Ol Pejeta Conservancy

Highlights: Views of Mt Kenya, chimpanzee sanctuary, tame rhino, big five, wild dogs.

Previously known as Sweetwaters, Ol Pejeta is a privately-owned 90,000 acre wildlife conservancy. Originally a cattle ranch, in some areas you will still see wildlife and cattle grazing happily side by side.

Around a three and a half hour drive north of Nairobi, the conservancy sits on the equator, high on a plateau, between the foothills of the Aberdares range and Mount Kenya. It hosts a wide variety of animals, including the 'big five', and many bird species. On a clear day, and normally in the morning, you have panoramic views of Mt Kenya and her snow-capped peaks. The conservancy has a variety of habitats including thick scrub, marsh lands, rivers and open plains.

Ol Pejeta is committed to conservation and have a number of projects to protect endangered specias, including white and black rhino. They also have a chimpanzee sanctuary which is home to these primates who have been rescued from abusive or captive situations. There are a number of unique experiences which you can add to a safari including a night game drive and lion tracking.
