Ol Pejeta Conservancy: 4 Compelling Reasons to Explore It


Are you planning a trip to Kenya to see the famous parks of Masai Mara, Amboseli, or Tsavo? But have you heard anything about Ol Pejeta Conservancy? What if we told you this park offers an exclusive experience you can’t get anywhere else? Ready to break from the template and go on a real adventure? We’re about to explain 4 Compelling Reasons to Explore Ol Pejeta Conservancy. 

Getting there from Nairobi is a breeze!

Fortunately, Ol Pejeta is not one of those parks that beckon with beautiful nature but are logistically difficult to access. The reserve is only 200 kilometers from Nairobi, so you can easily get here by jeep. Unless you’re not ready to spend a couple of hours on the road, we can arrange a flight for you! Ol Pejeta has an airstrip for those who prefer to use private planes. 

One of the best places to see wildlife

Ol Pejeta is neither a commercial park nor a tourist attraction. The purpose of its creation was to preserve the population of rare animal species. For example, for those who have always dreamed of seeing a black rhino, there is no better park than Ol Pejeta. This reserve is home to some of the largest populations of black rhinos. In addition, here you will not be deprived of the opportunity to see all the representatives of the African Big Five. The reserve aims to increase the population of the same lions, leopards, elephants, and so on, so you will certainly meet these animals. 

Go to Ol Pejeta and you could be one of the few to see the world’s last two white rhinos. There are currently two female white rhinos living in the park. 

Ol Pejeta is also the only place in Kenya where you can see chimpanzees. In other words, Ol Pejeta is a rare gem where you can witness not only the iconic African Big Five but also the captivating presence of chimpanzees. Be sure to visit the Sweetwaters chimpanzee sanctuary! It is home to several dozen chimpanzees native to West and Central Africa. Some of them have lost their mothers. Others have been kidnapped and kept in cages and other difficult conditions for a long time. Many animals were left homeless as their habitat was destroyed. But thanks to Ol Pejeta and Sweetwaters, the chimps have found a new home in semi-wild conditions.

Lots of activities within the park 

Embark on an unforgettable safari experience at Ol Pejeta, where the adventure extends far beyond wildlife sightings. Here, amidst Kenya’s stunning landscapes, you’ll witness vital conservation processes firsthand.

One of the highlights is observing the dedicated rangers in action. These unsung heroes tirelessly monitor the park, tracking poachers and safeguarding the welfare of its inhabitants. Accompanied by their loyal companions—specially trained dogs—the rangers demonstrate remarkable skill and dedication, offering a captivating glimpse into their vital role in wildlife protection.

Of course, classic safari activities like morning and evening game drives await, promising thrilling encounters with Africa’s iconic wildlife. For those seeking an extra dose of excitement, the night game drives unveil exclusive scenes of nocturnal wildlife activity. In between, explore the park on horseback or embark on a walking safari, immersing yourself in the untamed beauty of Ol Pejeta.

With its diverse range of activities and the promise of captivating encounters at every turn, Ol Pejeta ensures that boredom is simply not an option. Prepare for an adventure that will leave you spellbound, long after you’ve left its breathtaking landscapes behind.
