OL Pejeta Conservancy Kenya

Ol Pejeta Conservancy is a 90,000 acre wildlife conservancy that has a higher wildlife-to-area ratio than any Kenyan national park and is one of only four private game conservancies to have been founded in Kenya.

Ol Pejeta Conservancysits on a 90,000 acres -wildlife conservancy situated between the foothills of Mount Kenya and the Aberdares and its game-to-area ratio tops the Kenyan park and reserve league. Ol Pejeta has over 10000 large mammals and it is the only park where the big 5 and chimpanzees can be seen. It is also where the fastest growing population of rhino in Africa can be found. There are southern white rhino, about 80 endangered black rhino and in a special sanctuary there are four of the world's last seven remaining northern white rhino.

Conservation is often about innovation, and nowhere is this philosophy more apparent than at Ol Pejeta. For example, the controversial but highly successful integration of wildlife and livestock means that the traditional conflict between the two interests is avoided and innovative ways to meet the needs of both wildlife and livestock can be met and maintained.

It is host to all the members of the ‘Big Five' (elephant, rhino, lion, buffalo and leopard), and at the forefront of the Kenyan conservancy programme, the conservancy boasts the largest black rhino sanctuary in East Africa, hosts the only chimpanzee sanctuary in Kenya, and shelters large numbers of rare and endangered species. The combination of amazing wildlife and stunning views across the open plains of Ol Pejeta guarantees an unforgettable safari experience.
