard, rhino, elephant, and buffalo as well as other animals such as cheetah, hyenas, zebra, and hartebeest.
The conservancy is known for its northern and southern white rhinos.
Ol Pejeta is set against the breathtaking backdrop of snow-capped Mount Kenya.
Visitors can view the wildlife on self-drive or guided tours, and entry includes a visit to the chimpanzee sanctuary.
Day visitors are welcome and have an option to extend the wilderness adventure. Visitors can stay overnight in accommodations that range from bush camps and safari cottages to a charming colonial ranch house.
